So I'm getting some random artifacts that look like black horizontal bars, weird thing is that they only appear on Windows and when I have a game opened but it happens random(about 8-9 times so far in the past few months). Restarting the computer will fix the issue but I would like to fix it completely if possible. Alt tabbing to the game and everything is normal but returning to windows the artifacts are still there. I will have a video of the artifacts linked.

list pc specs please.

and try this out:
1- run furmark make sure gpu is at 98%+
2- leave it running for a 5 minutes
3- check GPU temp.
4- do you see any artifacts?
this will rule out temp issue.

let me know.
