The first thing I would suggest if you haven't done it already would be to go to your Lightroom preferences, Performance tab, and uncheck "Enable Graphics Processor". If that isn't the problem then please clarify.
Sorry for the inconvenience.
As JimHess suggested please try to uncheck the graphic card and the reopen Lightroom.
Also please check if there is any update available of your graphic card y going to the graphic card manufacturer website.
Once you will update the graphic card driver, please check that graphic box again.
After that try to perform the batch processing.
Thank you for that suggestion.. I did try that and it didnt make a difference. Also its a brand new computer... Ive had it for like a week now.. and its been working fine... just started doing this this morning...I would think there wouldnt be any needed updates yet but I will check on that and see what happens...
Just checked.. and not seeing anything... Im currently up to date.. Tried reinstalling the graphics driver... that didnt help any either..
