Grainy VScode Window

I’m not sure if this is a problem with my computer or a problem with VScode, but for some reason everything is appearing super grainy like this.


Is this possibly a driver issue? I can’t find any similar problems on any other forums.

Looks like either a VSCode issue, a monitor issue, or a GPU issue. Either way, try restarting VSCode. If that doesn’t work, restart your computer.

I’ve tired doing both, and unfortunately neither fixed it.

Try uninstalling custom themes

your gpu is glitching, this happens a lot to me. Either restart vscode or trying resizing the window.

I looked around some more, and it appears it’s not just limited to VScode. Wallpaper Engine is doing the same thing, just 10x worse.


I’ll contact Nvidia support and see what I can do. Thanks for the suggestions.

I think your GPU gave up. Check if it is being cooled, or if it is extremely hot. Mine has done this before, I just turned it off and came back after a little bit and it worked perfectly.
