Hi NewInHere,

Welcome to Microsoft Answers!

Method 1: Enable VGA Mode on the Windows Startup menu.

If you press F8 and choose Enable VGA Mode on the Windows Startup menu, Windows starts with a screen area of 640 by 480 pixels with low 8-bit color and uses a potentially OEM-provided video driver, not the Microsoft Standard VGA driver. However, if you choose any Safe mode options, the generic Microsoft Standard VGA driver is used with the restrictions that are noted in the following Microsoft Knowledge Base article:

Method 2: Reduce the graphics hardware acceleration settings and check.

To reduce the graphics hardware acceleration setting, follow these steps:

Click Start, click Run, type desk.cpl, and then click OK.

  1. Click the Settings tab, and then click Advanced.
  2. Click the Troubleshooting tab, and then move the Hardware Acceleration slider until it is one notch to the right of None (the Basic acceleration setting).
  3. Click OK, and then click Close.
  4. If you are prompted to restart the computer, click Yes.
