I have not played x-plane 10 in a while, and I ran the x-plane updater ( there were no updates available ), before I tried to launch the game. the game loads fine, I can select my aircraft and airport etc, but when it loads and I should be viewing my plane cockpit, all I see is a blue screen. My computer doesn't crash, and I can hear the audio, and can select the menu options at the top of the screen. I have tried several things including upgrading graphics drivers, changed various display settings, ran as administrator, tried the 32-bit .exe file.......Anyways, I was just wondering if anybody else has had the same problem and might know of a cure. My computer details are below

Windows 10 64 bit- Latest update installed

Nvidia GeForce GTX 960 + GTX 680 dedicated to PhysX. ( I have tried disabling both, and running separately )

16gigs of ram

Looks like X-Plane is not installed to the desktop. Here's a great post on why this is important & how to move/fix it. This situation can cause all kinds of weird problems. Please try moving your install to the desktop and see if that fixes the issue.

Thank you for the reply jroberts

I ended up purchasing another copy of x-plane 10. This time it was the steam version. I only have limited bandwidth where I live, and this chewed into it, but this version works fine. I just hope I can move my old purchased aircraft mods to the steam version. Have not tried it yet.

Thanks again
