Try the methods provided below and see if it helps.
Method 1: Boot the computer in safe mode.
Let’s boot the computer in Safe Mode and check if issue reappears. Safe mode is a diagnostic mode that starts your computer in a limited state. Only the basic files and drivers necessary to run Windows are started. The words

a. When you hit the power button in Windows 8.1 (through Charms Bar), hold down the

Advanced options followed by WindowsStartupSettings from the next screen.
d. Your PC will now be rebooted to enable the advanced parameters, which include Safe Mode as well. Once it restarts, you’ll get nine options whereby the following commands apply:
F4 for Safe Mode
F5 for Safe Mode with Networking
F6 for Safe Mode with Command Prompt

In addition to that try to install all of the Windows updates available and if issue persists, try to update the Display drivers by following the steps provided in the article mentioned below.
The issue could also be related to the Display drivers and other updates. I want to inform you that updates will be released by Microsoft. So, I would suggest you to keep checking your Windows updates
not only important one but optional too. If any available try to install them and see if it helps you to fix the issue.
