Thank you for the response.
Seem to be a graphics hardware issue that has not been solved yet.
(Depends on the graphics hardware and driver on the PC.) 

Please try one more thing.

By windows explorer, go to the folder C:\octave\Octave-4.0.3\bin.
(please modify the folder path if you did not-default install)

Launch octave by doubly click, octave-cli(.exe) then see the results.

This skips to launch octave-gui and I would like see whether this is an issue 
of octave-gui or not.

BTW, what kind of graphics hard ware and driver do you use?
To see information,
(My PC works on Japanese, so that name menu item may not be correct)
1. Right click on the desktop
2. On the menu, select display setting
3. on the windows 10's setting menu for display, select detailed setting for 
4. select view property of adapter.

You can see the detail of Graphics adapter

For my case

Information of adapter
kind of tip : Intel(R) HD Graphics Family
kind of DAC : Internal
characters of adapter : Intel(R) HD Graphics 2000
Information of BIOS Intel Video BIOS
