I have a 15" macbook pro (mid 2009) and I am running bootcamp with windows 7 on it. Recently every time I open up Revit Architecture I get an error. The screen goes black and then it comes back to the Revit screen. A display error pops up and says "An error has occured while drwaing the contents of this window. This window shall be closed". Then at the same time a notification pops up at the bottom on the windows bar that says "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered. Display driver NVIDIA Windows kernel mode driver, wersion, 285.62 stopped".
Then after I click ok on the error message I get another message that says "A fetal error has occured. The applicatioin will be terminated. You have the opportunity to save recovery files for all of yoru changed proejcts."
I have reinstalled Revit Archtiecture and the problems still occurs. Please, any infomration will help.
what version of revit?
try going to the big R>options>graphics>turn off hardware acceleration
if that doesn't work you may need to update the video driver or upgrading your video card
turnning off hardware acceleration, will slow down your work on Revit.
I had this problem on my pc , having a Quadro VGA card and Xeon processor.
The problem seems to happen because a lack of power coming to VGA card , when using a Professional VGA , with Direct X 11 and 3D software (like Revit or even 3D games)
The solution I found in the internet , that you should update your VGA driver to latest version , and to change power options in windows system.
Control panel – power options . change option from balanced to maximum performance.
I did this , and I didn’t have any crash again.
