Photoshop error with the display driver

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -

I have a CS4 on my new 24-inch iMac and it’s really been awesome. I updated it to the latest version which is 10.5.6 and suddenly a message appears every time Photoshop starts:

“Photoshop has encountered a problem with the display driver, and has temporarily disabled GPU enhancements. Check the video card manufacturer's website for latest software. GPU enhancements can be enabled in the Performance panel of Preferences.”

I have never encountered this issue before I updated to 10.5.6. Any ideas why it’s giving me this error? Help please.

Photoshop error with the display driver


Which Display card does your iMac has? It might be one of two. NVIDIA or ATI.

There is a reason that you get this error. it is very common. Actually the Photoshop disables few features of the VGA in order to perform some functions. This is not a real type of error. You can just click on don't show this message again.

The Photoshop uses the OpenGL feature of your graphics card. Sometimes it crashes if it can't find it due to some problem. You can either turn off this OpenGL form the graphics options and then do your work until you download an update for it. If you want to do something about it see below

If you have the NVIDIA Display Card
Check the version of your card and the card series.
Go to the NVIDIA site and download the drivers. Here is a quick link to it.
Install them and then run the Photoshop.

If you have the ATI Display Card
Go to the ATI AMD site. Here is a quick link to it.
Download and then run the Photoshop.
