Blank radio buttons

By pmaro ·
I have a user's computer (Win 9 where the radio buttons are blank, meaning no YES, NO X _ or anything showing in them. I ran system file checker, checked video settings ect. All appears to be in order. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Does this happen when the PC is freshly booted or after it's been in use for a while? If it is during a fresh boot then the problem is likely to be rundll32.exe. The end user probably probably isn't shutting down correctly and there are several issues with scandisk running @ startup. Run a complete scandisk prior to shutdown and reboot. If it still occurs then type "msconfig" in a run dialog box, and remove everything that is starting with the machine one at a time until the problem stops.

You didn't mention if it was all in Win98 or if explorer. But if in explorer go to settings control panel add remove and rebuild iexplorer. But my best bet would be your video drivers are wrong, reseat the card remove the drivers and install fresh one's
good luck

The "MSCONFIG" answer is not a bad idea. Before chasing your tail (like I have in the past), scan the HDD for viruses. I mean all files, compressed files, boot files and sectors,(the whole 9 yards). If that comes out ok then try the rest of the following. Restart Windows in Safe Mode.(While restarting hold the Ctrl key down, choose Safe Mode from the Start Up Menu). If your radio buttons are no longer blank then that would indicate a driver or an application that starts up with Windows is theculprit. For drivers you could step through them one at a time from the Windows Start Up Menu and see which one is the culprit. Also after Windows has started up you can go into MSCONFIG, click on the start up TAB and eliminate programs 1 at at time that start up with Windows to see if any of them are at fault.

Thanks for all the ideas. Here is what I did to fix this.
Went into control panel,display,appearance, clicked on the "OK" in the message box, which caused "3D Objects" to show up in the item box. I then set the color to black and it fixed the problem. Go figure.
