Hi , whenever i open maya it gives me the attached error . i've uninstalled it and then re-installed it , but later when i shut my computer and then re-open it the error is back , 

i'm using Maya 2014 student licence, Core i7 processor, windows 7, Nvidea Greforce 520 M 

i'd appreciate your help 

thanks

What video card are you running?  If you are running a Geforce card, can you try to run it is a default graphics mode?

Once you run in Intel Mode, quit, and run in Geforce Mode.  Does it still crash?  I know that a M card is on a laptop so it will be hard to upgrade hardware.

Do you have local admin rights?  Might also set an exception in your anti-virus.

Delete your prefs and start again.

 

C:\Users\YOUR_USER_NAME\Documents\maya\2014-x64

 

Open Maya first before opening the file.

My Nvidia is the default but i tried running it with the intel card and it is now working :smileyhappy:)) but my intel card is just 512 mb so i guess it won't handle large scenes :smileyfrustrated: but it solved the problem thank you so much :smileyhappy: but what should i do with my Geforce card ?

You could try installing an updated driver and see if it still crashes.  Otherwise, new video cards are really affordable these days.
