What could have happened

Last night prior to that little patch all my mods seemed o.k. , then I logged onto WoW and it said it had to patch, so it seemed to take a minute so I left it running. Came back a few hours later and it was still at 0% , I had to force WoW to shut down. I ran the updater again and it seemed fine.....but everything is not fine. In game I a checkered landscape, chat bubbles above npc's are all garbled, and input into any chat is garbled while typing until I hit enter..and sometimes it's still garbled, mailbox frame and other frames are all pix-elated, icons in my bag are all garbled and at vendors ( along with tooltips).
If I turn all mods off it seems o.k. , I have tried the elimination process but it's not pinpointing. I tried deleting my wtf folder and still getting the problems. I ran the Blizz repair, still nothin.

Only thing I can see is reloading WoW....

Update your video card drivers.

Need help finding the model of your video card? The easiest way is my right-clicking your desktop and go to Properties/Personalize > Display Settings. It should state it there.

No worries

Just remember that WoW is dependent on updated video drivers. Be sure to check your video card manufacturers web site often and check for updates.
