    uninstalll the display driver and reboot, should sort it pal.

    Also make sure the driver/program is fully up to date :)

    Hi Thank you for reply, it worked and I now have a resolution I can work with.
    Had tried this before but after a short time it reverted back, not this time, the only difference this time is I shut the machine down and repower it up, before I just clicked restart button, on all occasions it showed that I have the latest drivers installed, also when I now go into settings display adapters it has changed from Intel HD graphics to Microsoft Basic Display adapter, I don't understand this, do you?.
    Thank you again for your help, much appreciated.
    kind regards

    The 'latest' is only valuable if the older ones have security risks and the latest mitigates those risks.

    In the case of drivers, it may be that the 'latest' is the cause of the problem. Sometimes, the solution is to roll back to an earlier Intel graphics driver that worked.
