Bad Screen Tearing with 7850.

post #1 of 12
Thread Starter 
Hi, I just built a new system using a HIS Radeon HD 7850 1GB version. I've noticed some really bad screen tearing/very large amounts of fuzzy lines across the screen on the games I've been playing, like Call of Duty WaW, Battlefield 3, and Starcraft 2. Now, in-game, I've been enabling V-Sync, but that doesn't completely fix the problem, and it really kind of destroys the frame rate. On my old build on the same monitor, I've been using a 6850 and there was no screen tearing at all. Is there an easy fix for this, or do i just have to live with it? On a quick google search, I found that some people found success from using a DVI cable instead of using a VGA cable and an adapter, which is what I use now. I am in the market for a new monitor, so buying a monitor with native DVI support wouldn't be too much of a problem, but I want to make sure that it will fix the problem. Here are my full system specs:

1366 x 768 monitor with 60Hz refresh rate

HIS Radeon HD 7850 1GB

Intel Core i3 2100

ASRock B75M-DGS

Corsair 8 GB 1333mhz ram

Western Digitial Caviar Blue 250GB hard drive

Corsair 500 Watt PSU

Thanks for the help!

How much higher are we talking here? I am looking at an HP 1600 x 900, would that suffice?

i would recommend 1080p, but whats your budget for a new monitor. and i have as well seen vga cords/inputs causing this sort of problem before, which was fixed by simply switching cable to dvi and nothing else. so it could just be a bad cable or i/o

Eh, I would want to spend probably not much more than $130. I know that isn't a lot for a good monitor, but I really can't afford to break the bank right now. I would be okay with trying DVI, if my monitor supported it.

Thank you fine sir, I appreciate the effort. One thing: I will need to purchase a DVI cable for this monitor, assuming that the core reason for the problem lies within the 7000 series cards not like analog signals.

how about this one, a little cheaper and is led backlit, plus i like the look, i actually have its big brother the 23" version and love it, mine did come with both dvi and vga cables, but in case this one doesnt, you saving a few bucks, and dvi cables are cheap

Thanks, I will definitely consider these options. However, are we sure that this will fix the problem?

you could try to find a different cable or different monitor/screen to test it with and see if it does the same thing, also maybe see if you can get a picture to show what it looks like, also uninstalling drivers and re-installing new 12.10 drivers. uninstall using this, it completly removes any sign of old amd software and drivers. also are you overclocked at all
