You do not delete an error message, you delete a text file - Display driver & Baddriver http://forums.adobe.com/thread/1328594
You also should not count on Windows Update to give you correct display driver information
Go to ATI Driver Autodetect http://support.amd.com/en-us/download/auto-detect-tool
If you are getting a message regarding your display card,
a. Verify you have the latest version of the video card driver installed according to the web site of the manufacturer of your video card (in this case it appears to be AMD). If the message persists after that, then you delete the BadDrivers.txt file. I am assuming that you are using Premiere Elements 11 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit. If that is the case, you find that BadDrivers.txt file to delete
Local Disk C
and in the 11.0 Folder is the BadDrivers.txt file that you delete.
Be sure to be working with Folder Option Show Hidden Files, Folders, and Drives active so that you can see the complete path.
A new BadDrivers.txt file will be generated by the program once you open Premiere Elements 11.0 again.
However, I wonder about all this since you say that "this worked before and not now". Have the properties of your program's source media changed since you used the program last? For that matter, what are the properties of your program's source media and what is your project preset (set by you or the program - See Edit Menu/Project Settings/General)? Also, please verify your computer operating system...Windows?
Thank you for the link John I got the new update that the source gave me and now it works just like it did before. Apparently Adobe is samrter than my computer knowing it needs an update and my computer doesn't even know it. thanks again.
Well it's fixed. the laptop though is using windows 7. nothing had changed it had only been like 6 days since i had used adobe premiere elements. Also I don't have a folder saying Program Data once i go into the local disk c. all I have is progrma files and program files(x86). That's why i couldn't delete the text before when I tried to look for it. Thanks though if just needed an update.
Glad to learn that updating your video card driver version was the answer to your issue. Good work by you and John T. Smith.
But, just what is your computer operating system? Is that Windows 7 32 or 64 bit? If it is 32 bit, that makes a world of difference in where one goes looking for files. As I wrote earlier in your thread:
I am assuming that you are using Premiere Elements 11 on Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit.
Since you say that your Local Disk C does not include Program Data, but does include Program Files and Program Files (x86), I am left to conclude that you are working with a 32 bit operating system.
You realize that under those conditions, your Premiere Elements 11 is a 32 bit application running in a 32 bit system with all the limitations of 32 bit system, including maximum supported installed RAM = 4.0 GB of which 3.0 GB or less of that are available. Premiere Elements 11 is a 64 bit application when run specially in Windows 7, 8, or 8.1 64 bit and as such can take advantage of the 64 bit resources.
It is windows 7 64 bit.
