    Window borders and taskbar menus are black

    I am having a problem with graphics.

    The borders of any current window that is open turns black. May it be a web browser, application, or explorer. The background of the taskbar menu is black as well. When i click on the menu bar or any application (web browser, software app) it flickers. When I open the task manager the whole window flickers. When I right-click on something the menu flickers too.

    I have no idea whats wrong. Help would be greatly appreciated. If you need additional information please feel free to ask.

Windows 8 window borders
Hi All, I am not sure if this a theme issue, but as the attached screenshot (windows 8 theme.png), the borders around all my windows look 'classic'. The second screenshot is what I expected the windows to look like (win8_ribbon_021.jpg). Is this normal of am I missing something? Thanks.
