I do not remember specifics on what I was doing before the monitor froze. I noticed it the next day when I sat down to use the computer.
The background of the screen is blue. The screen says "Choose your keyboard layout" Below that a number of languages and/or countries are displayed.
Pressing escape, turning the compter off, etc does not remove it.

> Operating System: Microsoft Windows XP (64-bit)
Approximately every 6 months, Microsoft releases a major update to Windows 10.
For example: March 2017, September 2017, and, most recently, April 2018.
It could be that your computer downloaded that "1804" update, and started to install it.
Does using the UP/DOWN arrows on your keyboard, or your mouse, allow you to change the display?

> I cannot see the mouse cursor on my screen— changed batteries, but still doesn’t work.
Can you try a "corded" mouse?
Does pressing the TAB key on the keyboard move the on-screen "highlighting" from one "field" to another?
In other words, press TAB, and then try the UP/DOWN arrow-keys. Repeat a few times, as the "focus" moves from one field to another.
