By automatic, do you mean with Windows Update or from Nvidia and Realtek. and either or, if you are installing on top of the old ones, therein may lie your problem.

If its not to much to ask... can you tell us what exactly you do to install these updates

In my HDTV I can't see anything wrong with those images but then again, I may not be getting the full pictue.

Have you given Boozad's suggestion a try???

You might also check your video card drivers and/or the video settings as well, to include making sure v-sync is turned on.

How would I verify the cache?
The updates come from nvidiA and install s it self
Have not tried the vsync. But all drivers are up to date

If it's the only game it's happening on I'd suggest uninstalling and reinstalling it. Steam games normally have cloud-based backups so your saved game data should be OK as it will re-sync upon re-installation.
Also how do you keep your drivers up to date? Manually?

What other games do you play? If there's nothing else as strenuous as FEAR 2 then it may point to AstaLaVista being right about your card not being up to the task.

As far as I can tell, Nvidia sends a PopUp advising of a new update, he gets it and install on top of the old drivers... not 100% sure but, by not uninstalling the old drivers, he may have some remnants of old drivers corrupting the new ones causing havoc in his registry.

I have seen this happening on some occasions, more so when you don't uninstall PhysX before installing the new one.

Aside from uninstalling and reinstalling the game, I would also make sure to try this from now on...

Or follow this one as well... do the same with PhysX drivers
