Computer screen is jittery

8 posts in this topic

Love my new home built computer, but I think I might have an issue with the graphics card.

My screen is jittery. Most noticeable on text, but does it on everything else too.

Any ideas?

Try setting the refresh rate to 70 or higher, 60 is conflicts with the cycles from the lights.

As said make sure your refresh rate is correct for the monitor. Also make sure the cable is fully connected on both the monitor and graphics card end. Also if the graphics card has dual outputs (ie both are DVI) make sure you are using the primary output.

It may also be artifacting due to high temperatures, which may happen these days as new graphics cards have default fan speeds too low for the amount of heat they put out. You can download RivaTuner and crank up the minimum fan speed from 30% to about 60% and cool that baby off (but the fan will also make quit a bit more noise if you do so).

Well, quick shakin' yer monitor!!

Refresh rate is good to check. Screw the cables tight. Might try reseating the card to see if that works as well.

You might not be running the monitor in its native resolution. Having the resolution set incorrectly can cause the graphics to appear jittery.

Yes, it was set at 60 so I changed it to 72 and it worked!

Thanks!

    • that is great!!!!   good for you guys!!!!
    • Your right rs_ld,  a full smoker is the way to go, leftovers can always be frozen and re heated..good eats.
    • 195 degrees on these butts. Like they say, if you are going to spend 9 hrs smoking 5# of meat, you just as well spend the same amount of time smoking 45#. The local grocery had these on sale so had a few friends take the offer to throw a roast on for them. Took two off early for slicing  Pulling the rest cost them each a beer though!
    • Very good stuff, kinda tasted like ribs with this recipe,  I'll keep at it til I find the right one!! Good luck moon lake!!
    • It will be interesting to see how the Warriors react in free agency.  Will they be able to keep the team together?  It seems like all these guys value winning above a paycheck so they might be willing to sign deals that will still allow the team flexibility to keep good role players around them.    
    • That's too bad.  The fish were ON FIRE up there.  I went out with my dad and uncle with our tiller walleye boat, and hardly a clue what we were doing, and we crushed them!  Ended up with 118 pounds of packaged salmon fillets.  I think I can honestly say it was the most fun fishing trip I've had in my life.  Here's my biggest of the trip, 25 pounds.    
    •   It's amazing to see a thoroughly talented team like Cleveland just get dissected like a back alley pick up team. I agree--GS will be THE team to beat for several more years if they keep their nucleus. I think we can make them sweat a little bit now, though, so that's pretty exciting for a change! 
    • dang I can see why anyone would slobber!!!!
    • Fletch's hands are totally tied by his own doing, keep in mind our 1st round pick this year was 15 games of Hanzal...definitley not worth it. Fletch needs to get off his duff and pull the trigger on a Scandella trade real soon for a decent Forward and not pass up an OK opportunity by "hoping" for the homerun and missing out on a good opportunity.  IMO our only hope is that other teams are "watered down" more than we are and that our vets can hang in there one more year.
    • Wondermous!!  Anytime, fivebucks! Years of workin' on that stuff does count for something!!!  I wish ya WOULDA bet me!!     Glad ya got 'er done!!!
