Hello people. I've been trying to figure out a problem with my computer but haven't been able to do so, so I came to this forum to see if any of you knew what was going. Basically what happens is my monitor will turn "deep fried" for maybe half a second then return to normal, this never happens in games only outside of games. I should add that it doesn't happen often either as well maybe 4-5 times a day or less. I also swapped monitors recently to see if that would fix it but it didn't so I'm guessing it's an issue with my GPU?

To explain the "deep fried" - the colors go sort of darker like in the image. (I'm not joking, this is just the easiest representation)

To be fair, where this could be a variety of issues....since that is a new-ish Dell system (and I hate to do you like this) it would be best to contact their customer service support and walk them through the issue with you. It could end up being a warranty issue and you really don't want to go fishing around in there hunting in a way they could perceive as voiding said.

i have the exact same problem, but never while playing games
are you using windows 11 too?
Yeah I am using Windows 11 - it might have something to do with Windows 11 specifically but I haven't reverted back to Windows 10 yet, however I did turn off "Hardware Acceleration" within my browser and I haven't noticed it for almost half a day now. You can try that out & see if it works for you as well.

I have the same problem too. I am also using Windows 11. Maybe this is an issue with Windows 11? This happens to me when I'm watching a video on youtube or something. The taskbar also has that effect (maybe it is not a problem with the browser?)

Does it still have the problem? If not, what did you do to fix it?
