Try this, it worked for me. I'm using Windows 7 and Intel graphics, Asus i5, but if you're talking about the picture being split up by a black line, generally in the middle and top area of the screen, it could be that your Desktop Composition is Disabled. Start > Right-Click "Computer" > Properties Advanced System Settings on the left, which brings up the System Properties box. Go to the Advanced Tab on top and click Performance. This pops up Performance Options. If Enable Desktop Composition is not checked, try checking it and saving. You'll be able to tell pretty much instantly if it works. Your screen will flicker for a few seconds tops while it adjusts. I noticed it fixed screen tearing for me when I stream to my TV using an HDMI cord on Netflix. It didn't seem to be a problem just on my laptop but when I stream to the TV it becomes very obvious. Hope this helps!
first of all Hp DV series is nororious for video issues,their heat sink isnt the best and needs repasted,take a peek at youtube,ive seen many of them repaird within just a litte bit of time, by just cleaning then putting new thermal paste on.
This is the fix that works for me - right click Computer /My Computer -properties. Click performance, Click Adjust Visual Effects. Check - Let Windows choose whats best for my computer. Click Apply!
I dont know if you run windows 8, but i had this exact problem, and i found out i could use the windows 8 NetFlix app. the app works fine. I too worked on fixing this for like an hour so i was kinda pissed that it just doens't work online and have to use the app, but whatever. hopefully you figure it out.
