Welcome to SF!

If you haven't done so already, I suggest a system restore to get to a point before the troubles began.

A repair install may also do the trick, if no-go with the system restore.

Hi,

Does it work fine if you try it in Safe Mode?

If yes then it will probably be software/driver related, Jonathan_King's 'System Restore' suggestion should cure this providing the computer is restored to a date prior to this issue starting.

Jamie

As for the system restore...

Have you checked to see if you have any restore points?
You may not have created any but your system may have created System Checkpoint restore points.
Or are you saying that System Restore is disabled?

Go ahead and try a repair install. It is not the same as a reformat.
