Screen showing marks when playing a full screen video

Answers :

If you get the problem on startup and externally then it's the GPU. You can fix it by reflowing the GPU on the motherboard, but it's NOT easy for the average user.

You might be able to find someone on Craigslist who can do it. I'd pay no more than $50 for someone to do it, but depending on where you live the price could be higher.

One thing you could try is to update the bios firmware. It's definately worth a shot.
