Windows 7: Strange Screen Tear Problem/Bug?

Strange Screen Tear Problem/Bug?

So recently I came across this strange bug with my computer, basically the screen splits across the monitor as if it were extending across another monitor (images to help show what I mean below)

This first started when I was playing Battlefield 4, the screen tore and then my system promptly crashed and restarted. This again happened when i logged back in, so I used system restore and went back before installing BF4. So far this has prevented it from happening again, but is anyone aware what has caused this? I would like to prevent it from happening again.

*Also to note, when I tried using snipping tool to take a screen cap, the tearing got worse so I had to stop and physically use a camera to take a picture

Have you tried uninstalling and reinstalling your graphics drivers?

Yes the problem occurred with AMd catalyst 13.10, which I then updated to 13.12. It's happened again one more time, very shortly, and then disappeared.

Lol, not exactly; but the first picture does show the screen tear on the left side; basically makes it look like its been pushed kinda like a pac man style
