So I did not find General/Help so I am posting under Minecraft/Help! Anyways I have this weird black "dead" pixels problem randomly appearing at random internals on my screen! Sometimes it doesnt happen for a week, motnh, sometiumes, it lasts for few hours, sometimes it lasts until next restart. What could be the problem? My PC is not that old, only 4 years old, ventilation is good, cleaning is regular (every 1 month) so what could cause this? Also its not overheating and AMD drivers are up to date.

restart your pc

check if your graphics or graphic card is having a problem

rightclick windows key, click Device manager, find Graphics (or just go through all drivers) and find any with yellow ! marks, if you find any update them, restart the pc and you should be good

His issue is on the computer itself, be that the monitor, graphics card or something in the drivers - not minecraft specifically, as noted at the start of the thread.

If the condition does not change when you move things around the screen (ie, the pixels are simply acting independently) then one possibility (though not my first guess) is that your monitor itself is buggered up. If that's true, a new monitor's the best diagnosis I can think of.

It could be your graphics card failing; if possible, a check to see if it happens with integrated graphics would help to get more data for the problem. It could be monitor, but with that kind of behavior, it may well be your graphics card having a real issue. A fast attempt at a bandaid solution would be to force a manual update/reinstall if it's up to date setup of the graphics card driver, and from there, see if the issue happens on your graphics card's display only, or if it happens across integrated graphics/another card (with appropriate drivers) as well.

I have only one GPU, what do I do than? Also as I mentioned its not constant, it just happens randomly and annoys the hell out of me. Monitors are brand new, tested on other PCs, no problems, same my PC with other monitors. I have no idea why is it happening. GPU from outside seems fine, no problems or anything.

is this monitor having special drivers or something like that? if yes try to update it maybe it's just outdated drivers or your graphic card is being broken and just shows this randomly

If the PC runs with other monitors, and the monitors are decent, it may be quickest and easiest just to use another monitor. If not, sounds like something that could be caused by driver issues, in which case I'd chose the option of updating/reinstalling the latest graphics card drivers to see if that will do anything.
