IE 9 not displaying any content on Windows Vista

I have a laptop running Vista HP, SP2 32 bit

IE8 is fine, as is Google Chrome.

When I install IE9 (either through WU or a download) the page is always blank. Web pages load correctly, and the title of the page is shown in the tab, when viewing the source the correct source is there, you can even move the mouse over the blank content area and see the URLs of the invisible links that you are moving over.

Running IE9 in No Add Ons mode makes no difference!

Any ideas?

I found the answer myself, after a lot of googling.

There is a tick box in options labelled, use software rendering rather than GPU rendering.

Ticking this fixed the problem.
