    I was watching Netflix last night when all of a sudden my screen not really pixelated. I looked into the resolution of my screen and it was fine. I rebooted and turned off for the night and still no change. The lock screen is fine but after that any screen is distorted by pixels.

    Most likely a faulty video, you'd have to provide hardware details of your computer to get further suggestions though.

    I don’t know anything about computers so I don’t know what details to give.

    When creating this post there was an option to run the TSG System Information Utility that will give you and us basic system info, post that info here.


    Here is an addtional link to it: https://forums.techguy.org/threads/tsg-system-information-utility.948490/


    However the fix will most likely require troubleshooting steps, opening the computer and possibly replacing components, if that is something you are not comfortable with you may want to take it in for service at a local repair shop.
