Windows 7: Screen Tearing with AMD/ATI Graphics

Well I had the same problem today. Updated graphics driver - custom install without CCC. Rebooted. Same issue. Then I had to delete color profiles:

Then re-calibrate display.

Problem fixed. Maybe it will work for you but it could also be that you have issues with your graphics card, cables or connectors.

Opps, This did help! Thanks, will work with this for a while and look at "Callender's" fix also.

Turned off Smooth Scrolling in Firefox and that worked also, but without it's unbearable, luckily I use Chrome for most things. Don't know if I'd ever buy AMD Stuff again. Hopefully someone is watching lol...not.

Still have to wonder why this would happen with this Vanilla install and not the OEM? Will look into it for sure.

Thanks for your expertise, Nasty7

Thanks so much Callender, this might be the ticket for me to get this low end laptop working good. After buying a new Samsung SSD I was pretty excited, but then this?

Just to be clear, I did not Update the Driver...Well...I did but then reverted to the OEM one, they both worked the same. I also did not do the "custom install" without the CCC, but am going to remove it or go to a newer driver then do it.

I don't think any wires are loose or that the graphics card has problems but will go there if needed. I am also going to install Linux next, that should tell me more. In fact...could run it from USB to test, but will be installing it anyway. Linux has some niggles with this Card also, but some work OOTB.

I thought I did all my homework before this install, but never foreseen this lol.

@Callender, I went into "Color Management" but there were no "IIC Profiles" so I chose "Calibrate Display" and set it up, unfortunately this did not work. I now have a profile showing, but don't know if it would help to remove it as it was just set. I'm confident that there is a way so won't give up, might even try a newer/newest Driver available.

Before I made this change went back and set Browsers to Default Settings, or basically reversed the Hardware Acceleration in Chrome and Smooth Scrolling in FF, to see if it worked with default settings.

I will need to look at the Garbage that Toshiba had installed to see if any of it would effect this problem.

Thanks again!
