Just started all of a sudden, not after a patch or anything just played some matches today and had graphical tearing any time I opened the shop or chat window. Changed graphics settings around, restarted computer etc. and nothing worked.

hey, just thought i would give this a bump, and see what the word is.

NOTE- since the first time this started, i can now open the box with characters and items, without the glitch.
pressing enter to chat, shopping, spectating and dominion still give issues.

hi guys! so I went looking around the interwebs for something that would help fix this problem and yes updating the drivers for my graphic card, AMD hd5650, did just that. I was running drivers from 2011 and also I was using my laptop which had switchable graphics. So here's the link, http://forum.notebookreview.com/hp-e...envy-14-a.html, I just downloaded the 12.10 drivers and let it do its thing and it worked. I dont know if it is just specific for hp envy laptops or just hd 5650 and 6630 graphics card but I hope this will work for you guys as well.

An innocent little bump. This bug is really annoying me, since I can't even spectate games. :\

I have the same problem but mine is labeled as pictures 4-6 seconds and then normalized and sometimes I have to restart.

Riot please help.
And now we want to help because nobody wants to wait until the new patch on Tuesday.

Fix it.

I had this same issue, but I'm downloading the AMD Catalyst Driver... ATI Radeon 5000s something here too.

I have HD 5650 huh I'll see what's up,

hmm nope I still have the same problem, I'll see if another driver works but after that I'm not touching my driver at all. If the problem didn't happen before the preseason patch doesn't that kinda give a hint of what the problem was? I mean the error happened after that. The only fix at the moment is that the TAB menu works now. There is still a minor color problem but it isn't covering the whole thing so there's improvement going on

welp I updated to AMD Radeon HP 6500M/5600/5700 Series, I also changed my Catalyst Control Center to "default" setting. Idk what made it work but one of those two changes made my spec of games not have the swirly lights problem anymore. I'll include both DxDiags

The problem is fixed for me. I'm not sure how it happened, but it could be either one of the following:

-Steam ATI Radeon update: Steam asked me whether I wanted to install something that would automatically look for driver updates for HD Radeon graphics, and I installed it.

-Latest Windows update: I installed it without looking too much into details

After I made these 2 changes, I reboot my computer and the problem was fixed. Unsure which 1 did the trick.

This just started to happen to me on Friday and I was just able to fix it tonight. I updated my graphic card (I have the ATI 5650) and now the bug is gone, I also haven't noticed any huge lag spikes or ping spikes.
