I had the exact same problem with my Sony Vaio Pro 13 (Intel Core i7 / HD 4400 Graphics) and I could solve this by turning off ‘X-Reality for mobile’ in Vaio Control Center.

Apparently I'm not the only one with this problem. This seems to be a specific Sony Vaio issue.
‘X-Reality for mobile’ is an exclusive Sony image processing technology that enhances the image quality.
While we are waiting for the Windows 10 compatible drivers from Sony, we can turn off this option as a workaround to prevent video distortion.
Let’s hope that Sony will come up with a final solution to this issue.
