User Preferences- Blank screen

Post by GreatOne » Sat Apr 28, 2012 8:00 am

Hi,
up until 2.59 I had no problem with Blender, but from 2.6x I cannot view my user preferences; the screen is just blank. I tried re-installing but nothing changed. I have a 64 bit system, and both versions worked fine before. I hope someone can help me please, I have a project to finish. :!: Thanks

This is a problem with OpenGL vs your computer. Usual fixes are:

updated video driver from card manufacturer

turn off eye candy like compositing window managers and desktop effects.

Also, try changing the window type via the editor type dropdown widget rather than the File->User Prefs menu. Then you can play with the Window Draw Method in the System tab.
