    I have been pushed to the extent to ask help regarding an issue I am facing. I have tried many different methods but I have not been able to successfully solve this issue I am facing.

    I am using a Windows 10 Laptop, Acer Predator 15, and I have this issue when launching applications, mostly game-related ones. I use Integrated Graphics where I have Intel HD Graphics 530 as well as NVIDIA Geforce GTX 970 M. My pc is x64 bit and runs on Windows 10 and is upto date. While the game launches, it does not display, and only a small portion of its title bar can be viewed. The game's sound runs in the background but I can't view or play the game. This is not pertaining to just Steam but also other clients such as Origin,, etc. I can't even open Origin right now because of this error.

    I have contacted Microsoft Support, Windows Support and Steam support but none of them have been able to help me. I am hoping someone has solved or knows how to solve this issue.

    The only thing that shows up is a title bar, the width of half a finger, and it has the name of the application on it and the minimize, maximize and close buttons.
    I have attached an example here so it can help you understand.
    This problem usually happens when I try to launch most steam games and other applications like Origin, etc. I would be grateful to anyone who can help me out.
