    Hello all, I'm looking for a bit of insight from anyone here who might've seen this problem before or knows what is up. I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers, restarting, etc. When I disable the 1080 in the laptop, the problem ceases. I just bought this laptop 3 weeks ago from Amazon, so I'm trying to figure out if this is a simple fix or do I need to get a refund.

    Text disappears at random on the screen, there are random colors stretched across the screen from a lot of images/colors and in game there are black lines flying around the screen stemming from character models/textures in game. I don't have a second monitor ATM to try.

    Here are some images of what happens.

    Are you on discrete GPU mode or UMA GPU mode? discrete GPU is the gtx1080. Are you in ECO Mode?
