    The little black rectangle in the top right


    Just purchased a new screen for my setup an acer xb281hk, and I noticed a black rectangle in the top right of the screen. Not knowing what it was I googled the issue. Most users advised to reinstall windows or do the whole sfc thing or said my screen had dead pixels.

    Lets deal with the last bit advice, the black square was translucent I could still see an Icon under neath if it was dead that wouldn't happen.

    So backed tracked what I did. I found out the retangle was only present when the monitor was in game mode.

    What it turned out to be was this was the FPS count all I did is switch the screen in to game mode and went in and turned off FPS number and it's now gone.

    No need to reinstall anything, no dead pixels no drama just a case of understanding the problem so before you reach for your recovery process double check the screen mode settings.

    Phew!
