Update Visibility Problems

Discussion in 'Windows Update' started by PGP Protector, Jul 11, 2007.

  1. Ok I've got a strange update problem.

    Clean install on a HP Pavilion ZV6000 AMD 64 3200 1.5G Ram 40G hardrive.

    Trying to Test vista out right now.

    Vista will download and install the updates on shutdown, but I can't check /
    see the updates menu.

    If I go to Control Panel / System & Maintenance / Windows Update. All I see
    is a refresh Icon, a green box / checkmark & two question mark icons. No
    Text is visible.

    The updates appear to download, but I can't see any text in the Windows
    Update page. (Other control panel pages I can see the text though)

    Anyone ever see (or not see ;) ) this problem ?

    And anyone know the solution to it ?

    Really trying to test it out fully before I wipe my main HD for the actual
    install on this laptop.

  3. (cross-post added to Vista General)

    Is the text there at least? E.g. does right-click, View Source show it?
    More importantly do the controls work? E.g. can you tab to them
    (to find them) and use them?

    Perhaps it is a symptom of some kind of Accessibility feature failing?
    E.g. try using High Contrast to see if it changes the readability of the page.
    (Default toggle: LeftAlt+LeftShift+PrintScrn)

    BTW I don't use Vista. These ideas are based on XP but hopefully
    they would still apply to Vista. Cross-posting to a Vista NG.

    Good luck
