    Please see screen dump attatched showing the problems I am having playing youtube videos and playing video files through Windows Media Player. I have Windows 7 64 bit and a Dell monitor desk top computer less than 12 months old. I am not sure of the actual graphics card installed but Nvidia with 3D option is installed, 3D option is disabled. The problem seems to occur after the computer has been running for some time. When the problem occurs I shut down the computer and the problem is gone. However after a while it comes back. Hoping someone can help. Cheers

    If the problem appears after the PC has been running, then it sounds like a heat related issue. Graphical glitches typically indicate a video card fault, but can also be caused by other hardware such as the power supply.

    The best test is to swap video cards, or test the card in another PC.
