Screen - Black on launch


Recommended Posts

Posted · Screen - Black on launch

I've run into a seemingly unique issue, and I'm not sure if there's a known fix.  Upon launch, I'm unable to see any of the content of the Cura app..



This is occurring on 4.13.0 and 4.13.1.  I had run 4.13.0 for months prior, but nVidia has upgraded their drivers recently which may be the root cause.


Wondering if there's a known fix for it.

    Found the cause... If nVidia Physics engine (span across multiple screens) is enabled, your app corrupts the display.  Not sure if it's worth fixing or figuring out, but the easiest fix is to disable Physics span setting in the nVidia control panel when using Cura.

    With issues like this where there are multiple displays in play, it is also worth the effort to try unchecking the option "Restore window position on start" in the General preferences in Cura.
