    When you did the security update, you changed to the 10.11.6 (15G1212) version.
    This makes the previous WebDriver-346.03.15f04 obsolete, luckily a new web driver is available (346.03.15f05).
    Install it and you are back in business.

    ADVICE: keep a copy of all revisions of the web drivers for you Mac OS version.

    WebDriver-346.03.15b01 will also work after the security update, and in my case also automatically updated to the new 346.03.15f05 version.

    The web drivers only work with a specific build number of the operating system.
    When the build number changes (because of an update) the web drivers must be updated.
    Obviously the new web drivers are not available at the same time as the OS update.
    The answer is not to apply updates until the web drivers have been updated.

    Check macvidcards.com to match web drivers to build versions.
    Alternatively you may update the web drivers through the Nvidia preference pane once they are available.

    No.1 working fine off of DVI... Did a few tweaks last night including flashing BIOS to F20 and updating to the latest Clover. Had to edit config.plist per the OP.

    Many thanks to both you and Pilgrim - after reading your post I did a search for the driver mentioned and found a BETA that I was able to install and from there update to the 346.03.15f05.

    I am always wary of updates but had no idea a 'security' update could change the version on the OS thus making the graphics driver obsolete! Live and learn - all back up and running now.

    Thanks again :)

    Everyone - make sure you clone your existing config before you update, it will make things much easier as you can revert back and try again if something doesn't work.

    Why are there two different builds of Sierra 10.12.2 - 16C67 and 16C68?
