What sort of problem is this ?

Hi guys, recently I just let my laptop stayed overnight cause I was downloading something. This morning, I found out that the menus turned to be invisible - at least not until you scroll and play with your cursor around them. What sort of problem or programme that crashed here ?

I used to have this problem a while after letting my computer stayed up though for idk how many days back then when I was using my 8 year old HP laptop. Now my laptop is Dell XPS Studio 16.

Thanks for your time ! ^ ^

Almost looks like the context menu font color is white? Do you have a recent restore point from before this started? Might be easiest way to fix this. A Guy

Hi apparently, it's fixed whenever you restarted your computer. Just that it happened for some reason when it was left over night, one out of the many nights. Must be some clash i suppose.

Based on this and your post about the game crashing in another thread, I'm going to say you have video card/driver problems. Be sure you are running the latest drivers for your video card.

How do you check if the drivers are the latest for my video card ?
