Hi - Sorry if I missed another reference to this topic, but I installed CSC on a new pc running Win 7 64 bit. I’m using the recommended monitor setting of 1680 x 1050 and find that the CSC initial screen is unuseable. White blocks cover some of the text on the left of the screen (in the red section). Anyone have any advice on this? Thanks …
Hey and Welcome!
I have CSC installed but it never gave this kind of problem. So my best recommendation is:
make sure that you have GPU dirvers installed. http://sites.amd.com/us/game/downloads/Pages/downloads.aspx for ati graphic cards
Official Drivers | NVIDIA for nvida graphic cards
Did you change display settings or your DPI settings. See attached image for reference.

Hi - and thanks - I’m using the graphics on an Intel i3 chip, so presumably the driver update advice would not be relevant to me - but yes, I have increased the Win text size to 150% (and have just noticed the warning "some items may not fit on your screen … "). I have not installed much software as yet, but have only noticed this problem with CSC and the new (to me) Comodo programs manager.
What I will describe is a bit off topic but important to know.
Intel i3 is your cpu (which stand for central processing unit), in other words, your processor and not your gpu (which standds for graphics processing unit). gpu is in a part of you graphic card. There are two ways to build graphic cards. One that is build in the motherboard, that where the cpu is, your ram, your harddisk, you graphic card(s) (nowadays you can have two) and other good stuff, which is so called integrated graphic cards and the other that is not built in the motherboard.
So please check if you have Intel, Nvidia or ati graphic card. If graphic card is from nvidia or ati then check my previous post for the drivers.
Actually, with the i3, the graphics are indeed inside the processor.

I don’t remember how it’s divided between the cpu and the graphic cards. but the cpu doesn’t produce the graphics (partially yes)
In this case graphics are integrated in the processor. It is a recent trend in CPU land. Read what the Intel website tells us:
This processor comes equipped with Intel HD Graphics, an advanced video engine that delivers smooth, high-quality HD video playback, and advanced 3D capabilities, providing an ideal graphics solution for everyday computing.
I assume setting it back to 100% “fixes” it?
This looks like a bug with the new GUI to me.
Did you look at the screenshot I posted? The CPU does indeed produce the graphics in this case…
to EricJH…First of all I want to thank EricJH for the link and for improving my knowldge; it seems that I’m a bit out of date
That must be something new. I have seen that AMD is beginning to do similar thing and that will be called APU(APU will work as CPU and as GPU).
to HeffeD… I did look at the attached pic. I didn’t get that i3 also works as gpu. Sorry for that
to spex… I hope you find my first post here useful in general and I am sorry for giving misleading information; I haven’t seen this new trend but for older computer it is as I have described.
