Default LCD monitor & strange line

Hi everyone.

I have a question, if can please help.

Monitor : L222WS Flatron 22 inch
Graphic Card : 8800 GT
Resolution : 1680x1050

I newly bought this computer and all with it and few days ago every time i started up computer icons on the far left side of monitor are kind of moved more to left, like outside the monitor. I tried to do manual adjustment and that didn't work either. Also the icons are visible behind left black part of the screen (not the darkest black, some dark gray).

2nd problem is that when i put my mouse cursor to that far left side of the monitor and if i slide up and down on the gray area, the black line follows cursor trough all the screen. I managed to solve this problem by changing settings to 1440x900 resolution and then reapply 1680x1050.

If anyone know how to fix this issues i would really appreciate it.

Thanks in advance.

EDIT: when i do print screen i can see whole screen, no black area ...

Sounds like you're trying to set a resolution that the monitor doesn't like. Does it do the same thing while on a low resolution like 800x600?

Doesn't seem like that's the problem because the specs here: LG L222WS indicate that the monitor is using it's native resolution.

Try insalling the latest drivers from nVidia first off.

You don't need monitor drivers. I think you just got a bad monitor. Is it too late to return it for a new one?

Monitors don't need drivers. Download the updated drivers from nVidia's site for your card, and then google for DriverCleaner Pro. Read the ReadMe text file that's included with it, and follow that exactly. After you've ran DCP, then reinstall the downloaded drivers.
