Windows 7: Screen getting a slight shadow.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64
Screen getting a slight shadow.

I don't really know how to explain this exactly, but whenever I go into fullscreen, whether it be in a game or a video, my screen(Sony TV) seems to get a bit of a shadow on everything.

Like everything will have a gray outline of some sorts. If I change resolution(like going from 1920x1080 to something else and then back to 1920x1080) it becomes normal again. Changing the input of my TV also brings it back to normal.

But it only happens when I go into fullscreen with something.

I'm not exactly sure when this started happening though, all my drivers are also updated.

So what could be causing this? It's rather annoying having to switch resolution or change the input to TV and then back to PC every time this happens.

This is a really hard case, it would be useful if you could do a screenshot of the problem.
