  • VIDEO CARD: ADM Radeon HD (integrated)
I read the linked article. My driver, AMD Radeon HD 7560D, is not listed. It is a build-in graphics in my processor, A10-6700. The latest recommendation is I have seen is by AJ Reissig. He has recommendations at http://ajreissig.com/eliminate-screen-tearing-amd-graphics/ and http://ajreissig.com/eliminate-screen-tearing-amd-graphics/

Lite Install Drivers shows
 
.

I have not noticed any screen tearing other than when I view You Tube videos that are suppose to be tests to show if you have it or other video problem just using the driver picked by Linux Lite. I am inclined to leave well enough alone. I do not like all the busy effects of Compiz so do not particular want to clutter up my computer with it for that solution.

Any recommendations?  :-\

Or if I can't tell it is broke.  ;D The more information that I see about this, the more confusing it is.
