Have recently downloaded Maya 2014 - student version. It worked fine when I initially downloaded it.
I am now getting a fatal error message when I open Maya that reads:
Fatal Error: Attempting to save in:
After I push OK, Maya then crashes.
Back to the crash. Have you changed anything on your system ? Installed new Nvidia drivers ? There is a known compatibility error with recent Nvidia drivers and usually Optimus enabled machines
Force Nvidia graphics on is one option, reverting drivers is another
There are a number of threads on the topic
Was there a CER crash dialog posted ?
fine by using my integrated graphics instead of the NVIDIA card. I have
actually had a lot of issues with my NVIDIA card and Autodesk programs,
including Revit 2013/2014 and AutoCad 2012 and AutoCad Architecture 2014.
Recently a new driver from NVIDIA has seemed to fix the crash issues I was
having with Revit and AutoCad, and they have been working okay with the new
driver for over a month.
The NVIDIA driver I believe is 320.4

the Nvidia conflict I was referring to was with a Autodesk common component.affecting a number of Autodesk applications. Both Nvidia and Autodesk were looking into what changed. I don't know if the latest Nvidia driver changed/fixed anything there.
for Maya you could try setting Enironment variable MAYA_DISABLE_CIP=1 before running Maya
