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!

    • Moved my fan today  cut heat up time in half very noticeable improvement 
    • Well, she's still right, you know..
    • Went out pheasant hunting today and ran into a trapper setting 330s along a creek for beaver .  I'm not much into trapping but know how these things work, and after having a civilized conversation with him his were all in the water and he let know where they were located so at least the pooch wouldn't get his leg caught in it. don't feel bad, he hasn't caught much either . 
    • That may be, but it sounds a lot like "I didn't get a job" butthurt.  That grifter would be singing the praises of Trump's genius if she was on the payroll.   Eh, why not?  When they aren't taking credit for things they had nothing to do with, they are taking blame for things they had nothing to do with. Pence is still the governor of Indiana
    • sounds like from animals that eat meat. 
    • Huh?  Sorry,  I should have known better.
    • Great idea, have you looked into what it would take? 
    • I think what fish meant was it might not hurt to allow more than 60 days for a season in states like MN.   When the birds are late we can still have a chance at the northern birds.  If freeze up and the flights are early, the longer season won't matter.  There won't be much if anything to shoot.   I get what you're saying about lengthening the gap, but that's a roll of the dice since we have little chance of knowing when freeze up will get those late birds moving.  How long do you make the gap?   After a year in my new area of the state I can adjust my expectations and chase more wisely next year.  This year I was anticipating much better.  I think that's the worst part - the big push being the big let down.
    • Wool socks are a must, they insulate even if wet. Cotton socks in any warm boot will make your feet cold. The warmth of the boot while you are active make your feet sweat. I have the LaCross Iceman from a couple decades ago, still no need to go buy something different.
    • Some wild meat can have trichinosis.  Domestic pork no longer has it. I'm pretty sure that venison doesn't have a parasite issue.
