You may be seeing the Artboards document which shows a black outline around the artboard.
What is the drawing mode you have selected in Photoshop's Preferences > Performance > GPU > Advanced.
You'll want to set it to Advanced and then Restart Photoshop.

Alternatively, do you see this in a File > New > Non-Artboard preset?
