HELP: Horizontal Tearing in Games

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
I am getting tearing in almost all of my games. I am running a single GTX 460 SC at 810 Mhz and at 1920x1080 resolution. I haven't noticed any tearing on L4D2 and even Witcher 2 set on high spec.

But I do notice tearing on Crysis 2 and even a simpler game such as Thrine. Usually about 1/3 from top of screen.

I have the latest 275.33 drivers, which included the most recent PhysiX pack and I have tried both V-Sync forced through the Nvidia tool and then application specific and turning the V-Sync on/off in-game. Nothing seems to fix.

Please help!

EDIT: Also, temps never top 50 C on the GPU and 40 C on the CPUs, and no stuttering or other graphical issues, and no slow downs. Just the tear. I also don't see it on videos being played which makes me think its the 3d graphics, not the connectors on the back of the pc/monitor.

I have noticed it on other games, such as the original Crysis, Far Cry 2 and cut scenes in Half Life 2. But yet Witcher 2 seems to run just fine... seems strange.

I had that problem untill i uninstalled all the nvidia drivers, went to safe mode and cleaned the drivers with driversweeper and installed the latest nvidia drivers.

Could you outline the steps for me?

Just boot into safe, wipe, reboot, download latest 275.33?

Seems simple, I'll give that a try. Is there any reason why the old drivers even existing is causing this problem?

Download DriverSweeper and nVidia's latest (from their website only).
Reboot, mash F8 after POST, boot to Safe Mode.
Run DriverSweeper, select nVidia PhysX and Display Drivers (if you've had any ATi cards previously, select them too), and clean.
Reboot normally, install the 275.33's as soon as you can physically do anything.

To be honest, nVidia's latest Drivers are supposed to have a "clean install" option or something, in which it apparently cleans out the older Drivers.
I still use this "old fashioned" method though.

I also once left a few Drivers "ontop" of eachother, ended up having over 3GB listed in nVidia Display Drivers in Programs & Features.
Games ran smoother after that, needless to say. 8)

Thank you both. I wiped out about 3 GB of old drivers and am running solely on 275.33, will report back.

usually can fix tearing by implementing tripple buffering and v sync

I know, and weird things is I have only had this graphics card for a couple of months... I don't know. Maybe it erased some other gunk too. I was just going off of my rainmeter stat.

Welp, tears are still there in Trine. Will try Crysis 2 in a bit and see.

Since you reinstalled make sure Vsync is set to ON in the Nvidia Control Panel, just to rule that out.
