User Preferemces Screen won't work

Hey guys recently I have not been able to access the User Preferences in Blender 2.65 and 2.66. The User Preferences screen will pop-up, but the whole User Prefs screen will appear black and nothing else.

Try updating graphics card drivers
Try accessing the user preferences by changing the 3d view window to a user preferences window (bottom left corner dropdown). Then if the preferences window is visible try turning VBOs on/off and using a different window draw method (both in System section of the user preferences)
