Exactly the same thing is happening to me! What graphic card do you have?

To solve your problem we need dxdiag and files from this folder: "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\"

Can you pack the files in winrar and upload it somewhere please?
When the *.rar will be smaller than 2.097k, you can attach it here. Thank you.

When reporting please refer to "How to guide"

So i packed DxDiag + the mentioned folder "C:\Users\<Name>\AppData\Local\DayZ\"

here is link

Hope it helps to resolve the issue.

I had this issue, then I realized I was accidently alt-tabbing to the desktop. Changing the inventory key to a different key resolved it for me.

It got something to do with video settings. Since i changed everything in video options to LOW the problem does not happen anymore.
