I recently bought a new pc and installed TSL, played until the hidden academy then remembered i didnt do any modding so i added some patches and now when i play i get an error pop up after a short amount of time playing, "The NVIDIA OpenGL driver lost connection with the display driver and is unable to continue. The application must close. Error code: 8.”

I unistalled and tried playing again without the mods but its still doing it. It's not at a certain point in the game or after a certain amount of time but it's certainly happening. I installed the mods again because if you save it every 5 mins and reload it again you can still play, just in an incredibly tedious fashion.

i have: CPU: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-2400 @3.10GHz Memory: 6GB OS Version: Windows Professional x64 sp1 Graphics Card: nVidia GEFORCE GTS 450 Driver Version: 275.33 OpenGL: 4.1.0 compatability

I tried the lowest graphics settings, adding the "Disable Vertex Buffer Objects=1" to the .ini file, making sure all the mods are compatable and reinstalling drivers and even back-tracking to older drivers.

I'm starting to lose it as i love this game and haven't been able to play it. Ironically thought the new pc would be my salvation. HA.

Thanks

Anyway, you might wanna try downgrading your graphic drivers to some older version. Old(er) games and new drivers usually don't get along too well.

sorry, didnt see that, Windows 7.

I've downgraded my nvidia drivers as far back as the earliest one they have on their website and still nothing.

after extensive searching online it seems that this only happens with the NVIDIA 400 and 500 series and, there are lots of fixes for individual systems but no universal fix to this problem. I'm not great with Programming etc. but this problem seems to happen a lot with photoshop and Brink. I have no idea what setting those two would have in common.

According to my Google search results for this error, it is indeed a NVIDIA-only problem. ATI users are not affected. Anyway, enabling CUDA GPU encoding / decoding acceleration results in the said error when running certain applications. Problem occurs even with driver versions 258.96 and 260.63. , which are newer than the one you got. Disabling CUDA apparently solves the problem. So, sniff through your NVIDIA control panel (or wherever) and see if you can find this CUDA thing and how to turn it off.

All right, let's try something else. After Googling some more, I found another possible solution on NVIDIA Developer Zone forums. Apparently, someone who has had the same problem managed to solve it by installing driver version 197.41. Perhaps the same version would do the trick for you as well. :)
