I have a Acer Predator Triton 500 PT515-52 and for the life of me I can't find an email for Acer to get help so I thought I'd ask here. I've had no real problems with my Acer except sometimes my display will go horror movie "This is just a test" old school tv screens. If anyone has any idea what is going on or if you believe I need to send my laptop in please let me know!

Edit: I should probably mention this is not the first time I have seen this happen but is the first time it happened to such a degree. I'd say normally it breaks? around on screen options like moving through a websites tabs but this one obviously caught my attention I'll make sure to take more pictures assuming it continues!

    Looks like a foobard GPU, the fact the start bar is fine is a tad odd though. You could try a full removal of the graphics drivers, then reinstalling the latest stable drivers.

    As for the support it depends where you are based, if in the UK a quick link:
    https://customercare.acer-euro.com/customerselfservice/CaseBooking.aspx?CID=UK&LID=ENG&OP=1

    Or from the acer site, its under fix my acer :)

    No, it does it with whatever is on my screen so discord will go too but once I wave my mouse over it it vanishes.

    If your predator sense supports only use GPU you could try that to see if that helps / hinders, but if its across many things it suggests tis a hardware thing :(
