Hi all,

I am not sure if this is a right section to post this because I am not sure what the problem is, witch is a main problem in itself.

Couple of days ego my PC started having all kind of problems, both hardware ones and software ones, I have a decent level of knowledge about PCs so I was detecting and slowing one by one but with this one I had hit a wall. I am not sure if a problem I have now is related to the ones I had already solved but since they all started occurring ether at a same time or strain one after another there is a chance they are so I will explain everything that has been happening in those few days with my PC.

First I was playing a game and I noticed in one place in my monitor few black pixels in a line showing up and disappear, I thought that maybe my monitor is going bad but since this didn't occur when I minimized a game I figured it is just a bug in game and I continued playing. After that those small black lines started slowly multiplying and in few hours I had them all over a monitor, and in a canter I would sometimes get pieces of graphic out of place appearing and disappearing just like those lines, as I thought it is just a problem in game I wanted to restart it but when I quit game I had some weird rainbow colored (more like a benzine on sun) lines on a few places on my desktop if I clicked on refresh those lines would disappear and others would appear so I tried restarting my PC and once PC has turned all colors and lines in applications and around windows ware all mixed up and my PC was ruining very slowly. I tried turning of my PC opening it and cleaning it up, especially graphic card as I didn't clean it recently and thought that might be causing problems (And it was absolutely terrible inside, dust, oily, something like mud, and even water was everywhere, I even found a dead mouse in it), after I cleaned it I turned my PC and it was working fine for couple of hours but then there was disappearance of electricity and when it come back and I turned my PC the problem was back and when I tried to restart it it wouldn't turn on, it starts turning on without displaying anything on monitor and just turns off, I tried turning it on several times but it was the same. I tried cleaning it some more but it had no result, so I decided to take it to my friend who has an air compressor to properly clean it up with it, after that my PC still wouldn't turn on but unlike before it wouldn't just start to turn and and shut down but would also start to turn on again. I had a similar problem before so I knew what it is, and that is more dust/dirt in a power supply unit so I opened it for some more cleaning, and I was right as after that it worked normally, for at least couple of hours until my PC just shut down and next problem occurred.
Next problem was similar like the one before it where PC would just shut down when I try to turn it on but this time it would properly start to turn on (displaying everything on monitor), I managed to enter a Bios like that and looked into a PC health and saw that my CPU is running in 90c and jumping up 10c per second before it shut down again (and it is pretty cold in my house 5c-15c). I opened my PC again to try to detect why my CPU is overheating and I found that things that attach my CPU cooler to Motherboard are broken and that cooler stands laxly over CPU. I went and both a new CPU cooler and that solved that problem but when my PC turned on after that my system was all messed up, not with colors like before but most functions didn't work like they should.
I thought that maybe my OS got somehow messed up when my CPU overheated so I tried reinstalling my OS, I done a clean reinstall (formatted a system partition before installing OS from scratch).
That did took care of most problems but some smaller ones ware still there, such as that one of my partitions didn't exist in my computer, I couldn't change a date from 1.1.2008 I was getting some not secure information on every site I tried to visit and some smaller problems like that I managed to solve problem per problem, for Date I just changed date in Bios and that also took care of not save notification I was getting and I simply assigned a letter in computer management to my partition for it to reappear. After some time I solved all problems and my PC worked perfectly for 2 days but without working my screen went black for a moment and when it went back I got a notification "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" and there there was a very first problem I had with colors again.
After that every time I turn on a PC colors are all mixed up, there are those rainbow lines across a screen and other visual mistakes, PC also works slowly. I tried googling for "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" and slowing problem but noting I tried had any affect. Couple of times colors got compositely messed up to the point where my screen was just bunch of wired cubes, triangles, lines and dots after witch a PC would give me a blue screen with some warning that I didn't menage to read and shut down. The more I used PC like that the worst it got. In a safe mode whoever my PC works just fine (I am posting this right now from a safe mode). I also tried scaning my PC with Malwarebytes Anti-Malware from safe mode and it did found something and asked me to restart a PC to finish fixing a problem but as after restart it started turning in a normal mode it displayed bunch of rainbow lines and shut down the moment it turned on (at a part After entering a password), when I turned it on in a safe mode again I saw everything it found was in quarantine but the problem was still there so I don't think that is a cause of a problem, if what it found even is a actual malware. But just in case here is a log of what it found:

Does anyone know what a problem could be?

Update:

Now I can't turn on a PC in a normal mode at all, the moment I turn it on I get bunch of reports about all apps that start up with windows crashing after witch more and more of those rainbow lines start showing up and then PC shuts down, after that when I turned it on in a save mode I got this notification:

Update 2:

Uninstalling Graphic Card Drivers makes it ok to turn PC in a normal mode.

With water inside, it's logical to consider water damage to anything electrical, which is most of the computer.


But the mouse was a bit unbelievable. Do you have any photos you'd like to share?

Well I think if it was water damage it wouldn't work at all not cause a problem only in normal mode, and apparently only when I have graphic drivers installed. So I think I avoided the worst outcome.

No I didn't take any photos. He was stuck around wires down where you connect turn on/restart buttons to motherboard so I am guessing electricity killed him.

How big was that mouse?
If it was a mommy mouse, maybe there are baby mice hiding out inside your computer?

Any signs of corrosion from mouse pee?

It was pretty small, small enough to get in true a back hole below where you connect graphic card to cable for monitor, I am not even sure why those exist for.

I didn't detect any corrosion.

Ummm......undetected mouse pee corrosion could wind up being a difficult problem to diagnose.


How deep was the water in your computer?
Hope you saved some.
Maybe you could have it tested for mouse pee contamination?

I'm serious.
You posted there was water in your computer, so how much?

With a mouse living in your computer, it doesn't seem a stretch to connect the mouse to the water in several ways.

If it's peeing, there might be some pee in that water and then you'd know there might be some unseen corrosion/short circuit damage.

Also, since the mouse entered from one end of the computer and died at the other, maybe it walked through the water, got damp, and shorted something out as it traversed your electrical components, especially since you think it was electrocuted.

Tough call, imo.
Could even be both issues.

There was too much water for it to had come from a mouse, true I am really not sure how to answer on how much or how I am suppose to measure such low quantities of water in separate places (as water wasn't on one place only but all over the PC). I think water comes from condensation.

True like I said I don't think that a current problem is on hardware part as the problem only occurs when I have graphic drivers installed.

Oh and regarding that, I didn't mention but i have AMD Radeon HD 6570.

Maybe you're getting closer to the problem?
Try a different graphics card and see what happens.

Also try out that 6570 in a different computer to see if it works properly.


Maybe it's just an issue with the 6570.

If both have issues in your computer, maybe there is a short in the motherboard from mouse/water/pee issues.

Of course, if this unusual condensation issue is great enough to cause water accumulation, I'd think there's potential for a lot more problems than just the video card.

You could strip down your computer and inspect all components and connections, but as there are components you can't look into and might be stressed, you might also be wasting your time on what may never be a computer that will be dependable.

So, fix as best as you can and then stress test it.

Me, after seeing a mouse and water in a computer of mine, I'd relegate it to my parts bin, but that's just me :)

I would do the same if I could afford it, at a moment I can at most afford a single component if I want anything decent.

I will do what you suggested, thanks. (Will let you know the results when I have them)

I think I slowed the problem, I cleaned the part where motherboard and GPU are connected and now it works fine, for now at least, I have no prof that problem won't reappear so now I can only wait and see what happens.

Edit: Nope, problem returned after couple of hours.

That's unfortunate.

Perhaps you'd have better luck moving your thread over to the Hardware forum?

Maybe after you get your hardware sorted out, you can address the unusual issue of finding potential malware after a clean install of your OS.
