Splash screen then stopped working error. Cura 2.3 help?

Recommended Posts

In all likelyhood, uninstalling/reinstalling will do nothing. The problem probably lies with the data C:\Users\[you]\AppData\local\cura, and that does not get touched when uninstalling/reinstalling.

 

Thanks for responding but this didn't resolve my issue. I tried a couple different things with deleting the Cura appdata file each time with no change.  Thanks anyway.

Is there a stderr.log file in C:\Users\[you]\AppData\local\cura? If so, could you paste that into pastebin.com and post or dm me a link?

 

Here is my stderr.   Thanks for looking over it for me.

OpenGl fails to initialise. What GPU do you have? Is it possible to update the driver for the GPU?

Are you perhaps operating the computer over a remote connection?

 

No remote connection. I think I know what's going on here. I ran Cura on this machine last winter before I broke down (The Microsoft popup window wore me down) and replaced Windows 7 with Windows 10. Intel didn't upgrade the drivers for Win10 for this chipset. I'm stuck with Microsoft's idea of drivers that pretty much tie my hands.  I ordered a new graphics card.

Thanks for the help.

*Update*

Installed a new 1gb graphics board. While I was inside the machine I added another couple gb of memory and upgraded the power supply to eliminate it as an issue.

A few settings in bios, a couple new drivers (not from Microsoft).....

Cura starts!

Thank you ahoeben and LePaul for responding to my post, and ahoeben for pointing me in the right direction!

Time to make stuff!!!

    • "Back To The Future" using Generative Design & Investment Casting
      Designing for light-weight parts is becoming more important, and I’m a firm believer in the need to produce lighter weight, less over-engineered parts for the future. This is for sustainability reasons because we need to be using less raw materials and, in things like transportation, it impacts the energy usage of the product during it’s service life.
