Everything else seems to be working fine after adding a second monitor to my Windows 10 setup. I can drag application windows from one monitor to the other, for example, and the mouse moves between them OK.

However, when I launch Google Chrome, it opens as a completely black rectangle. Please see pic. Since I cannot see what I'm doing in Chrome, not sure how to approach the problem.

EDIT: Actually, I removed the original video card and monitor and installed different video card and two other monitors.

EDIT2: I clicked on the top right corner and the black rectangle closed. Now, when I try to open Chrome, it is a white rectangle.

  • Is this a desktop or a laptop and which model? Does this happen on both monitors? Try to disable hardware acceleration in Chrome. – harrymc Jun 12 at 17:27
  • Did you install drivers for the new card? – GabrielaGarcia Jun 12 at 17:28
  • I assumed the card was auto-detected and drivers were applied without me having to do anything, since the NVIDIA dialog (desktop context-menu) let me set the resolution without issue. – mrblint Jun 12 at 17:31
  • @harrymc: Desktop. Problem on both monitors (Samsung SyncMaster) Hard to disable acceleration in Chrome when I cannot see what I'm going. is there perhaps a command-line setting to do this? – mrblint Jun 12 at 17:33
  • Windows does not have the same drivers as from the NVIDIA Driver Downloads page. Try to download and install your driver, preferably using Option 2 on the page. – harrymc Jun 12 at 17:36

Windows does not have the same drivers as from the NVIDIA Driver Downloads page.

Download and install your driver, preferably using Option 2 on the page if you can. If not, then define the video card and download the software. Install it and reboot, even if it doesn't find compatible hardware. In case of a problem, do that while booting in Safe mode.
