Any ideas or suggestions maybe?
U say overloaded Chrome and AMD CPU, but this CPU and Chrome have been working perfect for the last 2 years. This is a recent problem. Overloaded Chrome? All u see is a bunch of "Bookmarks", i have 1 extension (ad-block) and that's it! Problem is also present, when i use a freshly installed Chrome, without logging in, so without extensions or bookmarks. Right click menu (context menu) is laggy/glitchy and vertically/diagonally tearing!

Something has changed! I upgraded to windows 10 like 3 weeks ago.
I then started noticing this problem, tried to find a solution for it, but could not find it. Then i decided to do a clean install of Windows 7, and this problem is still present.

Anyway's, thx for answering i guess, lol.

Hi,
Yea Chrome is getting more and more of a resource hog and I doubt you can compare it from 2 years ago,

I personally didn't notice any tearing as you describe I only noticed selecting was not as fast as you were pointing at the menus with your mouse which was so fast I lost sight of the issue :/

Not sure what a clean install of 7 would do coming from 10 either if the drive was properly cleaned besides all of the win-10 preparation updates would still be offered to the clean install = did you load all of them again ?

I did a "normal" format, in the windows 7 install wizard where u select the drive to install windows on (after booting it from a USB stick) i deleted the separate partitions, recreated the drive and then formatted it.

Then installed Windows 7. Everything is fine until i install the Graphics driver either true windows update, or via a downloaded version straight from Nvidia.

Then on the next boot i get this error


As soon as Service pack 1 is installed this stops from happening, then i don't get that pop-up anymore. But then the problem as i described appears and is annoying. Didn't have this before (i updated to windows 10)!

Do you think doing a low lvl format or secure erase would help? To get rid of any (hidden) files still remaining?
My primary harddrive is a (Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB).

Bazar
You could try accessing cmd during the install and use clean
Disk - Clean and Clean All with Diskpart Command

I can imagine what 10 would have done to mess things up so badly or where it's messed up ? bios ? cpu ?...
Heck also use this in cmd

I have reinstalled windows 10 and the problem is still there!
If this was a hardware problem,where should i be looking.

I can still play my 3D games Such as Battlefield 3 - 4, Assetto Corsa (Sim Race), the speed of the computer is not affected. Just the 2D performance of the OS in my opinion. Also Steam shows this behavior, going true the menu's with the mouse i also get this weird tearing, but in steam it is even MORE visible!

This is driving me crazy!

The hardware i'm using:

Gigabyte GA-990FXA-UD3
16Gb Corsair vengeance 1600Mhz
AMD FX-8350
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 (Gigabyte wind-force)
SSD - Samsung SSD 840 EVO 250GB
HDD - WDC WD10EAVS-00D7B1
Logitech G500s Gaming mouse
Samsung Syncmaster T24HD @ 1920x1200

Hi PuffPuffPass, welcome to 7F!

You were astute enough to track down video's that describe your problem, you just didn't take it one step further. Solutions to tearing, screen tearing or as I would describe it unsynchronized refresh rates can be found at:

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Screen_tearing

Since you list a nvidia (N) card in your system specs:

https://NVIDIA Vysync | www.google.com/search

https://screen tearing fix nvidia | www.google.com/search

https://nvidia screen tearing windows 7 | www.google.com/search

https://nvidia screen tearing windows 10 | www.google.com/search

https://nvidia screen tearing desktop | www.google.com/search


You mentioned Steam to help play your games, Steam can contribute to tearing, if your fps is way out of proportion to your display rate.
  • Make sure everything is up to date with hardware and programs including the OS.
  • I would suggest resetting your video card, and your bios back to defaults, If you are overclocking; Stop and reset!, then test.
  • If there is no improvement uninstall Steam and test.
  • If still no improvement you will have to experiment with older N drivers, if you already have the latest.
  • You may want to consider a bios update.
