aaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrrrggggggghh,

I just installed 9.1 and now I have a problem:
whenever I scroll a (scroll)bar, lines (going up) appear on the screen (not only in the window). (Is there a problem with the memory, macOS 9.1 or something else, I don't know)
It's VERY annoying!
Can someone help me out here?

I would check in the monitors control panel and check the refresh rate. Make sure it didn't get set too high by 9.1

A dark line? No, it's not very visible, it's almost the right color.

What kind of computer? What kind of monitor? imac, 350, indigo


the problem SEEMS to be solved, i don't know why, just played around in the monitors control panel.

thanks,

I'm not sure what kind of lines you mean, but It may be that the new ATI drivers are limiting your refresh rate choices, in which case you might try SwitchRes-

BUT first look in Monitors control panel and select "all" for resolution choices, then try one other than your current resolution/refresh rate.

good luck
