    Game made screen go to the left


    I was about to play Portal (One) on my 1920x1080 60hz 23" monitor. When I set the resolution to 1920x1080, the screen turned black (usual for games when changing resolution), the it popp with a 2-inch black bar on the left side. I thought it was just the game being buggy, so I set it to a lower resolution and windowed it. Then I realized, it was with my whole screen, desktop had the black bar and all. I restarted my computer, didn't fix it. My monitor doesn't have a auto screen adjust. When I try to set the screen position via monitor menu, it can't go that far over and the same in my graphics card control panel. My graphics card is old, it's a HD 4650, but it's done fine until Portal. So how do I fix this?

    Fixed it by combining my monitor screen position through the monitor menu and the monitor screen position through my graphics card control panel to just the right amount. I'd still like to know why it did that... Because when I put the game at 800x600, it did the auto-adjust, fixed the black bar in game (while full screen) but didn't fix the black bar any... I looked all over for the auto-adjust, I couldn't find it.

    EDIT - 1920x1080 full screen still does it. But only in game now.

Hi, I have an issue with a white rectangular box appearing in the top left corner of my laptop screen. It covers the icons behind it and renders them 'unclickable'. Nothing happens if the box itself is clicked on. It does not stay on top of other windows, just the desktop.
