    Expected result:

    I am able to use Construct 2.

    I am using nVidia GeForce 540M. And drivers are updated. Yet I can't use it. Also the previous version r139 worked well in my system but r152 is not working. <img src="smileys/smiley19.gif" border="0" align="middle" />

    Browsers affected:

    Chrome: no

    Firefox: no

    Internet Explorer: no

    Operating system & service pack: Windows 7 Ultimate (64 bit)

    Construct 2 version: Construct 2 r152 (64 bit)

  • This is always a graphics card driver crash, not a Construct 2 crash. Perhaps the latest drivers for your card are still broken. You should report it to nVidia.

  • Already reported, but no fix for this yet.

    r139 is working well but r152 is not.

  • Got this as the response from the nVidia Support

    Hello,
    
    Thanks for contacting us. There are a few options available to upgrade NVIDIA drivers for notebook computers. 
    
    1) Primary Source = Notebook Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM)
    
    The primary source for graphics drivers is from your notebook OEM. These drivers have been fully qualified by the OEM to work with their specific notebook customizations. NVIDIA does not control the schedule for updates to these OEM drivers. 
    
    2) Optional Source = Direct from NVIDIA
    
    If you have an 8-series or higher GPU, NVIDIA offers reference notebook driver updates on NVIDIA.com for most GeForce M series and Quadro NVS series notebook GPUs.
    
    Please note that drivers direct from NVIDIA are provided �as is� and do not carry any guarantees, warranties, or support. NVIDIA recommends that you check with your notebook OEM about recommended software updates for your notebook. OEMs may not provide technical support for issues that arise from the use of drivers on NVIDIA.com.
