I've recently upgraded by desktop computer so it now has Intel H67
Integrated Graphics built into the motherboard and I have an

have two monitors, the primary an 24in Iiyama connected via hdmi cable
to the mother boards graphics and an older 17in Iiyama connected via
VGA (no other choice) cable to the Geforce card.

After a brief check of the BIOS settings, I got it to boot with the
primary monitor being the H67 integrated graphics

Booting up Debian (unstable) the graphics displayed fine on the
primary monitor and the secondary monitor gained a few diagnostic
messages during boot (seemingly related to its graphics card) but
nothing else.

Can you please show the output of "dmesg | grep -E '(drm|nouveau)'"?

I've swapped back to trying to use this driver and my NON transparent icon problem has disappeared, but I am left with this issue with the nouveau driver; Quite which unsupported chipset it is refering to
