What version of windows are you running?
You say that this just started recently, meaning there was likely a single event that lead to this outcome. Try and retrace your steps, removing recent software, playing with settings, etc and of course drivers are a likely culprit, too.
This is all assuming you're not infected.

Otherwise, a rebuild might be in order. It's no nightmare I can rebuild a laptop start to finish in 30min sometimes.
