Blender Doesn't Work in NVidia Graphics Card?

Hi Fellow Blenderheads,

I just bought a new computer. It’s got 8Gig RAM, 2.3 Ghz of speed, Intel Core 15, NVidia Optimus, and Windows 8 64-bit. Most everything on this comp has worked. But I encountered a strange problem with Blender.

Anyway, I installed Blender 2.68a on it just last week and it worked fine when I tested it. However, Windoze put on an update. I open Blender today and it doesn’t work. All I get is a big white screen. I uninstall it, then I put on an earlier version, 2.65. Same thing.

Why is this problem occurring, and what can I do to solve it? Is there a fast workaround (I hope lol)? Does it have to do with NVidia, or with the Windows update? Thanks in advance! :slight_smile:

Windows update possibly update the Nvidia driver also, the work sometimes not well.
Get the driver from Nvidia for your GPU and make a clean install.

Cheers, mib.
