Why is adobe premiere cs6 workspace replaced with full black screen?

Nov 3, 2013 8:30 AM

Windows 7 Pro.  AMD 3.2 Ghz hexacore, 16 Gb RAM, tons of HD space. Nvidia GPU 470 with Cuda. Dual screen

Adobe Premiere pro CS6.

Usually Premiere works fine and i have no problems. However sometimes when I work, I suddendly get a dual black screen. No matter where I click with mouse, the monitors remain black.

The only way I found to go around is to call Task Manager, then the task bar opens again at the bottom of main screen and by clicking on Premiere icon (which I permanently have there), I can get again my workspace.

Did others get the same issue, which can be a real nuisance?

    Right click in any open area of the Windows desktop

    Select NVIDIA Control Panel from the popup window

    Select SYSTEM INFORMATION at the lower left corner

    Driver version should be the 1st line in Details

    I have a GTX285 using driver 296.10 and Win7


    Once you post your driver version, someone may be able to tell you if you need either a newer driver, or an older driver because your driver has a "known" problem
