  • Hi,


    Did this issue happen recently? If so, I suggest you try system restore to get back to a previous good time point:


    What is System Restore?


    Also, have you tried to change your resolution?

    1. Open Screen Resolution by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, and then, under Appearance and Personalization, clicking Adjust screen resolution.

    2. Click the drop-down list next to Resolution, move the slider to the resolution which is labeled as recommended , and then click Apply.

    Change your screen resolution
