Skyrim screen tearing?


Jan 11, 2013
Ok I just got skyrim for the pc and it was running very smooth on ultra, I wake up this morning and play again and the screen tears constantly, I turned Vsync on in many ways, I tried it with CCC and it utterly ruined my game! It's fps went from around 100, to 15 after I turned Vsync on with CCC. I have a 60 refresh rate monitor, i'm currently reinstalling the game right now. Can someone please tell me how to fix the screen tearing and or give me the RIGHT way to turn on vsync on skyrim without harming it's fps, I just want it to stay at 60.

Edit: I heard the current drivers of the card could be the reason for flickering.
