Hey, Brand new too the forums.. I ran a quick search to see if there were any other related posts but I couldn't find any so I thought I'd take a shot.

I have been playing World of warcraft on my laptop with no issues for a while and since this last patch I haven't had any issues. Now when I log on the borders on all my buttons have disappeared completely. The icons in my action bar are non-exsistant. However Im still able to use the skills/actions and play the game without any "lag" or video issues. I haven't had any luck finding a driver update for my video card as I've been told this could be causing my problems..

Here is a copy of a DXDIAG I ran today. Please help me find a propper video driver update or even a basic solution too my graphics problems would be amazing. Thanks very much!

While in game try /reloadui . if that doesn't work try copying the What the... folder out of the Warcraft folder and then deleteing the files inside the original. This way if that was not the problem you can move them back into the WoW folder as if they were never removed.

Jenny and Heron are on the right track IF you use addons. Are you using the default UI or do you have addons installed that modify your action bars?
