What's going on with my computer? (The computer help thread)
Go to Super User first!This is the general purpose "help!" thread for all those computer related problems. Note that my problem has been solved and can be ignored.
I need help, I don't know what's going on.
First of all, my computer was fine until today. I just came back from holiday, and I haven't touched my computer for a week.
I started gmod, and everyone that OK until I joined a server. Once I joined, I moved about for about 15 seconds, typing stuff and looking around. Then it happened. Suddenly, there was full on 255 green in certain parts of the game, and it was frozen. The screen refreshed every 5-10 seconds which didn't really help much because everything was going all weird. I closed the game through the task manager and restarted my computer.
The same thing happened again when I rebooted and started the game. Everything was going very strange, and I took an 8 minute video of it but I don't know if I can upload it.
When I closed the game process through the task manager, I was browsing around on the internet, catching up on my blogs. Then I noticed a subtle shift from white to pink, just momentarily. I focused on some random white space, and I saw my monitor again shift from white to pink, then back to white. Then, it shifted rapidly to a very strong pink, there were some strange patterns, and my computer froze again. I shut it off because now I think my hardware is damaged in some way.
What is causing this? I don't want to turn on my computer again in case something is about to short-circuit/blow up/ some random cool thing involving destruction. This hasn't happened until now, after a 1 week break in which I didn't use my computer.
