Blender 2.8 (Beta) Shading Tab - Look Dev/Render mode All objects are black

Blender 2.8 (Beta) Shading Tab - Look Dev/Render mode All objects are black ( the 2 display spheres at bottom also ) Is there a reason this is appearing like this? Other tutorials I watched the left sphere is metallic. When I un-check the Shadow ( after selecting the light ) in Render Mode I can see the objects. Something seems weird here.

What OS and video card? Latest beta download?

It should not be like that.

Windows 10 AMD Athlon 64 X2 Dual Core Processor 3800 RAM 4.00 GB
64-bit OS
GeForce 9500 GT (Graphics card)
Latest Beta. Re-installed yesterday. Same issues.

Well, that’s pretty old (but not as old as I thought at first, sorry). It may technically be supported but maybe consider investing a few dollars in a video card newer than 11 years old.

Oww… Zoot Gavin Scott, not to get in my feelings & all but I thought I had some pretty good specs. I just got this new pc a few months ago. But they did change my Graphics card from my old pc. U may have hit the nail on the head. I appreciate your time & sharing your knowledge. Any suggestions on new Graphics Card that will be compatible with Blender 2.8

This was a bug, check: T65137

Hopefully it is fixed in new builds. Try downloading new builds and see if it helps. Otherwise report it to above link.
