    flickering and wavy lines up and down screen.

    hi guys,

    my card is a msi 560 1GB and recently my screen has developed a very flickery screen and wavy lines moving up and down screen when i am in games (when GPU being used)

    in desktop and not playing games it is totally fine.

    my refresh rate in my games and my monitor has not changed, i have reseated my graphics card several times to make sure, my screen is totally fine, have checked with others, does the same thing

    so now i am stumped at what it can be unless the card is dead.

    any ideas?

    thank you in advance,
    Alastair

    Re: flickering and wavy lines up and down screen.

    Could be a few things, a fault with the card or a fault with the psu being the most probable.
    What psu have you got? what's the rest of your system?
    Have you been overclocking it? if so reset the card to the factory settings and see if it's still happening.
    What are your temperatures like? could be overheat damage.

    Had you recently updated your drivers before this problem? latest does not always mean best

    sounds like the vrms are becoming a bit unstable try and bring the memory clock down a bit.
