Inventor 2011 UI Graphics bug.

Ok, this issue is best explained with a screenshot.

 

Basically most of the user interface graphics have gone wrong.  The text is blacked out, and the icons are mixed up or greyed out. If the model uses a surface texture image then that image if effected too. 

 

I'm hoping someone has come across this issue before. We've got support tickets in with Autodesk and our local support provider, but nothing so far.

 

We've tried the obvious stuff (latest service pack, graphics etc), and tried the Classic Interface, but the result is the same. The issue started occurring while I was using INV2011, but I've also got 2012 installed, so I checked that and the result is the same...

Has anyone got any suggestions at all?

Is there anything you can suggest to resolve the issue? Or is the cause and solution unknown? At the moment I can't use Inventor at all.

 

Thanks

Try going to Tools>Application Options>Hardware tab and set to lowest setting.

Tried all the options under Application Options > Hardware, and there was no resolution. Also tried Classic and Ribbon UI, but no help there either.
