Sorry if this is in the wrong forum, wasn't sure where to put it,

Ok here is what is happening, kinda looks like the old tvs white snow/noise. I only notice this happen when i switch users on windows 10 or sometimes when it goes to the user screen on bootup and its not every time, at first i thought it was my hdmi cable but i bought a new one and still happens. I am using integrated graphics right now(intel 4000 i think) as my gpu died on me, anyway, anyone got any ideas? It is usually fixed by unplugging and replugging in the hdmi cable from the monitor
Snow/white dots on the screem is a sure indicator your video source is going out. Have you tried reinstalling video drivers? I suggest getting a new GPU or you'll be blacked out.

Check for your onboard video drivers here .

I do plan to get a new GPU soon, finances are tight atm, in the mean time, could it simply be drivers like you say? i mean other cause would mean issue with motherboarD ?
