    What is a graphics failure? I know you'll tell me that i should search the net.

    But i want to ask whether a graphics failure is something that you see weird things in your screen(colours and stuff that you can't see anything) or can someone have a smaller failure like see weird things when you scroll down?

    Thanks a lot!

    Well, a graphics failure is where the graphics card is no more then junk...
    But, if you start seeing anomalies in the screen, that means your'e graphics card is overheating, and on its way to failure if you dont do something about it

    Well the abnormality i see is in this page.

    When i scroll down the thing at the right and left of the page doesn't scroll down normally. It's like they appear a little bit of white squares but when i stop scrolling they disappear. Not quite white but like the same colour as the background, only a little bit white.

    Is this the beginning of my graphics failure?
