My problem - I can't enable GPU playback within my preferences. Ok, I can turn it on but it becomes disabled each time I restart pre stating that my driver is not compatible with pre. My computer is a Sony Vaio (i7 with 4gb ram) with a nvidia geforce 310m card (1gb). My reading so far had me update the video driver...I'm now at 188.8.131.5267. Any other suggestions? Thanks in advance for any help.
Some video drivers just don't work with with Premiere Elements, svaio.
Are you using the 64-bit version of Windows 7 by any chance?
Sometimes ATI and nVidia eventually release drivers that fix this problem. Meantime, all we can do is wait.
Yes, I'm using windows 7 64 bit.
That could be it. So we're at the mercy of ATI and nVidia until they create a driver that's compatible with 32 and 64 bit Windows 7.
