I might be misunderstanding something so I apologize in advance. The cat image is being displayed in Windows Photo Viewer and obviously the image isn't displaying correctly. The screen behind the cat is (I'm guessing) your Pictures library. It seems to be displaying OK. So in this one particular instance it's possible that Windows Photo Viewer might be damaged or corrupted in some way. Since Photo Viewer is a part of the Windows operating system, a System File Checker scan may be able to fix damaged or corrupt files. If SFC finds any problems, run the scan 3 times rebooting in between each scan.

SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

Another possibility might be a damaged or corrupt driver. You could open Device Manager to see if there are any problems listed, particularly for the Vaio monitor, display adapters, and system devices.

Open Device Manager

Please post back to let us know if you find anything.
