Windows 7: font colors gone and web buttons missing

12 Dec 2010   #1

Win 7 Pro
font colors gone and web buttons missing

Help? Anyone seen this before? I believe this to be some software or driver issue but am not sure, could be hardware I guess, I don't think it's a piece of malicious code though...
1) Font colors don't appear in MS documents like excel, word, powerpoint although I can look at the properties of said characters and they claim to be colored.
2) colors show in Paint and other offline operation seems normal though I haven't exhausted the possibilities.
3) Web pages all have missing buttons and background pictures like little GIF files and the like, for instance no "Add to Cart" button in Amazon although I can scroll the mouse over where the button should be and detect that it is there, but hiding. Same problem w Explorer or Firefox.
4) The word "Help?" at the beginning of my post should be some other color than black, but shows up as black on my screen.
Lenovo 510 x64 PC // Windows 7 Pro // i7 CPU // 8GB mem
NVDIA NVS 3100M 512MB // all updates applied
Attempts at looking at problem:
1) Lenovo diagnostics say all is fine.
2) Avast, Malwarbytes, HouseCall all report no problems (am using ZoneAlarm too).
3) Hardware Resources seem to all check out fine
User experience:
1) Give me a DOS, XP or Linux machine and I know what I'm doing.
2) I'm totally lost with Window 7.
Any ideas?:
Am I in the right forum? Any help is of course greatly appreciated!
