comment Display problem - Random grid appears on screen
Hi @terdon. The issue was never resolved - I have since got a new laptop and issue never appeared again. I assume it must have been an issue with the drivers and/or old/faulty graphics card. At the time, I have tried different versions of graphic drivers but none fixed it. I think this question doesn't add any value to SE and could be removed :)

Thanks for your response - I haven't ever solved the problem and in fact I still have that PC sitting untouched in my room somewhere. I'll upgrade it (surely 3 years worth of updates is not gonna cause any problems) and see if the problem still exists :)
