Have you tried...
- In safe mode, delete the 3rd party driver. It should then use the default driver.
- Auto-adjust button (if any)
- Connecting a different monitor?
- RDP into it?
- Logon as a different account?

This maybe happened due to installing new skin that is not compatible with your graphics so if you installed any software that use graphic properties must uninstall it and restart in normal mode

Yes,  I couls see the desktop in safe mode.  I ran a malwarebyte scan and found 900 malware objects.  When I cleaned those up, my icons and desktop returned.  This was the solution
