I have this weird problem that like started very recently. It started when I was playing Mafia 2, there were red dots on the screen scattered all over and red line at the left border of the screen

It persists with other games too. But as soon as i minimize the game, they all disapper.

I have G73SW, GTX 460m, i7.

I got it like 90 days ago. The problem is quite annoying.

What GPU clock settings are you using?

I would first update your video drivers to current beta or whql set. If it continues, then you will probably need to either roll back the OS with System Restore to a point where the system was stable. If that fails, then you need to RMA the card.

I updated the drivers and I haven't faced the problem yet. If the problem repeats, I will do the above things.

Thanks for the help.

I just checked the temperatures. And whenever its 65C or more, the red dots start appearing. How can i limit it?

Try turning off your hardware monitor first. They can sometimes cause issues during gameplay.

Can you please explain?

i think she means to shut down the program you use to monitor your temperature readings then play your game.
