hmm I tried that took me like 30 minutes to install a new driver or w.e, and it's still the same, it's only different if i change the resolution, but that makes it awful, not clear like my regular one.. and other suggestions?

The appearance will be awful.

The point of changing the screen resolution was to check if the Taskbar size was correct at a different resolution.
If it was correct, that would indicate that some setting linked to the normal resolution was causing your issue.

Can you do a force reset of "Auto-Adjust" from the Monitor menu ?
If not, can you choose a different "Scaling Option", "Output Type", or whatever from your Monitor menu ?
I don't know what Monitor you have, maybe your Monitor has a User Manual that documents how to do a "Reset" ???

If that doesn't help, can you change the cable type from the PC to the Monitor ?
If you are using DVI now, can you remove that cable and connect a VGA cable (or vice-versa) ?
You would need another cable to test this.

If that doesn't help, can you test with a different Monitor ?
You would need another Monitor to test this.

I've never used Intel Graphics, but there may be a utility you can get where you can tweak overscan, scaling, etc.
Right now I've got AMD graphics and they have the CCC utility for this ...
NVidea has a similar utility ...
I've never had your issue, but I use the AMD or NVidea utility to tweak things when needed to fix display issues when a Monitor tweak doesn't help ...

As you've done a "factorized reset", updated the Windows driver, and the problem continues, TO ME it seems the problem might be the MONITOR is sending the wrong info to WINDOWS.
If you can do a MONITOR reset, maybe that will fix this issue ?

Anyway, my long winded suggestions of what I would do if I had this issue ...

hth, David
