Hi Heardyousmile and Welcome to FPCH

Try disabling all screen savers.

Remove any THEMES and use the Windows classic setting

Remove any background wallpaper images and just use a single solid color with no patterns.

Try those and let us know how it goes. Also close or stop things from auto starting if you don't use them.
