View Full Version : Wavy line across screen

05-07-07, 08:20 AM
I have a new 8800gts video card and I noticed when I play the game "Pray" or any other opengl game I get a line "looks more like a wave" from the left side of the screen to the right, it starts at the bottom and goes to the top of my monitor then starts all over again. Does anyone know what causes this? It dosen't do it in direct 3d games though.

Refresh rate?

Im not sure what your saying.

Does it go from left to right or bottom to top?

Could it be vsynch? Try turning it on.

Thx for reply, It is one line that goes from left to right from bottom of screen and moves up to top of screen then starts all over again. I run "prey" on my 19 inch flat panel monitor at 1280x1024 75mz vertical syn is off.

It could be screen tearing. I find it very prominent in Prey myself.

Try turning vsync on and see if that helps.

If not, can you get a screen shot?
