Last week I had to reinstall windows because of me stupidly trying to take ownership of C:\ (never again) anyway, I reinstalled Windows 10 and ever since I have had this issue which has been driving me up the wall.

 

I have tried everything to remedy it now, multiple driver installs (using DDU in safe mode) taking my gpu out and putting it back in, multiple windows reinstalls, fixed the DPI issues on windows 10, made sure scaling is set correctly, I am literally running out of ideas! (GTX 980 GPU btw)

Basically, I have my PC connected to my HDTV and before the fresh install of windows I was having no problems with this at all, since then I have noticed (in games only it seems) that there is some sort of "motion blur" I have checked youtube videos for reference and nobody else seems to be having this problem.

It kind of feels like a refresh rate issue, like I can see some sort of Ghosting on the image?

I have provided a video clip that I have slowed down so you can see what I am talking about...(maybe NSFW because it is doom, so be warned of gore etc)

Now look at his arms when he jumps, it's like there is a double image? That happens at full speed as well and it's noticeable, I have just slowed the video down so you can really see it (note this is at 1080p running at ultra with motion blur off)


What could be causing this? Or is this normal? It seems to be happening in other games as well (Rocket league for example) am I literally just going crazy? Does this thing happen to anyone else? Or is there something wrong somewhere with my settings? Or Drivers?

Any ideas would be welcome as it's really bugging me and I am not going to reinstall windows again for like the 10th time lol.

Make sure to set correct native resolution for the HDTV. Try previous graphic card driver if latest version of the graphic card driver is no working.

Done both, the issue still remains.

You only see smooth motion when the graphics card is locked to the monitor refresh, typically called 'vsync' and there are no dropped frames. If your monitor is working at 60Hz which most do, then you need the graphics card to animate the game at 60 frames per second (fps). If it does so at 30fps or any other rate, then you see effects like judder, screen tearing etc.

Oh I know, the issue I seem to be having though is that it is blurring with motion, the framerate is a constant 60fps with vsync on, not getting any tearing or such.

 

My hdtv is showing as generic pnp monitor could that be something to do with it?

PnP has nothing do with double image frame rate and refresh rate will cause image ghosting make sure to set correct refresh rate for the HDTV.
