I recently changed out the bulb, unfortunately I don't remember if it was fine before, but here is what is happening.

I use my projector to display my computer, when I grab a window and move it left to right, I notice that the bottom 1/5th of the screen slightly lags behind.

Any idea on how to fix this? Everything else seems to be fine, but this issue is driving me insane. My settings are all default, except - Dynamic, and 5 sharpness.

Projectors don't "tear". Tearing is the result of your video card not syncing up with the display it's attached to.

If you're using Windows XP, try enabling Window Composition mode under the visual effects section. If you're using Windows 7, just make sure an Aero theme is enabled. I think either of those enable Vertical Sync.

If either of those don't help, check out your graphics card control panel and make sure you don't have Vertical Sync forced off for everything.

If that doesn't help, I'd say reinstall your graphics card driver.

Current HT setup:

Samsung UN65F6300 65" LCD HDTV, Polk CS20 Center, 2x Polk Monitor 75T Fronts, 2x Polk TSI300 Backs, Polk PSW110 Subwoofer.

Do you think it's possible that it's the bulb? Maybe it's not "Tearing", but basically when I drag a window, you can tell that a particular spot (One giant horizontal line towards the bottom) is off. You can notice it immediately, as I move my internet window left to right. Maybe I don't have the correct term. If anyone could shed some light on this issue, it would be most appreciated.

No one is going to answer you because the problem isn't your projector. It's your computer, as I already said.

Hook up any other source to it, a TV, a game console, whatever... I'm sure it'll be fine.

Current HT setup:

Samsung UN65F6300 65" LCD HDTV, Polk CS20 Center, 2x Polk Monitor 75T Fronts, 2x Polk TSI300 Backs, Polk PSW110 Subwoofer.
