Is this a laptop or PC? If it is a PC see if there are any on screen controls on the monitor that need setting.

It could be a monitor fault. Try it on another computer or try someone else's on yours.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Do you have a screen saver set to run after a minute of idle time?

Borrow an external monitor and see if that does it too. It would eliminate the possibility of it being a screen fault from the equation.

Also you could try it in Safe Mode. If it works normally there then a graphics driver issue is possible:
