While setting up a different XP computer (Dell 430 with XP SP3) I found certain PDF documents were not displaying with proper colors. Were mainly in B&W with just a little color. The same file displays properly with various versions of Adobe Reader on other computers.
A file that would not display properly is (London Tube Map).
I've uploaded a JPEG of what the bad display looks like - If you know the London Underground map you will see the problem!
Problem exists when viewing as an Internet Explorer 7.0 plug-in or with downloaded version of same file.
I checked all Reader preference settings particulary Accessibility - all seem the same as on a working computer
I updated Reader from 8.1.3 to 9.2 - problem remains.
I uninstalled / re-installed Reader - problem remains
I updated my Intel GMA graphics driver - problem remains
Any idea? - Thanks
Could be insufficient RAM or hard disk space. It could be a driver issue. Try turning off any video acceleration.
I have plenty of RAM an Disk space.
I have tried turning off graphics acceleration - Display Properties - Settings - Advanced - Troubleshoot - None + disabled Write Combining all to no effect.
I had have the latest Dell supported 945GM Graphics driver. However, I did download and install a much newer driver directly from Intel. Intially got message to say 'this driver not validated for my computer', but did a work around using an 'install from disk procedure'.
New driver works but the PDF display problem remains as before.
I then deinstalled and reinstalled Adopbe Reader 9.2 yet again, but still problem remains.
Anyone got any further suggestions?
