SL Viewer color picker showing only black


I keep having this strange problem where the color picker in SL Viewer become black. For example, if I try to create a box the only color option is black. The chat becomes black as well so I can't see what I am typing. This happens every single day, but relogging fixes the issue. Does anyone know what the problem may be and if there is a permanent fix for it?


I'm using the newest SL viewer, my pc specs are:

CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-4770S CPU @ 3.10GHz (3092.84 MHz)
Memory: 12228 MB
OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 64-bit (Build 18362.356)
Graphics Card Vendor: NVIDIA Corporation
Graphics Card: GeForce GTX 760 (192-bit)/PCIe/SSE2

Windows Graphics Driver Version:
OpenGL Version: 4.6.0 NVIDIA 416.34

We ask that you use the viewer's HELP->About... to collect all the viewer pertinent information. You have provided only a small subset of the information we need.

The NVIDIA driver you are using is old. You might try a newer one, or aka 436.30.

Have you checked that this happens in other regions?

Have you reinstalled over the existing install?

Thank you so much for your help! I do often switch my graphics preferences from low to medium to take a quick photo, I think that is what has been causing this problem. I am going to uninstall and do a clean install, as I have recently reinstalled over the existing install (when prompted to by the SL Viewer) so that could be causing issues as well. I appreciate your taking the time to respond to my post!
