    Diagonal Screen Tearing


    Over the past month or so, while watching videos or scrolling through web pages, i noticed that there was some diagonal screen tearing (Top Left to Bottom Right). I have no idea how this has happened and i can't stop looking at it. Is there any way to fix this? It happens in chrome and firefox.

    :)

    So before we start, this is not regular screen tearing, it's diagonal.
    Skip to the end for my question
    . Please see the following picture if you don't know what Diagonal screen tearing is:

    The issue:

    (i) Only occurs when a mobile Nvidia GPU to process applications (does not occur when using an Intel GPU)

    (ii) Occurs mostly on the internal screen though it can also affect external displays.

    (iiI) Only occurs in applications that use the Directx 9, OpenGL, or Vulkun APIs. So far no issues with DX1-8 & 10-12.

    (iv) It does not matter if the application is rendering in fullscreen or windowed mode.

    (v) Nor does vsync matter.

    Affects mobile Nvidia GPU from the 800 series and up.

    Nvidia Forums topics on the issue:

    1 - Diagonal Screen Tearing Issues on GTX 860M/870M/960M/965M/970M/980M...

    2 - Strange screen tearing in DirectX windowed mode on GTX 970M & GTX 870M

    There are many different reports of Diagonal Screen Tearing on Google. I'm not going to list them all, but they are there for your viewing pleasure.

    Support response:

    MSI support has stated that it is an issue with Windows, while Nvidia only say that they know about it and are working on a fix. Other than avoiding the conditions outlined above the best you can, it is NOT fixable by the user. Rather only work arounds exist
    which can, and most likely will, limit functionally in some way, shape or form.

    The question: It's been over a year since the issue of diagonal screen tearing was first reported, and yet it still hasn't been fixed. Is this issue even acknowledged by Microsoft? Or have MSI, Nvidia and possibly other manufacturers been
    lying about this?

    Funny, this doesn't just affect games. What's the point of putting in Gaming on Windows 10 then?

    AkiranoEri, sadly that doesn't fix the problem for most games. In fact, fallout 3 itself never had diagonal screen tear for me.
