    Text that disappears from menus


    Hey, I have a strange problem with text that disappears in all kinds of software I use. Sometimes it disappears completely and sometimes becomes strange symbols as in the picture attached.

    I have Windows 10 on a stationary computer.
    I scanned for viruses and everything look fine.
    I even did a Fresh Start action that erased all the software from the system and updated the windows to the latest version, did not help.

    Does anyone know what it is?

    Hi Alfasi. Welcome to the TenForums @Alfasi

    I would reload video drivers. First I would remove old using DDU. I would also have video drivers downloaded and ready to install.

    What version and build are you on? Windows key + R, type winver, enter.

    Have you tried

    sfc /scannow

    from a command prompt(admin)

    If it does not complete successfully run two more times.

    You could also try an inplace repair.

    Repair Install Windows 10 with an In-place Upgrade

    Always recommend backing up data.

    Don't bother a big waste of time.

    I would do this. It fixes many issues. I did it on a older computer that was crashing at it runs much better. Just make sure you use DDU to remove and reinstall your video drivers and disable Windows Update so it does not try to download there old POS drivers. You can enable it after.
