"dead space" during gameplay

So I dont even know where to begin on a fix, and its a little bit difficult to explain. Any time I play a game (playing on steam) there are parts of the gameplay screen that apparently the game doesnt recognize. If you happen to try and “click” a command on one of these random spaces, the command doesn’t work and the game mutes…almost as if you have paused it. Scrolling a little bit in any direction and clicking in the exact same spot on the map turns the music back on and executes the command as it should. During the “muted” period, gameplay appears to continue on as if nothing happened (which has led to my demise on more than a few occasions. Sometimes it appears to be worse than others, and sometimes I dont see it happen at all. I’m at an absolute loss!

Please help, thanks in advance!
