When reviewing images in the grid view, the star ratings do not always appear. Sometimes they do and sometimes they don't. They show on the filmstrip at the bottom, but not consistently on the thumbnails. I'm using LR classic, Windows10, hardware graphics acceleration is off.

Do the menu command View > View Options > Grid View and make sure that under Expanded Cell Extras, both File Name and Rating are selected.

Assuming they are, you can try resetting LR's preferences:  https://www.lightroomqueen.com/articles-page/how-do-i-reset-lightrooms-preferences/. Sprinkling that magic fairy dust fixes a surprising number of problems.
