After a few minutes of working with any simple effects or presets in Adobe After Effects CS5 I will get this error below every time:
"Your hardware configuration does not meet minimum specifications needed to run the application. The application must close. Please visit http://www.nvidia.com/page/support.html for help. Error code: 7"
Once this pops up I have to close the program without saving. Why am i receiving this error and how can I fix it? By looking at the specs below of my laptop I can't understand how I could get an error saying that my configuration does not meet minimun specifications.
Here are my computer specs:
Lenovo IdeaPad Y570
Intel i7-2670QM 2.20GHz
8 GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 555M with CUDA & dedicated 1GB RAM
NVIDIA driver version 184.108.40.20644
Turn off your onboard intel graphics chip in the BIOS or configure your Optimus driver accordingly. Seems like AE is switching the graphics driver in the middle of things or the wrong one is used to begin with (that is the weaker intel chip). also simply updating all drivers may make the problem disappear.
Thanks for the response Mylenium. I'll give what you suggested a shot and let you know how it works out.
