How do I check to make sure that I have the latest driver installed? Before I posted the thread, I disengaged the GPU from the preference dialog box. As I mentioned in my original post, that is what caused the image to stop opening black and to start opening in gray and white checkered. Does that indicate something? I'm not sure all I know is it's certainly didn't solve it.
Since posting, I tried installing the 2017 version through CC. Even though that version worked before, it now won't. I did reinstall CS6 and it works. I'm about to the point of cancelling CC.
