New Year, New PC, New Error Message

    I bought 2 new PC during the December holidays
    and suddenly I see a message which I have never
    seen before.

    '''Photoshop has encountered a problem with the display driver, and
    has temporarily disabled GPU enhancements.
    Check the video card manufacturer's web site for the latest
    software.'''

    The display card is a GeForce 7050 and I have updated the driver.

    I am running CS4 and CS4 had no problems on my older PC
    and older display card. (GeForce 5200)

    I think I am busy picking up problems with my 2½ years old AL1914
    ACER screen, (causing animated flickering *only sometimes) but there
    is no way PS can be so clever knowing this.

    What would be the reason for the error message?

    BTW (off topic) I bought this Acer for the sake of a '3 years on site
    guarantee', but firstly I have seen in forums people complaining about
    Acer's customer service, and secondly, the animation (sometimes
    very bad) happens once or twice a day, and some days not even.
    Proving this to a Acer consultant may be difficult.

    I think that PS didn't take (much/any?) advantage of GPU
    acceleration capabilities in earlier versions. I was a beta
    tester of cs4 and they were crowing about this -new -
    feature... I'd report it to Adobe.

    Thanks Jason. I'll sort my problems out with my Acer screen
    and then with Adobe. I should say, after display of this message
    regarding disabling GPU enhancements, I do not notice any difference.

    The message continue by saying "GPU enhancements can be enabled in the
    Performance panel of Preferences".

    I went to the Performance panel and surely, GPU enhancements was
    disabled. I ticked 'Enable OpenGL Drawing', closed it and opened it
    again, and it kept on being enabled. Frustrating thus, but not
    serious.
