After the system upgrade to latest versions, I am facing this problem with Maya. Not able to work with it like before and when I try to save the document it throws me a fatal error message. Do I need to update the software too? Does the system upgrade affect the existing software in the system? Please help. Thanks.

Maya fatal error attempting to save in C document
The cause of Maya fatal crash you're experiencing is most likely connected with the latest NVIDIA drivers having a conflict with Maya's own Optimus driver. To fix this problem, go to NVIDIA Control Panel, click "3D settings", click "Manage 3D settings", click "Programs settings". At step 1 (select program to customize), add Maya and click "Apply" without making any further changes.
Now you can start Maya without a problem.
