    Program screens look weird, hard to explain

    Ok, here is the deal. I had to restore Windows Vista with a new hd that got shipped to me from HP and I'm looking at the windows I have open and I don't know what the issue is but the left side of the Google Chrome windows and other programs I have open, on the left side it looks curved, like it's tilted a bit.

    Like I said, hard for me to explain, it just doesn't look right as I'm sitting here lol. I know some must be thinking I'm on something but I've compared the screen to another laptop in the home.

    Hallo Holt, i dont know if this is of any help but i have been in the same situation on occassion even got a ruler out and measured things up

    What it was for me was the graphics on the wallpaper i was displaying at the time was making my window borders look out of shape.

    I dont know if this helps or not but i can assure you i wasnt on anything when it happened to me

    I did not know the answer to your question, initially, but now that I have read Mitchells response, I think that he is correct. Try changing the wallpaper that you currently have. If it does not work at first try several other wallpapers. I think that your problem will be resolved.

    @Mitchell, good response, for a rather unique problem. I think it deserves rep.

    Why not post a screenshot to explain it better? Press 'PrtSc' on your keyboard an dtype 'paint' into the start menu search and press enter. Press 'Ctrl' + 'V' and your screen shot should come up. save it, and upload it to us via the paperclip icon when you post a message (top right of post box).

    And anyway, why not just maximise every program so there are no edges?
