What causes hair to look like this?

There's constant dots all over my hair.. it looks worse than in the pic.  It's like static that just blinks all over my hair.  I thought it my be a graphics card problem or somethng. It did this on my last pc which was a decent pc and now this pc is a beast and it still does it.


How do I get rid of that?




EDIT:  No its not voice, Ive been around SL awhile now.. and kind of feel insulted that you would even say that lol  look at the hair itself.  not the big white dot. butt he little dots ON THE HAIR!


**My graphics card is high end and was $400 or so. 16 gigs of RAM.   I can play on fully maxed out settings so I know this isnt a graphics card issue

Does this happen with all hair or just this hair?

It's not your hair, DJ, it shows you have voice enabled. :smileyhappy:

Voice dots

Voice-enabled avatars have white "voice dots" floating above their heads (including your own).

I'm not sure any of this will help with your specific problem, but:

1.  Decrease your bandwidth.  3000 is way too high.  You should not set it over 1500 (even though you CAN, it will do more harm than good.)

2.  Decrease your draw distance.  424 is very high, and could be working your poor graphics card to death.  Try 250 or so.

3.  Do you have Lighting and Shadows enabled?  Turn it off.  Possibly the "static" is some sort of shadowing artifact or inaccuracy.  If you have other advanced graphics features on, like depth of field, or ambient occlusion, try turning them off to see if it helps.

4.  Toggle Basic Shaders off, then on.

5.  Try toggling HTTP textures off...if no help, switch 'em back on again.
