    At times it has been reported that the monitor displays distortion, images appear wavy with horizontal lines, and videos showing frames at incorrect positions. It happens because of the wrong monitor refresh rate where the display driver is not able to put the frames on the screen properly. Then there are hardware limitation issues known […]

    sound distorted after windows 10 anniversary upgrade

    This is where I'm at on my HP laptop with Windows 10 and the Anniversary update.

    I completed step #3 "hardware and sound" but that took me to an option for "sound, speakers." There was no "properties" as step #4 suggests. I selected "sound, speakers" and then found "properties." After selecting "properties" there was no "enhancements
    tab" as step #5 suggests.

    Regardless, I then uninstalled the realtek audio driver. I noticed that when I did this without restarting my laptop that the sound was now tinny, but not distorted as it was previously. After restarting, the sound was again full, yet distorted.

    Realtek still shows in my programs list, though it shows no memory is used.

    Thanks for your continued help.

    Graphical artifacting/distortion

    Hi all,

    Since yesterday my computer has started having graphical issues. Here are some examples:


    Screen or images showing Artifacts or Distortion in Windows 10 [​IMG]


    As you can see there's lines going through text. There's also some fuzzy dots blinking in areas on the screen. Chrome had some issues as well but those appear to have been fixed by disabling hardware acceleration. The only thing that has changed recently is a Windows update. I'm currently running Win10 1909 but the hardware is pretty old.

    I've run the Windows memory diagnostic and a GPU diagnostic. Neither turned up any failures. I've run DISM/sfc and sfc doesn't find anything.

    Any ideas on a fix?

    What causes these odd font artifacts around numbers

    The artifacts you are seeing appear only with numbers, but that's a red herring. It's a screen artifact like any other screen artifact that sometimes affects a monitor. The problem is that these artifacts have a million causes, give or take.

    Presuming that you have a graphics driver that is supported on Windows 10, and that you have already tried restarting your computer, here are some fixes that have worked for others:

    • Refresh the screen (press F5.) You may have to do this 2 or 3 times.
    • Turn off ClearType.
    • Open Task Manager and End Task on Windows Explorer. That forces the Windows shell to restart.
