I have recently installed Microstation Connection as part of my college subscription. The installation has been successful and my laptop is very well served in terms of hardware. It is a gaming laptop for a short description. However, as I try to open the DGN files from the example lists, my views tabs are either completely blank or completely black. Nothing appears on the screen, not even the xy arrows. Any thoughts on the issue.

Thanks for the prompt feedback.
As I installed MicroStation CONNECT it did install along with the main program all the ancillary software, including DirectX. So I figure the installer chose whatever it needed to install to make it work. Nevertheless, the version installed at the moment is DirectX12. I am using Windows 10.
I have tried doing some troubleshooting such as forcing the win8 version. Then, the software initially displayed a project on the view tab as I opened the DGN example file. However, as I tried to manipulate the view window, it froze and stopped working completely. But no other project even gave a hint toward working.
you question looks like written by marketing team: How to write text without any informational value.
This is engineering CAD forum, so exactness is expected. And when technical issues are discussed, to provide a maximum of detail information is required.

No such product exists. I guess you mean MicroStation CONNECT Edition (usually shortened to MicroStation CE). But, please respect the best practices and specify its exact version/build number (you can use "version" key-in to obtain this information). There have been around 20 versions of MicroStation CE released so far in last few years and its not clear whether you use some old one or current Update 16.1.

Sorry, but is totally useless information. What notebook (model)? From what manufacturer? In what HW configuration? Is there integrated graphics card, external, or both?

Why you do not share a screen capture? Is the rest of MicroStation GUI fine or it is also displayed with some issues?

Unfortunately, you shared zero information, so it is hard to guess.
Recommended first steps, when there is problem with MicroStation graphics, are:
