    Red Pixels Flashing (help)

    by robjobkabob ·

    Hello, I have had a problem recently of red pixels flashing on my monitor randomly but consistently. They are not very noticable on brighter pages/applications, but are incredibly annoying when there is black or any dark colors covering a portion of my screen. It happened a while ago, and fixed when I swapped out my HDMI cable, but recently after cleaning out my PC, which involved uninstalling and reinstalling my graphics card, they were back. I updated my drivers, gone, then yesterday I plugged in a DVI to HDMI adapter for VR into my PC’s DVI port and the pixels are back even after unplugging that. It is not a problem of my monitor, because if there is no input, the monitor’s black built-in screens and menus do not have these flashing pixels. In addition, the first HDMI cable this happened to was used with a Playstation 4 and a TV, and still had the pixels. So from what I can tell, it is a problem of HDMI cables, but somehow they only break/get these pixels when plugged into my PC. Is it possible that my GPU is burning or somehow destroying cables? I have a 4GB Radeon RX 580 and a 1920×1080 165hz 1ms MSI monitor. I have swapped out at least 4 different cables when this is happening, and they all get the pixels (although not all permanently like the one used for that PS4). I really am stumped on what is even causing this problem, nevermind how to fix it. Any input is appreciated.

      I feel like a moron, it probably has something to do with my port, or the original broken cable doing something to the port, but if pushed in very hard and held there, all HDMIs except for the original one work perfectly.
