HELP! Translucent lines on monitor when gaming.

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

When I play certain games (not all but most) I see horizontal translucent lines moving from top to bottom of the screen. Vsync reduces the amount of these lines but doesnt eliviate the issue entirely. I also have triple buffering enabled in the nvidia control panel. Does anyone know how/if I can fix this issue?

system specs:

R5 2600

GTX 1070

16gb DDR4 3000

600W Silverstone PSU

960gb Intel SSD 6 (NVME)

BIOS Version F50 (Latest)

Windows 10 (64-bit)

Using a fairly old VGA monitor as a stand in before I can buy a new one.

Have you tried connecting the gpu to a tv using the hdmi or displayport?

Very possible it could be the monitor, if it's older and you're using VGA with an adapter. I'd try it on a newer monitor or flat screen TV using HDMI and seeing if it still has the problem.

If you ask for a Mid Tower case recommend, I will 90% of the time recommend the Fractal Design Meshify C or S2.

Yeah tried it on a TV and the problem didnt persist. Assuming its either a vga problem or the monitor. Thanks for your help, do you know of any fixes besides buying a new monitor?

Only problem with that being that it only happens when running certain games (system wide) and never happens with no games running which is odd. for example with COD Warzone running the problem persists but when running minecraft it's nowhere to be seen.

Then it could be an nvidia driver issue.
