How to fix Nvidia screen tearing?

Whenever I watch videos on YT, there are a lot of screen tearing.
So I searched the wiki for a solution, unfortunately none of those worked for me as it resulted in a black screen wherein the cursor is the only thing on the screen.
I have a Nvidia GT 730 and I already installed any proprietary drivers it have.

How will I fix the screen tearing aside from the solutions mentioned in the wiki?

I literally answered this question few days ago. Just use search.

Oh sorry but when I enabled Force Full Composition Pipeline on the Nvidia, it resulted on a black screen with cursor as the only thing I am able to see.

Do you have any suggestions on how to bypass the black screen?

Don’t use it then, and try to use this as an example:
