I have had this problem ever since I got my GPU, and I don't know how to fix it.

 
My PC Specs:
Windows 8.1 Pro 64 bit
Intel® Pentium® G620 2.60 GHz Dual-Core
ASRock H61M-DGS R2.0
2x Zeppelin 2GB DDR3 (4GB)
TOSHIBA DT01ACA050 500GB
NVIDIA GeForce GT 610 1024MB DDR3
Realtek Onboard Sound Card
Free Silent 500W
 
This is how it looks like (I took a photo with my phone; if I take a screenshot it looks normal):

Look at where my cursor is; how do I get rid of that line?
 
I already got the latest drivers and my GPU isn't faulty.

If you're using the VGA D-SUB connection, press the Auto Adjust button on the monitor.

Does the monitor go through its adjustment procedure when you press the button, shuffling the image location? Can you correct the image position manually from the monitor's setup menu?

I cannot correct it manually, it adjusts itself like you said.

Are you running at the monitor's native resolution? Have you tried any different refresh rates?

Is that the only refresh rate the monitor is capable of, or the only one on offer? What monitor is it?

It's the only refresh rate it's capable of. It's a LG Flatron E1911.

The specs for that model indicate support for refresh between 56HZ to 75Hz. Do you have the .inf file ("driver") for that model installed?:

Sometimes when using 60Hz refresh just from Windows internal timings using EDID, the timing doesn't get set quite right. If you don't have the driver currently installed, try it and maybe being able to set a different refresh could resolve the issue, or perhaps the 60HZ might come right.

My driver was auto-installed by Windows.

 

Wait, I'll install the driver for my monitor from the LG page, maybe it solves the problem.
