Blender 2.81a virtually inoperable due to screen garble.
Closed, ResolvedPublic


When I open up Blender, the splash screen starts off as greyish static before turning into total garble. When I click on the Restore Down button, the problem seems to go away, but when I drag the side edges of UI, it just keeps getting worse until it starts working again but only in the tiniest proportions. The problem persists as I attempt to explore files to save and open and User Preferences. This problem only occurred recently.

Below is as much essential info as I could gather about my laptop:
Windows 10 OS
Acer NITRO AN515-42
AMD Ryzen 5 2500U with Radeon Vega Mobile GFX, 2000 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 8 Logical Processor(s)
8 GBs of RAM
9.03 GBs of Total Virtual Memory

Is it my computer or is it Blender? Lowering my display resolution from 1920x1080 briefly solved the problem.

Do you have the latest drivers? See if any update is available, update them and try again. Also, attach the reports you get by running debug_log_cmd.exe file in the same directory as Blender.

That did it! =D

Thank you so much!
