    Information when hovering is distorted with black squares

    The pop up information when hovering over an icon and in some files is unreadable in Win 10. See screen images.

    Thanks for the tip, but the updated driver did not solve the problem.

    Thanks for replying

    After the above mentioned driver update, that did not correct my problem, I found the next version update and that one did not improve the problem. Then I found what seems to be the very last version issued and this one seems to have solved the problem I was dealing with. So I'll mark this thread as solved.

    I was wrong. At 8:15 est I restarted the computer to install updates now its't right back to were I can't read drop down menus to select the options I need. I'm totally lost as to how to solve this. Any ideal will be appreciated.

    I have discovered that when the computer is restarted this problem continues, but when the computer is powered off and then restarted the problem is gone. So anytime after a restart is required I power off and reboot.
    Still like to know why a restart is creating this.
