Vibrating Video Screen in Game

By ddvorpahl ·
I have a PIII 550MGZ with GeForce 2MX400 Card. I am running WinXP Pro with 384MG of ram. When I run Gore or Medal of Honor, the screen vibrates causing the same screen to be overlapped twice. I can not make any adjustment to the screen to cause it to stop. I have downloaded the latest drivers from Nvidia & tried the maker of the card Visiontec, but to no avail. I am running the latest microsoft dx also. Any ideas?

Is this happen only in the game...or the entire session of Windows starting from boot...are vibrating?

If it is entire session ill sugest you to check your monitor's connector including your power cable through the socket of power supply..maybe in some reason there is a leak (grounded in my terms) of power that causes the current to fluctuate and affect the monitors output. In most cases flactuation is the common source of this problem, so having a surge protector is advisable. Magnetic device such as speakers too close to monitor can also cause to vibrate the monitors output, so make sure monitor is good in place.

Swaping your monitor is a best way to check, so if there is available unit....used it. for checking and you will find your way..


So far..in my experience i did'nt encounter software problems that causes the monitor to vibrate.

This problem only occurs while playing the game. This occurs only in 1942 & Gore. Otherwise the monitor is fine.

I would check the game video options settings in relation to the 3D Effects/Glide and similar settings. Sometimes these settings can cause cinflicts between the video drivers, DirectX and the operating system giving weird graphics.

As the screen is overlayed with the same info it is difficult to make changes to the program. But I did try.

I've had this problem when the monitor was not adequately shielded from interferences from other devices, like the TV, or the computer itself.

One other time I had this issue when the video card was too close to the power supply.

Try moving the location of the computer and the monitor.

Or try a different refresh rate.

The computer & monitor are at least 10 feet away from the TV so there is no interference.

As stated by dpetrk, do you have any other electronic devices near the machine, fans, speakers, radios, ... move them away from the monitor. If it's only happening in the games you may be pushing your system further than it is willing to go betweenthe fsb of the board and the speed of the video card. Turn some of the special affects off and see if it continues.

As stated above. There are no electronic devices near the monitor that would affect it. This problem only occurs during game play. Otherwise the monitor has a beautiful rock solid display.

Sure sounds like a bugger of a problem, the hardware you have is all good quality as is the software. i have heard of no incompatabilities with any of this gear. I take you you have checked the Nvidea website FAQs and support people.

Since the video worked well with everything else, it indicates a problem between the video drivers and the game software. Try reloading the games and see what happens. If they have video testing during the game loading run it.

Shame about it not being the 3D effects settings, the only time I had a problem like this was with Star Trek Elite Force when I set the video resolution too high (1024 x 75 the 3D effects went crazy and gave me overlapped screens, I reloaded with a lower resoultion (800 x 600) for the game play and has been OK since.
