Horizontal fluctuations of brightness on screen.
by Shyzar - 8/20/12 10:26 AM
I recently wiped my hard drive and since then, I have been getting horizontal lines in many 3D games. It looks as if the brightness is just fluctuating within those lines.
It seems to only happen in more hardware-intensive games since I notice it in the Witcher 2, Batman Arkham City, and GTA IV, but not in Thief. However, it does not seem to be an overheating problem since these lines occur as soon as the game is started, even if the video card temp is just starting to rise from idle (idle temps around 35 degrees).
Before I reformatted the hard drive, I never experienced these problems.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
