So recently my computer has been having this weird graphics problem, it's only on google chrome that I've noticed it happening. It's a few different things but mostly just this green and red coloured gradient, that is in like a tiled pattern, and it covers up the webpage. I have no idea what this is or how to fix it, and this computer is only about 3 months old so if it's the graphics card (or whatever it's called) would it come under warranty?

Yes in all likelihood a hardware fault will be covered under warranty, but it seems unlikely to be a hardware issue if it only occurs in one app. Is your Chrome up to date? Perhaps try to download it again.
Do you have extensions etc installed in Chrome? Perhaps try from a different user account.

Not familiar with Chrome but does it have an option to turn hardware rendering on or off?  As in, the opposite setting to the one you have the problems with?
