Gnome Intel Screen Tearring

I am really sorry to be asking this. But I am getting really bad screen tearing on my laptops current setup.

Vanilla Gnome install.

Again, I know this is the most common issue ever. But I cannot find a solution.

Any ideas how I can fix this?
Thanks in advance all!

Remove the drivers in MHWD. See if you use or not xf86-video-intel
Also check this:

Do i remove the drivers in MHWD gui or in a terminal?

In the GUI "video-linux" is the only one with a tick next to it.

I checked out that Arch Wiki page before posting. For whatever reason, I don't have the file "/etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/20-intel.conf".
So I wasn't sure if I could just create a new file with the following lines in it.

Section "Device"
  Identifier "Intel Graphics"
  Driver "intel"

  Option "TearFree" "true"

Or if the file needed to contain more information. The wiki doesn't really specify.

Thanks for the help!

Sorry to bump. Still not been able to resolve this.

Get really bad tearring in fullscreen youtube videos. As well as scrolling webpages. Also get problems when watching videos in celluloid or mpv.
