Peek did not capture the problem so I'll try my best to describe it. Every time something changes on the screen I get glitchy artifacts for a few seconds before it either resolves itself or something else changes and the multi-colored blocks appear elsewhere.

The solution

Sounds like a graphical driver issue.

Google your brand of computer and put Arch Linux behind it.

You will not be alone.
Learn, have fun and enjoy.
But first use the power of the Arch Wiki
use the tutorials on https://www.youtube.com/erikdubois
then use the power of google
then use the power of our moderators.
