    Make sure your videocard supports your TV's type eg, PAL SECAM NTSC....

    If thats done, make sure thats set via options of ur video card.

    3rdly if ur still getting it. Make sure ur connection cable is not being interfered with by other means... (EG no power cables near the Cable from the computer to the TV)

    And last. Make sure the game is waiting for its Vertical Sync.. eg VSync is on.

    you can also try turning up your screen's refresh rate. It can be done in the video adapter advanced setings on your PC.
