NVIDIA OpenGL Driver Error: "Unable to recover from a kernel exception."


"Unable to recover from a kernel exception."


Error while processing Step 1. Initial Processing.



This error happens when the graphics card is selected for processing but the GPU performance is much lower than the CPU performance. The workload sent from the CPU to the GPU is overloading the GPU.


There are several solutions:

1. Remove the use of the GPU for processing in the processing options:

1.1 On the menu bar, click Process > Processing Options...
1.2 Select the tab Resources and Notifications.
1.3 Unselect the listed graphics card.
1.4 Click OK.

2. Increase the timeout to allow more time to complete the really tough rendering parts.

Warning: This may cause that the screen gets frozen sometimes when the GPU workload is high. For step by step instructions: http://answers.microsoft.com

3. Change the graphics card to a model more balanced with the CPU.
