    Bummer.

    You seem to have a lot of stuff running in the background, that puts things in your menu bar (top-right corner).

    I would suspect that something you're running is messing things up somehow.

    Can you try not running all your stuff and then reintroducing things one-by-one to see what's causing the problem by process of elimination?

    Now that I think about it, I think it occurs more when I have a lot of tabs open in Google Chrome. Is this a common issue for screen issues to occur due to this? Would this be a hardware issue?

    The items in my menubar aren't too many. They are many default applications that I left up there for quick access (Keychain, Volume, Wifi, Bluetooth, Time Machine)

    I mainly just run Chrome, Tweetbot, and Mail most of the time. The odd thing is this never happened before the re-install.

    I use Chrome all the time and have never had this happen. I would be surprised if Chrome was allowed (by the OS) to mess up the entire screen like this.

    Don't know what the problem could be, though. Sorry.
