https://photos.app.goo.gl/xq9sfD0yFdrdTGV43 This just happened.

 

I was sitting in front of my computer doing some marking when the screen and sound went crazy.

 

I powered it off and restarted and seems to be working fine?

It happens. Might be a sign of impending gpu failure, or nothing at all, or something in between.

That's your computer saying its time to do a backup. :)





Life is too short to remove USB safely.

A backup that doesn't overwrite any earlier data, in case there's corruption already. An incremental backup, for example.

I had an extremely similar problem (except the screen flashed full screen colours for about 30 seconds before a system freeze took hold) after KB4051963 installed on Saturday. I rolled the security update back and the problem has gone away.
