circular ring on the left top side of the screen

I have this problem whenever the window start and will say WELCOME. I always get a circular ring on the left top side of the screen (its big)... thats the only place i get that though, when I get on my desktop everything is perfect... can anybody tell me whats causing this, is it the video card or the lcd screen... by the way, i have a 17 inch view sonic 3ms/response and a geforce xfx 6600 256mb also I have a 500w x-finity psu...

  1. Well, a surefire way of finding out is by trial and error. You may try to use a different monitor and if it still persists, then the video card is the problem, now if its the other way around, the monitor is the problem.

    It could be your settings. It sounds like your experiencing artifacts due to running at 8-bit or 16-bit color modes. Check your Display Properties settings panel to make sure you are running at 32-bit mode. Also check the specs on your monitor to make sure it supports 8-bits per channel and not 6 like some monitors.

    One way to test the monitor is to create a gradient image of mainly blue colors and see if you get the same artifacts.
  3. Um, unless I'm misunderstanding your post, I do believe that's what supposed to show up when windows starts up. It's supposed to be a sun or something. I only say this because that's the only screen where that graphic shows up.

    Did this just start showing up recently?
