So I continue to get emails and blog posts about issues with the High Sierra Web Drivers. I tried to log on yesterday and tell you that you were imagining things but after I installed my 121 update, I had same trouble !!!
I'm still not sure what the issue is, I have noticed that when I have the "white dock" problem it isn't that the drivers aren't loaded. I see them as loaded and I can run 2 displays at once and I can even run Uningine Valley. HOWEVER, a dead giveaway that there are issues is that moving windows results in redraws that don't include everything inside. Also, the Valley scores are about 1/2 of what they should be. Also, everything is clunky. (not very scientific, I know) But the solid white dock is the most obvious thing.
Anyhow, I tried re-installing the 117, 120, and 121 drivers. No help. I re-installed HS and tried 114, still white dock. I did PRAM reset and ran Supplemental update. No love.
Only after I did this twice have I gotten the 117 driver to work correctly again. At first it wasn't, but when I opened the Preference Pane for "Security and Privacy" there was a notice that it had blocked something from Nvidia from loading. A quick "let it load" and restart and I was off to the races. And I'm embarrassed to admit that I'm too frightened to run 120 or 121 again. I don't have 1/2 a day to track this down. I sent a note to Nvidia tech guys, hopefully the culprit is found.

Thanks for posting this. I thought I was losing my mind (still unable to get it work). Which Cuda driver are you running with 117?

Thanks for the info. I'll continue to try to install 117 and hope for the best until a fix arrives.

Could the "White Dock" issue be because the "Reduce Transparency" in System Preferences > Accessibility > Display is checked?

I don't have it checked. Also, my Cuda dependent applications are not working correctly. Something is hosed.

It's apparently a Library Validation issue

Hmm. Mine still is not working, but I've never had a notice in the Security Preferences.

Thanks for posting this. Got me thinking in the right direction.

MVC Dave! I want to kiss you! Thank you for this! I've been searching for an answer for months.

I'm not having any problems with 121 on my GTX 960, I have the CUDA drivers running as well.

I would hold off on macOS 10.13.1 (17B48) for the WIFI fix.

The 10.12.6 security update busts the drivers too
10/31/2017 08:02:49 pm
Not sure why you would not expect that. Nvidia will have an update soon.

I have NVIDIA GeForce GTX 970 4 GB on OS X 10.13.1. I installed the new Nvidia driver (for 10.13..1), but doesn't work. I tried PRAM reset, but Graphic card works only with OSX driver, not so good.
11/1/2017 05:25:08 pm
So are the new drivers safe to install?

Dave - any “official” word on whether SIP should be enabled or disabled during installation of web drivers? I am holding off on upgrading my 4,1->5,1 to HS until the performance, GUI, and other issues get worked out but I have heard conflicting reports about what role SIP might play in all this. (You flashed a 980 for me that works WONDERFULLY under 10.12.6).

Comes in silver gray color and liken most of the charging pads it has a rubberized circular surface which prevents the sliding off of the mobile device
