Blackstripes around screen, new problem.


I have blackstripes around my screen and I don't know how to get rid of them. I need your help.

My computer is not new, 8 months old. And for 2 weeks ago I got blackstripes around the sceeen and I did not change any settings. It just happend.

Here is a printscreen but as you can see there is no blackstripes on it;

I have a GTX 660ti Grapics Card and a old monitor with 1680*1050, 32 bit.

I don't know what I need to tell more right now but ask if you want to know something.

The one who helps me to fix this is amazing!!

You mean yours is like LETTER-BOXED, black borders on all 4 sides?

If that is it, within Nvidia's video card app/settings look for scaling and adjust it, I am using AMD, and it did that to one of my monitors, immediately, so every wipe and drop I have to adjust that scaling.

Hello and thanks for the answer!

Yes I have blackborders on all sides.

Here is the scaling setup in Nividas settings. I can't understand what it means and when I switch around to different setting it does not happend anything. This is on swedish but I have translated the headtext. At scale mode there is picture scale, whole screen and no scale as options. (maybe weird translate but I guess you understand)

I'm sorry that screen grab is not in english unable to help further.

My AMD has a slider on the scaling adjust, and it was NOT all the way to the right, when I took it to the far right the borders vanish.

Where are the Nvidia owners to help further?!?

Attached photo of what mine looks like: [Look for something similar]

Does your monitor have an auto adjust button?
