Re-install your driver(VGA) and see if it helps.

Go to NVIDIA's website and download the latest drivers.

Use driver sweeper to remove all the drivers in safe mode and then reinstall the drivers.Make sure you have the correct drivers( if you have 64-bit windows, you must install the 64- bit drivers)

Core clock should be at 700 MHz, Shader clock is supposed to be at 1400 MHz.

Yes Nvidia employs different core and shader clocks.Shader clocks are 2x that of core clock.

i looked at the precision app but the core cloack thing wont go down to 700 just 1100, i just dont know how installing that app is causing problems and i didnt even touch anything in it.. maybe its a power issue idk im confussed lol

Do you know what tearing is? Do you know what it looks like? Is it possible to post a screen shot of your "lines"

Sounds like you need to enable V-Sync.

Enable V-Sync in a game that you know has this problem, see if it goes away.

yes i do now know what tearing looks like by disabling vsync thats exactly what is was looking like but when it is enabled its not near as bad, seems to have helped with downloading the newer drivers but i now have a few lines across the screen that i see from certain angles or shades in the game these lines no longer flicker like tearing but they are there. any advice ty
