I'm currently using about an 8 year old Lenovo thinkpad laptop as my more powerful desktop computer suffered heat stroke and basically died. So while I slowly buy the parts to build a new machine I'm forced to use this laptop.
One issue I have with the laptop is that it has issues with VRC. If I start VRC directly without tinkering with my hardware there are vital text areas in VRC that don't show up, such as the F2 weather button labels. So I found out that if I disable the onboard video graphics chip, start VRC, then re-enable the graphics chip again everything works fine. Or at least it did till I started using the ZME sector file.
I've attached a screenshot of my VRC screen. As you can see many of the text labels on the screen are incomplete or have garbage characters or miscellaneous letters in front of them. This wasn't happening with the sector files from ZNY or ZOA and I seem to remember that even an older version of the ZME sector file didn't have this problem (I think I found it on AVSIM a while back).
It's not the end of the world. I can figure out where the airports are. But it does make it harder to learn the VORs since the 3 letter identifiers are messed up on the screen.
Thanks for any help anyone can lend.
This is mainly for Richard Sill but if anyone knows about this issue and how to solve it by all means please respond.
