    Oil Paint Filter "unknown graphics processor error"


      When I try to use the Oil Paint filter in Photoshop, I get this error message:


      "The filter you were using encountered an unknown graphics processor error that caused an unexpected exit. Check the manufacturer's website for the latest software."


      I have updated both my system and Photoshop. When I'm at work on a newer machine the filter works great, but I've been working from home on a macbook from 2007 and it doesn't work. I can't afford to buy an ENTIRELY NEW laptop simply to use this filter.


      Below are my mac and graphic card specs - is there anything I can do?
