    Hello,

    Last night my computer suddenly started showing all these graphic pixelation of different colors. An image example of these pixelation is show below. I already tried reinstalling the video card but its not helping. At the same time, I don't really know what is wrong with it. I'm using an ATI Raedon Pro 128 mb video card. Can anyone please help me. Thanks in advance.

    that looks like a corrupted bitmap in your gackground, since the overlaying icons are not affected nor is the message box. is that only where you see it?

    download memtest86 and check that you dont have a faulty stick of ram

    It's actually all over the desktop.. that's just a bad image example I gave
    someone else told me it could be the chipset that is causing the problem.. looks like i might have to buy a new computer :(

    Looks like bad VGA RAM to me. Alternately, it could be broken VGA drivers.
