As long as I use the driver from July I have no problem. As soon as I update to new driver in Windows 7 or 8 it causes this to happen to my monitor(check out pictures.

I haev tried everything I have updated bios all windows updates and still causes. I have tried using HDMI hookup and also dvi. The other weird thing is it does not cause this effect on my other monitor which is a cheaper one.

 

I am running quad 7970s on a Asus maximus v extreme

 

Anyhelp would be appreicated. I don't think there is much to fix other than these drivers though because it works fine on old ones or if I dont install any.

I have exactly the same problem. I have the 7870 running on the MSI Big Bang X-Power motherboard. Still no fix yet?

Even with the new driver, 13.2, my videocard does exactly the same thing. Version 12.8 is the latest good working software. Can anyone maybe help to solve this problem?
Still running the 7870.

 Thanks in advance!

I run a 5770 and have that problem however I found that if you change your refresh rate from 60Hz to 59Hz you can still view everything fine. However if a game or application doesn't have vsync then it goes back to being messed up.
