UE4 Editor permanently broken by graphics driver update

Hello, I’ve encountered a really strange glitch… I was working on my project and everything was fine, then I decided to reinstall my GPU drivers, as i was having a problem with obs. After doing a clean reinstall I returned to find that the editor seems to have been corrupted - every action was taking ages, most tooltips and menu’s were showing just as black rectangles, and almost nothing was interactable. I reinstalled both the epic games launcher and the engine itself, and the problem is still here… If anyone knows what to do with this, short of reinstalling my whole OS, please help. I would much appreciate it. Thank you in advance.

Well, it seems to be rather simple in the end - the particular driver I installed seems to be incompatible.
EDIT: switching to 4.19 seems to solve the issue
