Flight Simulator X: Kneeboard blackout.

I have this nagging problem in FSX on W7Beta when you bring up the Kneeboard (Shift+F10), all of it is blacked out.

I also noticed some instrumentation completely blacked out when flying at night with cockpit backlights turned on, but only on certain aircraft.

Any ideas?

It sounds like it could be a video driver problem. Have you tried updating your drivers?

Also, you could try running it vista or XP compatibility mode to see if it helps.

it's ie8-related. Same happens on Vista, but there at least you've got the option to roll back ie7

Where can I find a better driver for a NVidia GTX260 than the one through Windows Update?
