I recently reinstalled XP pro on a Latitude D505 and when I entered the C drive I noticed this small issue shown in the picture below... If you cant see the picture this basically sums it up. When I enter the hard drive all I am able to see is just icons. No names next to them. Concluded the text is in white until I select them. How do I go about changing the text color for the icons? I have tried using the display properties and appearance tab. Any other idea?!:confused: Thanks in advance

I suggest that you try the "Details" setting for the files. "Icons" often have problems with text. What happens in the "Details" mode?

I switched the view to details mode. All of the text is still white until you just single click on the folder. Which turns the text black while highlighted... But all thats shown is the folder icon itself with white text matching the background.

Before we try a regedit, please check in the Display applet of Control Panel under the Appearance tab. Select the button on the lower right labeled Advanced, and in the drop-down menu box olease select Window. Although the space for the type of font is greyed out, the color selection button should be active. If not black, click the small "v" on the right of the color patch and choose black. Any change?
