Hi JaxEx, welcome to the forums, sorry for the late reply.

The best option is to try and re-install the latest drivers for your video card. If you fill in your 'System Specs' (User CP) then we can give more in depth advice.

You can find it in your device manager!

Start -> Control Panel -> System and Security -> System -> Device Manager -> Display Adapter

You can also right-click the desktop & select 'Screen Resolution' and then click 'Advanced settings' and this will bring up a detailed view of your current GFX card. See example below

You're display adapter has been disabled. You can right click & enable it and you should be 100% active again
