Am I missing something?

As a matter of fact, yes, two desktop backgrounds!

Hi,

 

I'm an happy user of Fences on a three monitors system.

Until recently everything was very fine with the software but since I upgraded to the latest NVidia video drivers, I have to disable Fences to see the background pictures of my second and third monitor! The background is always available on monitor one, with or without Fences. Any ideas?

 

Thank you very much.

 

François

If all was 'happy' before...then simply roll back to the earlier nVidia dreivers that were not a problem.

Especially with Graphic Drivers it is NOT always ideal to have the newest and latest.  They typically will fix problems you might not even have, or have noticed...but add new ones you DO notice.

With those drivers the rule is... "If it ain't broke...." ...

I'd like to point out that people who use Windows to play games are quite frequently updating their video card drivers.  In the gaming world the "if it ain't broke" model is replaced by "you get better frames per second by staying on the latest drivers".  Especially true with graphics drivers.

Quoting Asml8ed,

Yes they do....and more often than not it is a meaningless exercise.  For every speed/function improvement there's the VERY COMMON introduction of bugs adversely affecting other facets and/or other games.

I have lost count of the situations just on these forums where 'roll back to a previous driver' has been the CURE to 'my system keeps crashing/going black/whatever when...."

I will stick by the adage "When it ain't broke." ...

Quoting Jafo,
With those drivers the rule is...

Just a minor exception...older drivers are less secure than updated ones, so one should update software and drivers. If the updated one causes real problems, though...there might be other factors at play that should be investigated.
