is no movement at all from mouse or Keyboard use its most likly if not its the VGA settings or bios settings for the way your Vertical synch/horizontal synch etc is set. This being the way the screen refreshes itself etc.

Which monitor do you have and type of monitor conenctor to PC graphics card. Or is this a TFT Screen ?.

Try reset your all your graphics settings for each window to defaults. We really need to know what Graphics Card you have and more of your computers spec.
