Default windows xp and v-synce help needed

Tried finding a way to do this before, couldn't, so I'm asking here I guess.
Is there any way to force v-sync on the windows desktop? Or in open windows in XP?
Using a LCD panel, and even CRT, whenever I run anything other than a DVD in a window, there is noticeable tearing and V-Sync doesn't seem to work. I've tried forcing it through drivers and through dxdiagnostic, no change. Any suggestions? V-sync works fullscreen however.

V-sync is a 3d only feature and won't affect the XP desktop at all.

You could try changing the refresh rate on your monitor.

I don't think that was the problem, but the question wasn't very clear on the actual problem.

Clarity. It helps me help you.

Well, I guess what I was asking was more whether he was doing these other things while running a DVD or it was going on all the time.

If it's going on all the time, it could be any number of problems, heat related, power management related, bad drivers, crappy software, I'd have to be at the machine to really figure that one out. Certainly can't rule out viruses or spyware problems...

Need more information to diagnose.
