Every now and then when I boot up I lose about an inch of my screen. At the left of the monitor screen there is just an empty black space about an inch wide, running the height of the screen.
It seems to happen at random, I never change resolution or any other screen settings and there doesn't seem to be a pattern following the last program used (apart from firefox which is always open anyway).
Anyone any idea what could cause this?
Just to clarify, I can see the entire window that is on screen it just gets squashed into the remainder of the screen.
In your graphics card driver files there should be a cfg adjustment,it should allow you to "move" the entire screen around.Only prob with this is its not guaranteed to solve the prob as if it is offset by software,then shifts itself,the blank section could simply move to another side,etc.
It could be caused by a damaged graphics driver file,you could try removing it and reinstalling it again,see if it disappears.
Personally,if it is an occasional prob,then I would simply ignore it until it either "developed" or vanished. ;-)
