Blender was working fine a few days ago, but suddenly starting Blender up yields a screen like this. Screenshot of Blender on my system with its new glitch, the startup screen - for some reason - looks like the original image was wrung up into a twisted version of itself, diagonally skewed pieces of the view are stacked vertically within the window.

For some reason, the glitch doesn't occur when Blender is left free-floating: if I set it to fill the screen or either half of the screen, the glitch happens again. I can't get into system preferences or anything, either, because any pop-up from Blender has the same problem but irreversibly.

I don't know what changed. The only marginal thing I could think of is I installed a new library to my Anaconda IDE for Python, but I have the zipped Blender: they each have their own bundled version of Python.

I have a Windows 10 64-bit O.S., if that helps. But again, I don't know why this glitch is happening now when Blender was fine just a couple days ago. I have tried uninstalling and reinstalling Blender, but it doesn't help...

Edit: I have tried downloading a fresh copy from Blender's website; I've tried ZIP bundle AND msi executable downloads; I've tried multiple versions of Blender; and I have tried x32 vs x64 variants of each version. The glitch has persisted throughout.

  • $\begingroup$ @ViplavPrakash yes; in re-installing Blender, I downloaded a fresh copy from Blender's website itself. I even tried a more recent version of Blender, yet the glitch still happened. $\endgroup$ Commented Apr 28, 2020 at 5:53

everyone!

I'm the same person as the asker - had to make a new account because Stack Exchange said I hadn't used their email to confirm my email address (because I never got one).

I'm not sure why it was screwed up to begin with, but Blender works on my system now. I updated the drivers of my Display Adapters in the Device Manager.

  • $\begingroup$ This also solved my problem. It's definitely a display adapter issue or something to do with the graphics card independent of Blender because I had the same issue for Photoshop as well. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @AJD. I'm glad it helped! Weird that this sort of thing is affecting Creative Cloud as well... I wonder what makes them so similar. $\endgroup$ Commented May 23, 2020 at 1:17
