    Hi,

    I have an issue with a white rectangular box appearing in the top left corner of my laptop screen.

    It covers the icons behind it and renders them 'unclickable'.

    Nothing happens if the box itself is clicked on.

    It does not stay on top of other windows, just the desktop.

    It appears after the laptop has been to sleep and on occasions, just seems to appear randomly.

    I have attached a screenshot of the issue.

    I believe it may be a problem with Display Link drivers i use for a universal adapter for multiple monitors. I have asked around on display links forums but i am yet to find a solution (updated all drivers, uninstalled, re-installed, etc.), so i thought I would ask you guys if you have any ideas.

    I have found similar issues here:

    White box in desktop corner on Dynadock with Windo... - Toshiba Forums

    White Box on Desktop with Dynadock - DisplayLink Forum

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Many Thanks

    Solved.

    I found what was causing the issue. It was nothing to do with the display link drivers as I first suspected. I have a MSI laptop and the problem was from a program called 'System Control Manager'. I uninstalled and installed a specific version for Windows 8 machines that have upgraded from Windows 7, from the MSI website and the issue is resolved.
