NVIDIA OpenGL Always Crash

Jul 2, 2013 11:15 AM

Hello Everyone


is there Anyone here who can help my problem? I'm previously using VGA card Nvdia GTS 260 if i'm not mistaken and when i use it for rendering in AE moreover it contains a bunch a layers, DOF, blur etc, suddenly a message box appear says "the nvidia opengl driver detected a problem with the display driver and is unable to continue. the application must close. error code: 3" and i ask to my manager to replace my vga with the brand new one. i replaced it with geforce 660 ti and it is still crashing.. T.T even more often.. i have upgraded the drivers, make power management mode from adaptive to prefer maximum performance, play around with registry and i did anything what i found on google.. and the funny thing is, it crashes when i dont touch the keyboard and mouse at all. if i need to pee and leave them for awhile, it always crashes.. but when i keep using it, still crash but not to often..


is there any solution without format the system? T.T

    Are you rendering using OpenGL?  Don't.

    I am getting the exact same error also, just built several new systems, all are win7, 16 core, 64GB ram, GTX680-4GB video with latest CS6 and latest Geforce drivers from July1. I just tried turning off hardware acceleration of the layout panels in preferences to see if that will resolve it.


    It have also been getting the error in Premiere, but i think it is with dynamically linked AFX comps in it so maybe it is still an AFX issue.


    It has even done it in premiere while not touching the mouse, i just walked away and came back and it was crashed.

    I tried downgrading my Nvidia drivers twice, i started with 320.49 and went back to 314.22 and now I am getting a different error with more of an explanation. It gives me Error code 7 and basically says the gfx card is working too hard, it lost connection from the OpenGL driver to the display driver and surpassed the windows 2 second timeout.

    Interesting, I have 4 of these new machines and gfx cards so i thought to try a different card and the crashes went away. I assume the video card is bad and have returned it.
