Hey people,

So recently on another post I got some help with my pc not not having enough power to supply my PC with the required power; so onto my next problem which I encountered, I have been getting VPS watchdog violation blue screens googled these and I’ve been told not to worry and to update my drivers.

I updated my drivers and got things sorted but then I’ve now got a new problem which will be shown with two images. Honestly I believe my PC is cursed or I am, but if anyone can help me with finding an understanding on what’s causing this, it’ll be highly appreciated.

Being PC'less on a University course which requires a PC ain't easy. (My gut instinct is telling me this could be GPU related, or HDD).

Specs:
Corsair RM850 PSU.
Nvidia 1080 ti.
2TB Toshiba HDD.
Corsair Vengeance 2x8 DDR4.
CPU: i7 7900K
Mobo: MSI MPG Z390 Gaming PLUS.

I'm not sure about the 1st image, but the 2nd one appears to be a really blocky version of the space invaders/white skulls artifacts, which I hope for your sake isn't the case...
Em, I’ve always wanted to play space invaders without the game 😅

But yeah if this has happened to anyone else I kinda need my gpu and can’t afford to replace it, also I legit thought it was square smash symbols in the first image 😂

You've got a great psu now...
You didn't mix ram, right?
No overclocks?

Are you able to get in with the gpu removed?
Nuuu RAM is the same make, no overclocks I got in without the gpu, but it keeps taking forever to boot now; I don’t know what’s wrong with the gpu to cause this either sadly, and it’s one of the main components I need for work, it might be a RIP

Unless they were packaged together, they are not the same.

What are the specs of this 2TB Toshiba HDD? How full is it?

I'm not 100% on this, but I think those artifacts are caused by a hardware defect, either on the PCB or within the silicon itself. The early retail 2080Ti models suffered from a similar issue. An RMA was the only solution for it.

After looking around some, it appears it wasn't exclusive to 2080Tis.
