Hi all. Sorry to post in LW Community but I need help quick.
I'm on the road, working from a macbook in Windows 7 64bit.
Previously, lightwave worked fine.
I installed Adobe Cs3 yesterday.
I tried lightwave today. All viewports in modeler and layout are blank. Something is broken and I don't know what! I have GOT to get work done, and need my LW working.

Does anyone have any ideas?
I don't know if CS3 broke it, just added the info.
there is nothing in the viewports. no nulls, no grid, no nothing. toggling fullscreen doesn't help. changing viewport modes doesn't help. changing openGL options in LW doesn't help.

Is there something I should do in the Nvidia control panel? I'm reinstalling drivers now with the latest to try that as a fix.

I think this card is the 9600M 512mb.

any help would be huge.

thx!

BOOM!

nevermind. the nvidia update fixed it!
I guess I'll leave the thread up just for the sake of someone else searching.
