    Monitor sometimes shows a line of stuck blue pixels in the middle

      My monitor sometimes shows a line of stuck blue pixels in the middle of the screen.

      It happened yesterday but only for 2 hours and i couldn't test it with another monitor at that time. Now it is not happening but i will still need to test it with another monitor.

      As this isn't occurring 24/7, i think it may have something to do with the GPU's memory rather than the monitor itself (had something similar happen with my 970) but i am not sure. I haven't overclocked any part of my system.


      What i have tried and know so far:

      1) When plugging in the DP cable into other DP slots on the GPU it still occurs

      2) When using DVI the problem does not appear

      3) I think it appeared when i started playing some CS:GO

      4) It ONLY shows in windows (not in BIOS or start-up phase)

      5) It takes a day to go away (with the PC switched off) but i don't know what exactly makes it go away.

      Should i just go return the AOC and hope that solves it?


      PS I have attached a picture of the blue line
