Name of Graphics Adapter Type & GPU is shown as random characters - Please Help

I've recently installed the Windows 10 Technological preview, and after installing all necessary drivers I noticed that the display adapter type, shown in 'display adapter properties' found in 'advanced display settings', is shown as random characters.

I realised this while playing some games, Minecraft shown here for example, which displayed random characters too rather than the name of my GPU, and thought this was just a bug until I found the same thing in the properties menu shown below.

Is this something I should be worried about and how do I fix this?

I've already tried reinstalling my graphics card drivers and even all the other AMD/ATI related software but the random characters are still shown...

My laptop has a quad-core AMD A6-3420M CPU and an AMD Radeon HD 6520G + 7470M GPU, if more details are needed please don't hesitate to ask.
