    Can you restore them using Alt+Tab?

    Is your display driver the latest and greatest?

        How did you determine the driver is up to date? Relying on Windows to search for an updated driver will not always find one. If you have not already done so, check out the manufacturers web site for a driver.

        Also, can you restore the windows using Alt+Tab?

          As per this post on Experts-Exchange, try going into your display properties and then to the advanced section. Switch from 32 bit to 16 bit. See if that helps. Then you should be able to switch it back to 32 bit again.
