I recently purchased a Sony Vaio VPCEB2Z0E/BQ laptop and almost straight away I noticed, after completing the set up, that there is a problem when I try to watch videos using via the internet. When playing videos the image becomes temporarily distorted but then returns to normal, usually in less than a few seconds. However this cycle repeats continuously while watching videos and it seems to occur more frequently when watching videos at higher definitions, but even at standard def the problem still occurs.
I have played videos which are saved on my hard drive and they run just fine with no interuptions to the picture and I have used the hard ware diagnostic tool built in to the Vaio Recovery centre software suite to check the graphics card and have found a fault as one of the tests part of the 'video' diagnostic test failed. I also experience similar poor picture quality when watching DVDs on my laptop and have slightly different graphical bugs when playing games. I have inserted some screen shots, below, to show what I mean when I say the picture is distorted.
I have the most up to date graphics drivers for my laptop and flash version to my knowledge, but I don't know what do to to rectify the problem, if anyone could help it would be greatly appreciated.
BTW the screenshots of starcraft 2 are from a video, it is not me playing the game on my computer.
