Screen distortion while high gpu usage

  andrija babogredac 10:34 12 Jul 2018

Every time i play games the screen starts to shake, but not the whole screen, is more like distorted waves that bring the image left-right. The place where the waves are is placed a bit off the actual image. The waves are tiny and i cant notice them usually but when i play a game its making my eyes hurt because they are bigger. I had this issue before because of the vga cable but now it is only when i have higher gpu usage. And surprisingly its at its worst at ~70% or ~50°C. I saw this issue while running Kombustor and Afterburner. Please help, my eyes are starting to hurt.

My specs:

System Model: MS-7721 Processor: AMD A8-7600 Radeon R7, 10 Compute Cores 4C+6G (4 CPUs), ~3.1GHz Memory: 8192MB RAM Available OS Memory: 7110MB RAM Page File: 3282MB used, 10936MB available System DPI Setting: 96 DPI (100 percent) DWM DPI Scaling: Disabled DxDiag Version: 6.01.7601.17514 64bit Unicode Card name: NVIDIA GeForce GT 740 DAC type: Integrated RAMDAC Display Memory: 4038 MB Dedicated Memory: 1990 MB Shared Memory: 2048 MB Current Mode: 1440 x 900 (32 bit) (75Hz) Monitor Model: ASUS VW193D-B Native Mode: 1440 x 900(p) (59.887Hz) Output Type: HD15

This is commonly known as screen tearing if you have vsync off turn it on. I don't wish to offend you but by todays standards your card is quiet old , I would recommend you turn all g card setting as low as possible and then increase each setting gradually until you detect a problem , lets face it , unless you have bionic eyes you probably wont notice the effects of knocking the settings down a few notches.
