Console inteface works just fine, you probably can’t see it because your resolution is to wide for the native 1080 x 1200p display.
Set Skyrim resolution to a 4:3 aspect ratio. Setting resolution directly to 1080 x 1200 would be best pixel-wise but there is a massive problem with some ui elements such as perk and item descriptions. I have yet to find a mod which optimises Skyrim for narrow resolutions.
In any case, you can always use the EdgePeek function (middle mouse button) to look around to screen areas you don’t normally see.
