    I have this same exact problem after installing a Nvidia GT1030 graphics card, driver v432.00. Irfanview 64 bit v4.54. Has there been a fix? Should I update the driver? Thanks.

    Since this seem to be a problem with graphic drivers, try updating your drivers. I would expect a new card to come with the latest drivers, but there may be many reasons why older drivers are supplied.

    Thanks. Updated to the latest Nvidia driver from July 2020, v451.67. No joy. Still will not display video until I open up a second instance of Irfanview. Then it works. Is there a known good Nvidia driver I should try? I'm using a DP cable. Would switching to HDMI help? Please advise.

    EDIT: The problem is solved by switching to 32bit version of Irfanview. So from my point of view, this is a bug in 64bit Irfanview and not a bug in the Nvidia drivers.
