Blank Ebook reader

Ever since I did the upgrade, when I try to view a book with the built in viewer, it shows up as blank. This is true for Epub and Mobi.

Sadly, on some old computers with Windows 7 and certain graphics cards,
Qt WebEngine, the new component calibre uses for rendering in the viewer/editor
either renders blank screens or has lots of rendering artifacts. This can
sometimes be fixed by updating graphics card drivers. If that does not
work, you will have to remain with calibre 3.48 until you are able to
update Windows. Note that Windows 7 is being End-of-lifed by Microsoft in
January 2020.
Old version of calibre are available from: https://download.calibre-ebook.com/

You can simply uninstall calibre 4 and install calibre 3.48 instead, all your
books/settings/plugins will be unaffected.
