Solved Glitches, windows changing shapes.

Specs: Windows 10
Hi, I was playing some games yesterday and out of nowhere my Windows started doing very strange things - Screen tearing, shaking, letters changing shape and colours and it happenes mostly whenever I DO something like typing one letter, moving windows or just mousing over a window.

There is no problem while in bios or watching videos. Done format twice in the mean time and didn't help.

Removed GPU, RAM and connected again and also didn't help.

After formatting there were a lot of bluescreens every few seconds/minutes.
APC Index Mismatch, dxgmms2.sys, irql not less or equal, system thread exception not handled, Driver overran stack buffer, Kernel security check failure and more.

Fixed bluescreens with a random free software able to detect and download missing drivers. (atleast for now)

Uploaded few photos and videos I was able to do with my phone.

Your problem is that the 4690K was release a lot later than the Z87 motherboard and the Z97 would have been a better choice. Download the latest BIOS Flash Update and install that. I have a Z97 motherboard, early version (v1.0) and had to install the latest BIOS to support both the CPU and the latest graphics engine (GTX950Ti was mine). Please note that BIOS flashing is always risky but in this case necessary and you should take the proper precautions (I prefer using a UPS (battery back up) to help prevent failures). If you have not done them before, read your manual carefully and Google for additional tips.

Second point, Never use any site for your drivers except for the actual component manufactures web site and NVidia for your graphics driver to be sure that you do get the proper drivers.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Do you see the same artifacting from screenshots or recorded movies? (Win10 has a screen recording app now: http://winsupersite.com/windows-10/...

If not, it's either the monitor or (less likely) the cable to the monitor. Otherwise, the RAM, CPU or MB is probably bad, with the primary concern being the MB.

Just swapped my moba and cpu to the old ones and problems are gone thank you - atleast found the problem.

But is there any way to easily fix my faulty moba? Everything was working fine with exception of this glitches after few days.

Not unless you have a failed surface mounted component you've successfully identified as the failure, the required hot air solder equipment, and a replacement part. Chances are it's either the CPU, or the PCH if your board has one.

I'd focus on the CPU first, and Intel does have a CPU testing program you can use to verify. https://downloadcenter.intel.com/do...
