dropdowns are shadow instead of textboxes

By rich-----longberg ·
when I right click on the file edit view buttons the text boxes or drop downs do not appear. the drop downs that are normally full of options do not show up. the only thing I see is the shadow or outline of the box. what is happening or how do I fix this??

Video Driver...

I've seen this happen with corrupt video drivers. I typically boot into Safe Mode, remove the video driver, reboot and let it re-install. Or download a newer driver if one exists and install it.
