Wow, what a mess. Corrupt Operating System? Malware? Hardware damage? Video card or driver problem?

 

Hopefully someone that's seen this before will be along soon and offer some help.

Does the same issue occur (text not being correct charset?) in the BIOS? If is also displayed in the BIOS, it will be a hardware issue.

 

If not try this:

  1. Go to "Control Panel" -> "Region and Language" -> "Administrative" -> "Change system locale..."
  2. Change the locale to the one you're having problem with, and then change it back.
