    Default Fonts unreadable -

    On my newER desktop PC, I am having the occasional font display problem - bound to be simple to fix but not obvious to me.

    Any suggestions, please?

    Is it in high contrast mode? Try changing the theme back to the default Windows one and see if that sorts it.

    It may be a driver issue , roll back or update the vid driver

    This week I had to roll back a Win10 driver update (came in through Windows updates) as it was screwing up the display in browsers (on a 2 month old laptop)

    I have checked the drivers but no luck.

    It seems to be only on the Ookla speedtest app - see this screenshot.

    Have you tried a different browser to see if it's the browser at fault?
    Which one do you use?
    Ryzen 2700X, 16Gb DDR4RAM, 512GB M.2 NVME SSD, MSI GTX1070

    If its ONLY happening in that app , then the obvious answer is its only that app.
    Do you have any display Themes set ? or anything other non standard with the win10 settings ?

    That Win10 app It gets some bad reviews , just remove it use use the browser

    Now that sounds like the right answer - linetest.nz works fine in my browser.

    Why waste time on something I don't need? Thanks guys.
