M7844 graphics rendering problems

[ Edited ]

Hi guys - I have a problem with a M7844 desktop we have - one of 2 identical systems running Win 7 and Office 2010 - all  updates applied.  Runs an Intel G41 graphics chipset.


The display on one monitor isn't rendering correctly and it almost looks as if some programs are running in Safe Mode with large pixellated icons on Outlook 2010 ribbon, white background to task bar (should be grey), some popup messages looking like safe mode versions (large type, whiite background).  Bizarrely Chrome browser is fine which makes me wonder if it's a MS OS issue.


I've updated the graphics drivers to the latest Intel release but this hasn't cured the issue.  I've run Lenovo checks and the only issue detected is a SMART test that times out which could indicate a drive problem (hope not and don't see how that connects to the display problem).  Run chkdsk, virus scans, CCleaner and nothing fixes this frustrating problem.


Any ideas out there??
