Hi, I just recently put together a computer, sorta like a budget gaming rig, and I've been having some problems, such as the screen wrapping around to the other side of the monitor and some sort of horizontal thrashing/static when I try to play games or watch videos. I've tried messing around with V-Sync, and that has only served to reduce the frequency of it occurring while gaming. Any serious suggestions would be appreciated.

Can you list the spec's of your computer? Can you describe what the picture is supposed to be and what it is supposed to look like normally.

This is a picture of an instance of it happening while I was playing Greed Corp. On the left hand side there is a clear line, to the left of that being a segment of the screen which should be on the right side, if I move my mouse over the right side of the screen, it wraps around to that far-left segment.

I would say that you need to go into the monitors OSD and ajust the screen so that it is centered i think it somehow got off center. If you can't make the adjustment there then in the video card or monitor properties in Windows there will have to be an adjustment option. Did you set up your monitor when you got it.

The monitor only switches to this weird off-center mode occasionally when streaming video or playing games, otherwise it's perfectly adjusted.

In your video cards control panel do you have an option to resize your desktop , I'm unsure about AMD cards as I have Nvidia cards and never had any other.

I have an XFX HD 6870, and have this problem too. It only does it sometimes.

I down clocked the 6870 to below specs and that seemed to help alot.
I have tried updating the bios, replacing the bios with another. It seems to happen randomly to me.

Nearest i can tell it's the graphics card. Something goes wonky in there, It may be the ram.

Im going to live with it, as it doesn't happen often, and get a gtx670 when it comes out.
