I just built a PC (hardware listed below) and when it starts up, it is fine. The standard Windows 10 desktop task bar at the bottom will show up, and the start menu can be used. However, the icons (eg. the Recycling Bin shortcut) do not show up on the screen.
Right-clicking the desktop brings up the standard menu, but when I click the "Display Settings" Button, it opens up - apparently - and shows up on the task bar. In fact, I can hover over the spot on the task bar and it will show the small preview window. But it does not show up on the screen itself. No window of any application, not even the control panel, will show up on screen except the start menu.
The computer was only just built and I need to install a number of drivers (which is probably the cause of the problem) but I can't see the installers, or even the File Explorer window to start the installers. So my question is: how do I get the computer to at least show me the windows so I can finish installing driver? Thanks for any help.
- GPU: Nvidia EVGA GeForce GTX 970
- OS: Windows 10, 64-bit
- An Asus display (Sorry I can't find the model)
In case it is relevant, the display will crash/disconnect after about 3 minutes of being on, but I think this will be fixed once the drivers are all up and running
