    Can you post a screen capture or picture?

    The "Print Screen" key will capture a screenshot.

    If you are using Win7, you can also used Snipping Tool.

    no , its lagging in real time, so if my display is still it wont show anything because the screen .1 seconds ago would be the same, so that wont work. but i came across a video that called someting similiear to whats happening to me 'screen tearing' the only difference being that mine happens constantly. and thanks for trying to help me still .

    Tearing is the result of the screen refreshing while still trying to write the previous image.

    Manually update/reinstall the video drivers.
    Ensure your desktop resolution matches your monitors native resolution (@ 60hz).
