It is much appreciated if you label your problem rather than just saying HELP! That way those that are familiar with the particular problem will find it easier to respond.
Not sure what "just wiped my computer clean with windows 7 and i installed photoshop again" means.
Did you have Win XP before and install Win7, or did you reformat your HD?
Did you install Photoshop from disks or transfer settings from a backup drive?
What kind of video card do you have? Try disabling Open GL in preferences.
Do you have latest version of PS installed?
Hey sorry bout the lack of info, but basically i had windows xp and i decided to install windows 7 over it to start new. And then i reinstalled the photoshop cs5 disk on it. My video card is an NVIDIA GeForce6200 TurboCache(TM)
and OpenGL is greyed out already
When you went from XP to Wn7 on the same machine did you reformat the HD first?
It sounds like a video card problem. Have you updated you driver to relect the new OS? Use the manufactctures web site to do this.
im not that savvy when it comes to computers but i dont think i reformatted my hard drive. What i did was delete the existing one and continued to install wn7
Also i did install the latest driver for it but nothing worked
I am not a computer expert, but it is a good practice to reformat, and maybe necessary., to reformat HD. Deletting leaves a lot of stuff behind, but would not swear this is your problem.
The fact that Open GL is grayed out means you video card wll not support it. This can be just the need of a new driver or at worse need a better card.
You may have to use a NiVida program to erase all the drivers it install the new one did not work.
Ok Thank You, I'm going to try this out. I just dont know if i need a new graphics card because i was able to accomplish all my animations with the same graphics card prior the switch from xp to wn7.
its still the same :/
What version of photoshop are you using? Is it up to date?
i was able to accomplish all my animations with the same graphics card prior the switch from xp to wn7.
OK, the video card is the same, but what about the driver?
What make/model of video card?
What is the number/date of your installed driver?
Is that the latest, for your new OS?
The video driver is very important, and is specific to your card, and also to your OS.
Good luck, and please let us know a bit more.
