Re: Laptop external monitor image tears - help!
Sounds like a communication issue between your laptop, the component, and your television. I've had this happen before, but my laptop manual instructed me how to fix this. Except, I was using a projector instead of a TV.
Made sure your display drives for your laptop are up to date?
I hope I can help you in the future. Please feel free to contact me at anytime for IT-related questions.
