Default Tearing issues

For the most part, any tearing I experience can be remedied by a quick trip to the graphic options section of whatever game I may be running. However, I find that every now and then (probably once ever 10 minutes or so) I get an incredibly large burst of what I assume is tearing, and only for a split second. It's almost as though the right half of my screen shreds through my left side as if it were dislocating itself and popping itself back in. It doesn't leave any sort of blackness or emptiness in its wake, and since it's very quick it's very hard to describe.

Setup details that I can think of off the top of my head:

nVidia GTX550Ti (always running at 1920X1080 if the game allows, otherwise maximum allowed)
Monitor is a 21" LED TV with VGA input. Runs at 60hz.

The "tearing" only seems to happen when playing a game, so I don't know if it's related to my refresh rate, my drivers, or even just the games in general.
