    Unhappy screen acts up when opening excel

    Ok.....recently this is what happens when I open an Excel document. I click to open the excel document and the screen goes completely black for a moment or two then the document opens. After the document is displayed the screen looks like it is not fully powered. Kind of skewed but readable for sure. Any ideas ? By the way.....ignore other applications is not checked.

    You really need to give us more info. Laptop or Desktop? Operating system? Excel version? Any recent updates to operating system or Office? Any updated graphics card drivers?

    Is there anything showing in Event Viewer?

    Have you tried a System Restore to a date before the problem appeared? Does the problem persist?

    Have you tried adjusting screen resolution and refresh rate?

    Have you tried another monitor?

    Lots of questions, but necessary to try to pinpoint the cause of the problem.
