    That would be an issue with either the display panel or the display cable, most likely. Not software, sorry.

    What happens if you change the Desktop image?

    [EDIT] Nevermind. I see that it appears with two different Desktop images. Hard to imagine that it's hardware related if it's not present in open windows.

    What happens if you create a new account? Same issue there?
