After recent updates, all of the text display areas are highly distorted such that they cannot be read. The graphical distortion does not extend to the 3D renderings however. I suspect my problem lies with my graphics display, as I have had other problems with the Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset. I have attached a screen shot depicting the graphical distortion I have been experiencing. Any additional information as to how I could resolve the problem would be greatly appreciated.


My Systems Specs are as follows:

OS: Windows 7 Version 6.1.7601 Service Pack 1 Build 7601
Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo P8600 @ 2.40 GHz
64 bit system
BIOS: Dell Inc. A06, 4/23/2009
3.00 GB RAM
Graphics Display: Mobile Intel 4 Series Express Chipset Family

Have you tried updating your graphics drivers? And do you have any other applications which use OpenGL which you can test to see if they have this problem as well?

I found updates for my graphics drivers, but the updates didn't fix the problem. As for OpenGL programs, I'm not sure. I do have similar issues with using windows aero.
