when watching clips with movement or moving windows on windows somewhere else I get the "tearing effect" on my monitor. Meaning I see vertical lines while movement on my monitors, mainly in the middle. I do not see this line in PP CC 2014.
I am running the following hardware:
EVGA GTX 970 FTW Acx 2.0
Monitor 1: EIZO FS 2333, 60 Hz, HDMI
Monitor 2: quite old Acer on 1.600 x 1200, 60 Hz, DVI
Windows 7 professional 64 bit
latest Nvidia drivers
latest version of PP CC 2014
latest version of EVGA Precision X 16
I've heard about a view possible solution:
- activation V-Sync on Nvidia drivers (problem is monitor and graphic card are waiting for each other, monitor Hz will be downgraded)
- lowering Hz value under windows for monitors
- updating drivers (I did)
- Installing latest directX drivers? Do I need this?
I am wondering if the GTX 970 is to fast my old Acer monitor? Maybe the EIZO can handle 60 Hz, the Acer not? Can that be a problem?
My GTX is slightly overclocked, nevertheless that problem has been there before OC.
Are there any windows setting, windows service settings, to fix this? Any specific BIOS or Nvidia settings required?
I'd really appreciate your help and experience.
Always update the Direct X since many players can use that as an API especially WMP. What happens when you disable Vsync?
Thx for reply.
I've tried all options. Having Vsync "adaptive" / on does slight help but not at all. Also did update DirectX, no success.
My GTX 970 come up with good results, can it still be a defect? Both monitors can manage 60 Hz, so that can't be a problem.
I will reinstall windows on the weekend, and see it that helps.
If the card was defective then you would see the issue regardless of whether in Adobe or just playing in a media player and both monitors would show it. What happens if you set the Acer to 59hz?
