Computer Black screening on left click?

by icmc87 / April 15, 2018 6:27 AM PDT

Has to be one of the strangest issues I've ever run into. My son was using my computer to play some Prodigy and now when I close my browser window and try to left click on anything the screen goes black. (Almost as if it's gone to sleep except I was just active on it and no amount of button hitting is bringing it back) . I've since figured out that right clicking brings it back instantly. The mouse moves with no issue while the screen is black and everything comes right back. I have done some googling but am coming up dry at the moment and have no idea. I'm running windows 7 if that helps at all. I've checked / reseated all my cables so I don't think this is a physical issue,

Help me Obi One Kenobi you're my only hope.
