Text disappears when editing

When I edit my text it disappears. I have attached an image of the problem. This only affects my machine in my company - I have checked colour settings with others and theirs are the same as mine only theirs works

 

The text is set to white/black colour 7 and the sheet layout is set to white. I have tried different text colours and I still can't see them

 

As you can see from the top image I have a background mask that is set to the drawing sheet colour which is white

 

When I double click in the text to edit it the text disappears (bottom image) as if the mask is appearing in front of the text which it shouldn't do.

 

The only way to be able to view the text is to switch the background mask off - but I want to avoid this as I have to keep switching it on again.

 

I get the same problem if inserting a new table and having to edit the cells. However here there is no way to switch the background mask off as there is no button that I can see to switch it on and off

 

Is there a variable somewhere for sorting this out?

All seems to be working now - AutoCAD crashed while trying to exit and text works when I reopen the file?

 

Most odd?
