Windows 10: Google Maps is black screen on Map or Satellite Setting Since upgrade Solved

    Google Maps is black screen on Map or Satellite Setting Since upgrade

    When I open Google Maps, I get the street view photos at the bottom of the screen, but the map itself is a black screen in both street map and satellite settings.

    Any ideas?

    Thank you,


    Edit: Latest Win10 64 drivers are installed; Nvidia GeForce GTX 750Ti

    Exactly the same with me, all other online maps work fine. I posted this 2 days ago and no takers. You have same card as me too!!

    Upgraded to Win10 last night and today noticed the same problem. I have an nVidia GTX 560 Ti. Also upgraded to latest drivers with no fix.

    Two fixes / workarounds I found:

    As a workaround, the map worked fine in lite mode ... full mode gave the black screen after about 5 seconds.

    The full fix I uninstalled the nVidia 3D vision drivers from my system as I don't do 3D. Now Google Maps work in full mode.

    If you need the 3D drivers, I did note it put addins into Firefox (which is what prompted me to remove the drivers) ... you may be able to just disable those addins.

    Disabled the 3D plugin on Firefox and voila! All is good. Thank you.
