I've been using my notebook without any problems for the past six months, but just within these past few days, it's been giving me display issues. The problem I have occurs when I use the right-click menus. When I click on something from the right-click menu, that selection remains superimposed on the screen, and it stays there regardless of whatever I have displayed on the screen (full screen or partial). It's also funny that while everything
is superimposed by the "artifact", my mouse cursor is the only display item that doesn't get covered on screen. I attached here relevant screenshots of what the problem looks like.
This annoyance happens only once (meaning, every right-click selection I make thereafter doesn't create more of the same type of artifact); however, the artifact won't disappear until I reboot (but the problem happens once again whenever I make a right-click selection).
Clicking "Refresh" in the desktop right-click menu doesn't make it go away. Putting an application or video player in full screen doesn't make it go away. Uninstalling/Reinstalling display drivers
didn't fix the problem. The ONLY temporary fix I found that worked was to go into screen resolutions menu and temporarily changing to a different screen res and back to my native res. HOWEVER, as I've stated, this is only a temporary fix as the problem occurs again the next time I right-click select.
Does anyone know what this problem is caused by? I already performed some of the obvious troubleshooting methods, but nothing worked. Please let me know if there's a way to fix this problem- it's VERY annoying to deal with.
