Since installing GTX 1070 - Screen very blurry/Pixelated

Hi all,

Ok so I need your help. I recently (3weeks ago) installed a GTX 1070 on my system. First game I played was BF1. Started noticing that everything seems very blurry. At first I though is was the game but then I start to notice it on my desktop icons, words, when browsing, everywhere. I also played Battlefield 4 a few days ago and noticed the blurriness there too, so I knew something was wrong...

If I sit in front of my screen I can literally see the little pixels on my mouse and desktop icons. Its very difficult to explain but my Monitor is not sharp anymore.

I did re-install my drivers numerous times(DDU) , I did try to change setting and resolution. Nothing works.

i7 4790/MSI Gaming 5/16gb 1866mhz RAM/MSI GTX 1070 Gaming X/- Monitor - Samsung S24D590PL - Running at 1080p

I have no idea what this can be? Can it be that my GPU is faulty?

Also just to mention - In game my resolution shows 1920x1080 at 59.95 HZ and not 60hz. Don't know why?

Any help would be appreciated.

  1. Did you try to adjust the resolution in NVIDIA Control Panel?

    I did yes. Also for one or other reason the connection says HDMI - HDTV, and I am using a monitor?

    There is one thing that I saw in a forum somewhere on the internet, by changing the refresh rate to 59 and adding a custom resolution, I have not tried that yet.
  3. Are you able to send a screenshot of what it actually looks like in your screen? I cannot image what it looks like in my mind, so pictures can help, but if somebody else with better knowledge comes along, then listen to them, but right now, I will try my best to help you.

    I think it will be difficult to see though.

    Just to mention. I recorder some gameplay with MSI after burner a while ago and it looked awesome when I watched the video, however when playing it did not look like that on my screen...

  5. I had the same problem. Once I went into the advanced video setting in the game and turned on DX12 everything smoothed out. Hope that works for you too.
