Hello everyone,

Did anyone else notice that with the new ATI 8.1 driver a little white square shows up in the upper left side of the screen? I have Vista 32 bit and a ATI HD 3850 256 and I only see the square on my desktop backround. People on another forum said that it goes away if you close CCC. I haven't tried it yet though......

Anyways, I just wanted to know if anyone else noticed this...

Thanks!

I have heard horror stories about ATI drivers before which is why I have always stayed away.

I have yet to have issues with ATI drivers, but I have heard of bad stories form each company. No matter who you go with, they'll have some ups and downs.
I do not have this white square.

I'm glad to know it's not just my eyes playing tricks on me (or something worse like a worm). :) I've included part of a screen shot so people can see what it looks like. Hope they fix this soon.

Hi, so when you roll back to the previous driver it goes away? That's very weird :)
