Lenovo T530: Photoshop CC 2014.2 can't detect Nvidia card (340.84)

2014-10-11, 7:00 AM

I have up-to date Windows 7 x64 SP1 ENG version of windows.

Here is some screens to illustrate the problem

The problem poped up 2 or 3 revisions of Nvidia driver ago with original version of Photoshop CC 2014. As you can see updating program and video card drivers to date, do nothing. And yes, i tried to launch PS with mouse context menu and forcing to use Nvidia chip. In control panel of video card PS is assosiated with Nvidia card too.

 

These glitchy computers drives me crazy, maybe this is why i quit IT...

 

Any suggestions?

I've found solution by myself. 

 

When launching PS i've noticed, that GPU activity icon in system tray shows up weird process: sniffer.exe, instead of prospective PS. It seems, that this file somehow interfere with a whole system. Sucker located here: 

C:\Program Files\Adobe\Adobe Photoshop CC 2014\sniffer.exe

 

You can rename or even delete it (without aftermath), then launch PS. After this weird manipulation software will recognize Nvidia chip, but you have to wait additional 5-7 seconds in a stucking freeze. 

 

Same delays awaits you when you try to launch external plugins, which are using GPU acceleration.

 

So, all these actions, is a half measure. I am sit tight on PS 2014.2 and rolling back to old Nvidia drivers 333.11 (all revisions between 333.111 and 340.84 have the same problems, or it is glitchy Adobe?)

 

Remember the rule: oldie, but goldie.

This is interesting, I have a similar problem that I just started a thread, thank you for this, I am running win 8 so I will have to see if this fixes the problem when I go home! 

 

If not maybe you can provide me more details. I hate dual graphic card deal, such a pain for users.

Situation does not changed since those times. Even with newest 2015 version.The most stable driver to work with is 333.11.  It gives real acceleration. Other versions simply don't work or bring a lag in processing.
