I was having this issue a few weeks ago but it went away after some Windows updates.  I installed video card driver updates also so I don't know which fixed it.  Have you checked these 2 items?  Check for optional compatibility updates also.  I installed all those too.

I rolled out new updates and the issue hasn't happened since. The problem has always been intermittant so I'll have to wait a bit to see if it happens again.
