Windows 10: Black screen when opening Mail/Calendar

    Black screen when opening Mail/Calendar

    Hi. I updated to Win10 two days ago. It worked perfectly the first night, next day start menu and Cortona were unresponsive. I found a bunch of solutions online for that problem, so I was able to fix it. Now, however, I have a new issue that I cannot find an answer to anywhere. When I click on mail or calendar app, I get a black screen and I cannot do anything. I restart and everything is back to normal, except that when I click on those two again, the same thing happens.
    I've noticed that a lot of people have a black screen on booting, I only have it appear black for a little bit before it proceeds to turn on, I think that's just the part of it starting and that's not really my problem.
    I haven't checked all the apps, I can imagine that maybe the same thing might happen with some others.

    Thank you.

    Update: It just went to sleep and keeps a black screen then too.
    Second update: If I close my lid, after I open it again, start menu and cortana won't work again.
