As the title says, I've plugged in an AOC external monitor to my laptop using the hdmi port, and now it displays a partially transparent white box on the upper left corner. I've:
-turned both on and off again
- swapped hdmi cables
-changed to different port on the monitor

Has anybody had anything similar to this or seen it anywhere?
The laptop is running windows 7 64 bit, using an nvidia chipset.

Thanks in advance.

Ps had a search through google and no help there either. :-(

I've tried the same laptop in another hd screen and the white box isn't present there, would this be some sort of issue with the monitor?

Right I feel like a complete twat now.
After your suggestion I went through the screen menu, abd there was a function called "bright frame" in the Picture boost menu that I had turned on....... feeling rather dumb right about now.
But thanks for th eadvice, it prompted me to have a further look lol.
