Botswana Bob is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Can't see font, and video streaks

Ok, I've got a PC with dual HDDs that doesn't show any font unless it is bold. On top of that, any time they play a video, the screen starts to streak down like paint on a wall.

I thought It might be the video card and the font files, but the problem's system wide.

Anybody have any suggestions?

That's what I thought, I just wanted to get a second opinion. Thanks.

Never seen the font issue, but yeah the streaking is most likely the video card.
