    This may be an issue with your video display settings. Follow these steps to reset your display settings.

    1.While your computer is booting, when the Power On Self Test is complete (after the computer beeps the first time), press and hold the F8 key.

    2.Select the option to boot in Safe Mode.

    3.Once in Safe Mode:
    In Windows 7, right-click the desktop and choose Screen Resolution.

    In Vista or XP, right-click the desktop, and then click Properties. Then choose the Settings tab.

    4.Change the display settings back to the original configuration.

    5.Restart the computer.

    If that doesn’t resolve your issue, use “Safe Mode with Network Support” to download and install the latest video card driver for your computer.
