screen tearing on desktop?
That is new... maybe your card clocks itself further down as it should check clocks on idle.

go to the sensor tap and watch your clocks on desktop. I hope the 5xxx series clock itself down.
And are you 2 monitors? If so

Problem: Using multiple monitors, Radeon 5xxx series video cards, and with only 2D applications running, one or more of your monitors is exhibiting horitizontal flashing lines, particularly when moving windows around.

Cause: If you are using 10.3a or later drivers with ATI Overdrive enabled, this apparently sets your 2D clocks too low to properly drive multiple monitors.

Looks like you're using an older driver. The latest WHQL is 9.012, and that's just 13.1. There's also been several beta drivers for 13.2 and 13.3 since then.

Driver install method matters a lot with AMD too. I use their Cleanup Utility followed by Driver Sweeper, then a reboot and install of the new drivers.

Barring any odd hardware and/or heat issues, I'd say this is software related.

Swipe your driver install newest.
If problem consist.


1. In Programs and Features, uninstall any ATI software, including application profiles. Restart if necessary.
2. Go to Device Manager, expand the Display adapters, right click your Radeon GPU, and Uninstall. Check the option to 'delete driver software.' This should require a restart.
3. Optionally use a third party driver cleaner and/or registry cleaner at this point.
4. Install CCC, and then the latest application profiles.
Now your multiple-monitor 2D flashing should be resolved; do NOT enable ATI Overdrive, or it will come back to haunt you. You should be able to use Overdrive with a single monitor without issue, or use Overdrive with multiple monitors and 3D applications.
