Windows 7: GFX Issue with glitch when video playback during video gaming

GFX Issue with glitch when video playback during video gaming

I have a question for the gurus here.

I notice with video playback that it gets a little choppy, like a line that forms across the middle of the screen and breaks up the video. It seems to only happen in 'higher intensity' video playback, but I don't know that for sure. I'm fairly certain that I have the most updated drivers from ATI, but will check for sure when I get home. What else could this be? Do I just need more power? The gfx card is a few years old now. Originally I thought it was my monitor, but I have since replaced it and the problem persists.

Have you gave your case a good cleaning lately, sounds more like a temp effect than power.

First of all I would check your driver's first to see if you have the latest one. Is it any program you use or just the one?

I would also get the driver from Dell for your monitor. Another thing to try, try a different monitor cable.

it has happened across two monitors (a samsung, and now my dell) and various cables, and happens across a few different games. not usually during game play, but during the video cut scenes

i'll check on the drivers and report back

Hello Dirtyelf.

Your videos are suffering from something called screen tearing.

May I know which media player you use to play your vids and also tell me if you have aero theme enabled or not?

i do have aero theme enabled, and the tearing happens during cut scenes from video games such as star craft 2 or the intro movie of sim city, and when i play videos i usually use WMP

I have driver version 9.12.0.0, which i think is the most updated version.

AMD Catalyst

and my monitor driver is up to date


possibly related to this? (currently enabled)


Enabling ITC Processing for DTVs
ITC processing is a feature that enables display processors to use the appropriate pixel data processing algorithms based on specific content type to ensure video quality.

With ITC processing, the graphics driver enables the display to use its own video quality processing algorithms for movies played in full-screen mode on HDMI™ displays.

Note: This feature is available only for DTVs connected with HDMI cables and may not be available for all systems.
From the Graphics Settings tree, expand DTV.
Click Attributes.
Select or clear Enable ITC Processing as appropriate.
Select—Enables ITC processing for HDMI displays that are capable of the feature. When movies are played in full-screen mode, the display’s processors can be used to ensure video quality.
Clear—Disables ITC processing. Video quality is ensured by the graphics driver for all types of conte

Try switching on and off ITC and see if it helps. Anyway, did you install any codec pack? Also try Media Player Classic - Home Cinema to play your videos.
