Photoshop problem with display driver and GPU was disabled
/confused.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':confused:' /> Hi, when I open photoshop CS4 I get this sign

[b]Photoshop has encountered a problem with the display driver, and has temporarily disabled GPU enhancements. Check the video card manufacturer's website for the latest software.
GPU enhancements can be enabled in the Performance panel of Preferences.[/b]

I could not fix that problem in photoshop preferences, because GPU settings are disable.

I whem to NVIDIA control panel, and I chose the best setting for photoshop CS4... Now I get no such sign and photoshop is working much better, But GPU settings still disabled in photoshop preferences (perhaps I have not fixed the problem as it should)

I have a GeForce 8600GT video card, and a nForce 750a SLI motherboard

Download an older driver.
Download an older driver.

My Opinion is no more important or right than yours. But if your using the LATEST drivers, go back to the prior set.

Piss Poor tech support blame all issues on drivers and assumes that your an idiot. Find a set that you know worked and see if the problem exists still.

""Don't f with it if it ain't broken!""

Constantly updating drivers is a good way to F'up the whole system.

THanks! I will do that, nwo I know that by installing the latest drivers I get a black screen opening windows...that's not happening with the old drivers, but the original driver from the video card has a conflict with Windows XP 64 (with the video card I will have to use the new driver)

Some day I will install windows 7, but first I have to get versions of the programs to work there.

as has been with windows 7? /turned.gif' class='bbc_emoticon' alt=':turned:' />

For what it's worth, Adobe Photoshop CS4 is not supported under Windows XP 64-bit by Adobe and hence, neither by NVIDIA. I doubt testing by Adobe was performed on Windows XP 64-bit. Best bet is to upgrade your PC to Win7 x64 as soon as you are able to.

Please send me a PM if I fail to keep up on replying in any specific thread or leave a driver feedback: Driver Feedback

Don't bother wasting your money on upgrading with the intent to resolve this issue. I bought a 64 bit win 7 xps 15 with 540m 2G, i7 2.4 & 8G of ram and I have issues with every program I use it for.

For those of you who are intending to use any of the following programs I would seriously consider trying before you buy as I feel that I have just wasted a little under £1000 all because of the 'high-performance' GPU:

AutoCAD 2010 - 2012
3DS Max 2010 - 2012
Rhino 4 -5
Photoshop cs5
indesign cs5
MAYA

On the plus side sketchup works fine haha.

Come on Nvidia this is substandard!!!

I now get this error in 2012 (the original post is 2010):

Photoshop has encountered a problem with the display driver, and has temporarily disabled GPU enhancements. Check the video card manufacturer's website for the latest software.
GPU enhancements can be enabled in the Performance panel of Preferences.

On a more modern setup...

GTX 560 Ti, driver 295.73
Photoshop CS5 64-bit (12.0.4)
Windows 7 64-bit (all service packs, etc. installed)

What gives? How can I get Photoshop to use the GPU properly under this configuration? Are there settings tweaks I can make in the nVidia control panel? Or is this related to reported (on the Inernet) with GTX 560 Ti cards and OpenGL (and if so, is the forum-suggested fix of downloading OpenGL 3 beta a viable fix)?
