Hello,

I don't know if this is the right place to post this so I'm sorry if I'm in the wrong section.

I recently bought a new monitor and than a new PC. I've been using the monitor with my PS4 for about a month and had no issues with it but I've since started having issue with it when using my new PC. I'm getting these strange green, and sometimes purple, pixels all around my screen. Updating my system fixed this last time but I'm not even sure what the issue is here. I have a new Display Port 1.4 cable between the two. Is it simply drivers or should I be returning the product and getting a new one? Hope you guys can clarify.

I prepared some screenshots but as I started to play with them I noticed that the green and purple pixels on them moved as I moved them across the screen. This is leading me to believe something is wrong with my monitor and not my CPU. Let me know if you can see the green pixels, which I assume will tell me it's the display and not the CPU. It's primarily on the left side of the screen and not the right. Dragging and image across the screen really shows this.
