Windows 7: Error: "Primary Display's Adapter Does Not Support NVIDIA 3D Vision"

Error: "Primary Display's Adapter Does Not Support NVIDIA 3D Vision"

Hi

I got a NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M grafical card in my notebook. However, most of the time I use the Intel integrated graphics (Ci7-2670QM processor). All NVIDIA drivers and NVIDIA applications are installed too.

When I double-click any 3D picture file (*.jps file), the NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer is then called; however, the app doesn't seem to find the display adapter of nvidia and generates an error:
"primary display's adapter does not support nvidia 3d vision".

I tried to fix the problem using the NVIDIA's Control Panel by setting the gt540m as the preferred gpu, and rebooting the computer a few times, but it does not help; the error keeps on popping up. I've also associated the gt540m as the preferred gpu specifically for the /NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer/ app, but also that does not help, not even after a few reboots.

I read somewhere one should install the NVIDIA Optimus app but I prefer to solve the problem manually and not let the problem be solved in a hidden way by some other app---Optimus in this case.

So, any suggestions how I should start tackling the problem?

Thanks in advance,
Johan

What is your monitor? And how is it connected?

Asus Notebook K93SV, Windows 7 HP , 64-bit. Just checked the BIOS but I do not have the option to put the NVIDIA card as my preferred GPU.

However, in my nvidia control panel the preferred GPU has been set to nvidia, also for several specific apps, like the IE 64bit version, the preferred GPU is nvidia. For the rest of my apps I left it on the Integrated Graphical Processor (IGP).

I got the Nvidia GPU indicator in the notification area (bottom-right) and the IE is indicated to be on the Nvidia GPU. So, all looks ok at first sight. But when I run NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer it goes wrong.

Btw, do you have any knowledge of test or benchmark software, which I could use to test the gt540m card and its drivers? Maybe I put the problem into a smaller corner, thereby making it easier to identify the problem.

3dMark is a very common GPU testing program as well as FurMark.

These two will greatly stress your GPU/CPU and I would recommend keeping an eye on your temperatures during the process using software like Precision X.

Tried out FurMark and temp went up to almost 90 degrees C. The GT540M is working alright. I ran FurMark for something like 5 to 10 minutes. The fan didn't blow that much though, strange at a T=90C. FurMark seems to be 32bit app, I would be more interested in a 64bit version, but couldn't find anything on the net. Both for 3dMark and Precision X one needs to register before dowloading, so I didn't try any of those 2.

Now, the main problem of mine is the error message I get from /NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer/ when trying to open any *.jps file (3D picture files). I've been googling a bit and found some (interpretable) comments about 3D hardware and error messages when trying to run 3D apps.

My notebook has only one simple standaard 2D screen. I don't have any 3D TVs or monitors connected to my notebook.

Could it be that the absence of any 3D hardware (and 3D display drivers (adapter)) is the reason for having the error message? I think (but not sure) that the app /NVIDIA 3D Vision Photo Viewer/ probably sees the 2D adapter of the main (and only) flatscreen notebook monitor and notices that this is not a 3D adapter for a 3D monitor/TV; could that be the reason for the error message?

I find the error message pretty interpretable due to lack of technical detail about what exactly should be undertaken to get rid of the error message.

I'm sorry if i'm too late. Yeah, you can't get 3d vision on your standard laptop display. You have to connect to the external monitor via DVI or HDMI connection. VGA connection won't work either.

Does that mean that the external monitor needs to have 3D capabilities? Or does 3D vision works normally (without the error message) on any ordinary 2D external monitor too?
