Windows 7: White blank window when changing to Basic Mode.

White blank window when changing to Basic Mode.

Hello guys,

I'm experiencing a problem with my Windows 7 Professional installation.
I have some programs that run in Basic Mode. And when the theme changes there is a blank screen on my far left screen. My other screens stay the same.
I'm using a GTX295 (182.50 NVIDIA driver) on a triple head to go with 3x 19" screens.

Check out this screenshot with my problem.

Can anyone help me with this problem?

It only happens when changing from Aero to Basic Mode.

Hi Relived,

I've never seen this before but I do have a question - can you reproduce this problem when using a standard screen resolution? That desktop screenshot is pretty darn wide... I'm wondering if the white space is at all related.
