Windows 7: Horizontal screen tearing when viewing anything full screen.

Horizontal screen tearing when viewing anything full screen.

Hi there, sorry if this in the wrong place. I couldn't see a forum that looked better suited for this.

HP dv7-7063ea: Buy HP DV7-7063EA Laptop, Beats Edition, Intel Core i7, 2.5GHz, 8GB RAM, 2TB with 17.3" Display online at JohnLewis.com

No matter what I'm viewing, be it a video on youtube/dailymotion/vimeo/wherever or anything on VLC, the second I go full screen I notice horizontal screen tearing across the entire screen. I managed to lessen it to an extent on VLC by switching to directx output, but it still pops up on youtube videos etc.

EDIT: Have also just started to notice it on non full screen videos ._.

If it makes a difference it's around 2/3 of the way up the screen on online vids and 90% of the way up on VLC.

I know this problem is going to be hard to pinpoint since it could be any number of things, but I have the feeling this is all because I have a setting too high/low somewhere. Besides Vsync etc are there any settings that are known to cause or solve this? It really is a major annoyance.

I have indeed downloaded all the latest drivers. I'd be a lot more content with it if it weren't for the multitude of problems it's brought with it ._.

Managed to solve this temporarily by switching to the default Aero theme. Hoping to fix it with the standard theme since I don't personally like Aero.
