I have some problems with my Revit 2012. It won´t work with the hardware acceleration turned on because it doesn´t like the intel hd graphics integrated card. When I try to open a new or previous project (with hardware acceleration turned on) the program delivers the message: 'An error occurred while drawing the contents of this window. This window shall be closed.'
In my laptop I also have an Nvidia GT 540M 2GB. At first Revit reacted to that card but after updating the driver it instead reacted to the intel card. I have tried the recommended 188.8.131.521 driver for the intel card.
Do you know anything to solve this?
I have the same issue (though the program is working) and the same video card on the laptop dell xps 15 with 8gb ram and i7 2630.
You cannot say that such a new card as the nvidia 540m could not support shader model 3. The problem is that revit does not recognize it all and I have to turn off hardware acceleration because it works very slow. Rolling back drivers does not help much because it still does not find the card. I attach an image with my setup.
I knew that would happen.... but still I did it and guess what - Black Screen I get. So I restarted to see if nvidia is going to be used instead - still no it used some king of restoreVga... any other ideas??
i believe you have to go into the bios and disable something called Nvidia Optimus then reinstall the nvidia drivers again
i had to do this on the newer dell precision laptops
