    Black bar in monitor

    Hi there.

    I have a strange issue. I installed W10 recently and everything works fine now. However, I found something pretty strange in my screen monitor. The problem is last horizontal lines are in pure black just as if there wasn't anything. For example, when you minimize a window, it displays in the Windows bar with a blue/cyan line. In my case, I cannot see that. It is very uncomfortable when watching a movie in fullscreen mode, for instance. Nevertheless, if I take a screenshot, it displays that part of the image perfectly.

    I suspect it is a problem of drivers. However, I have my Nvidia card updated...

    My monitor is: Acer AL1916W. It is connected via VGA.

    It was because of the new Nvidia drivers, which let this happen. I installed a previous version and it worked!
