I have a Y410p with a GT 755m video card in it. For some reason when I go into arma 3 this happens:

(Before you give me crap for taking the pic with my phone when i use prt screen it gives me just a black screen lol)

I've tried using hte latest nvidia drivers to no avail, so then i went back to factory settings and used only the drivers provided by the Lenovo website to no avail either. I have everything else updated, and the only drastic change i've made to the computer is probably updating it to windows 8.1 from windows 8.

I'm pretty sure its not a hardware problem as league of legends used to have this problem, but after sticking to only the Lenovo provided drivers, the problem went away. Any and all help would be greatly appreciated.


EDIT: Now league of legends looks kind of like that too now.
 


I'm afraid so. :( If it's a card you can remove, you can try to repair it yourself; a lot of people attempt the baking method as a way to reflow video cards or motherboards. Whether the graphics chip is on a removable MXM card or is mounted to the main board, though, this method requires some work, a lot of care, and some luck, as it may not fix the problem.

If it's within warranty, you can contact Lenovo and have an RMA set up so that they can take care of it for you. If it's not, however, you're looking at either replacement or repair of the video card or motherboard.

The only other thing you can try is replace your RAM, though I highly doubt that will fix those artifacts.
