Hello JEF123,

It is likely a problem related to the graphics card.

¤ Start in "Safe Mode" by tapping F8 key at startup (before the Windows logo appears).

¤ When the black window of the "startup advanced options" will appear, choose "Safe Mode" and click on "Enter".

¤ Once safe mode loaded, go to Device Manager and remove the graphics card driver, then reboot and reinstall the latest driver (or one that worked fine previously).

I hope this manipulation will be able to resolve your problem.
Regards. Bridget.
