Cura not working with graphics driver update

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited) · Cura not working with graphics driver update

Hey there, 

Just wanting to ask the wider community if anyone has a fix or found a fix for my problem that I am experiencing. I have been using cura for years and havent experienced any issues with it and really enjoy it, but when I updated my geforce gtx 1660 in my laptop that I use for my slicing i ran into issues with cura. I can open cura just fine but when I go to click the file dropped down menu tab or any of the other tabs, the software locks up and I cant use it. I have tried back to cura 4.5 and had the same issues. I uninstalled and reinstalled graphics drivers and that fixed it the first time but then when I came back the next day I ran into the same issue. I tried the same exact thing and it didnt fix it this time though. I dont wanna give up on cura because it is the slicer that I am most familiar with, so a solution to my problem would be most appreciated!
