Windows 10: Screen Tearing Outside of Games
Screen Tearing Outside of Games
Lately my computer has been experience screen tearing when outside of games. Usually I experience this when I'm scrolling up and down on websites such as reddit and this only goes on for less than 10 minutes at a time after which it will just not occur anymore. Not sure what to think of this as when I play games, such as League of Legends or Black Desert Online, my performance will still be great.
My two leading suspicions would be either by video card (980TI), or my monitor (BenQ GW2255) is dying. It could possibly be Google Chrome being buggy, but I'm not too sure about this since I also experience the screen within Microsoft Edge.
Any help to find the problem and to solve it would be greatly appreciated.
New revelation - Screen tearing only occurs without a game / program (?) running in the background.
Also, I've used DDU to completely uninstall my Nvidia drivers and have installed the newest drivers available, but I am still experiencing the screen tearing only within browsers. Turning on Hardware Acceleration in Chrome does stop the screen tearing, but it also causes a ton of video errors when I watch live streams on twitch.tv, so that's not really a viable solution to my problem.
My son has a PC & whenever he plays full screen games. A noise comes from his tower like a high pitched static noise & flickering lines appear on the screen. As soon as he minimises the game, it stops.
He has a Q9300 CPU, 4gig DDR3 & a HD6770...
I recently bought the Dell Inspiron 7559 laptop with the following specs:
8 GB ram
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M 4GB GDDR5
I encountered a strange problem when playing a game (my laptop meets the system requirements)...
My windows 10 will go to a lock screen during games. Specifically, iRacing when using the wheel as my input. I have even disabled the lock screen, but it does not seem to have helped.
when I open any game i see black borders at the sides. I have Intel HD graphics display adapter and NVIDIA graphics driver installed on my laptop (everything is up to data). I tried many solutions but there is no "scale full screen" option in Intel...
so ever since i updated to windows ten ive had tearing, at first i hoped it would be fixed in an update but to awe.
