Problem: Outlook’s address auto complete won’t turn on

It is the *.NICK file in appdata\microsoft\outlook\ that’s blocking the NK2 file being created after outlook closed. Delete the *.NICK file and the NK2 file will be created when outlook closed. Cache will then work.

When I connect my monitor through HDMI cable, there is a 1/2 to 1 inch border between the edge of the LCD screen and the display area. Why there is a black border when I connect my monitor using HDMI cable?

It is the HDMI underscan/overscan settings. You should go into nvidia/ATI’s control panel to disable/adjust HDMI overscan. It will fix the problem.
