    problem with nvidia gts 450

    anyone using the same gpu? the card is not listed as one of the supported graphics cards for revit. my problem was, whenever i start revit 2011, clicking the wall button will make the view window black upon hovering the cross hair over it. after that the whole pc screen turns black and a pop-up message will appear: "display driver stopped responding and has recovered: display driver NVIDIA windows kernel mode driver version 270.61 stopped responding and has successfully recovered". however this doesn't seem to happen when the HWA is turned off but i don't want to do that. anyone experiencing this issue. i would really be grateful for anyone who can resolve this. thanks

    specs:
    windows 7 64 bit
    intel core i5 2400 @3.10 GHz
    8gb RAM
    palit GTS 450 sonic edtion

    Hi Barry, have no first hand experience with the GTS450 card, but the card not being listed as one of the supported graphics cards is usually not a problem. Most issues like this is solved by trying different driver versions... So if you´re not using the most recent driver, you may wanna try the newer once first, and if that don´t work, try some older ones too.

    Best of luck - And welcome to the Forum BTW

      i had that problem when testing out some drivers
      i found that disabling hardware acceleration did not appear to have any difference effect on cpu load

      and having hardware acceleration disabled did not appear to have any graphical problems as you are having

        I am running gigabyte GTS450's in the new training machines without this issue. We are using driver version that came with the card that is 259.22.

        Hardware acceleration is on.

          Hardware Acceleration

          I'm having issues seeing if my hardware acceleration is on with the gpu, can anyone help me with this? or does it even matter?

            It matters a great deal. Click the big "R" in to upper left corner > click options > click the "graphics" tab > check "Use Hardware Acceleration (Direct 3D®)"

            Is that what you where looking for?

              It does matter. You can read some of what hardware acceleration does for you here:

              Graphics Options - WikiHelp

              In addition to the itmes listed there hardware acceleration allows for rendering materials to be applied to surfaces in realistic view and allows you to enable ambient shadows in the graphic display options of the view. Without hardware acceleration turned on niether of these is possible.

                  Hi Lazar, I think you'd have better luck with your issue in a "gaming hardware" forum. This Revit Forum is for hardware having to do with Autodesk Revit, an architecture/engineering application.
