Is this just when opening Maya, or is it a specific scene file?

I would start by renaming the prefs folder (forces Maya to recreate new) and cleaning the system temp folder.

thanks fleabay, but both I already tryed before like billion times :/ deleting/renaming prefs folder is advised everywhere around forums as first.. I tryed delete entire "maya" folder from Documents, too, but still no go.. :/
also I tryed upgrade/downgrade video drivers, somewhere I read that triple buffering in graphic card settings may be causing this, but I have it set to OFF as default.

You know, Im still thinking about this and it dont make any sense to me.. I can reinstall entire maya, it will AGAIN works for two-three days and error comes up again.. funny is the day it crashed, it was at evening, but before at morning I was working with maya with no problem..

Is there a plug-in that you enable some time after installing?

actually there is such a plugin.. Craft Director Studio (trial version), because I need it to finish my work I started (animation of two car race). Do you think this is causing it? if so, than why the problem apperas after few starts ?

EDIT: I tryed righ now to reiinstall maya and not to install any plugin, and still get the error on startup.

Is there a CER report that you submitted that can be searched for ? Something unique, email

Have you installed a recent Nvidia driver ?

Is your laptop Optimus enabled ? Can you turn off the auto switch and enable Nvidia discrete only (bios/hardware switch) and try running Maya

Not 100% sure, but if you reinstall, the prefs folder still remains, which is where maya knows what plugins to load. Not all plugins install themselves in the maya program folder and I don't believe that uninstalling maya removes files other than the ones that itself installs.

Again, try renaming the prefs folder and don't enable the plugin.

asi I said before, renaming/deleting prefs folder didnt work for me and so I did at last reinstall, but you re right, if you reinstall, the prefs folder remains.

thanks, your post brought me to idea to try it run with integrated intel graphics, and voilá - it seems working . Im curious for how long it will last to the next error Yes, I send a CER to autodesk (twice, but I dont rememeber the ID number), and yes, I have latest nvidia drivers
i ll keep this topic updated

Did you update the drivers at some point before this started happening? Maybe you don't need the latest drivers?

my drivers are being updated automatically so I can not detrmine certain version when this started happening. but I tryed in past some driver downgrade and it didnt help.. :/
now when Im running maya with intel graphics it works, but sometimes it simply decides to crash, like when I saved a settings preset for Sunlight it crashed with same error.. so its pretty unstable now

Hi Shadow,

I have the same Problem occuring. But in my case, I deleted parts of the temp folder, bevore the phenomenon appeared. Maybe it causes the same problems, as if I had a new Windows Version installed.

But: As it happened with Maya 2012, I uninstalled that version and then installed the 2014 version. As you already mentioned, Shadow, Maya 2014 worked for a few days without any problem. And now - out of the blue - it crashes again.

Preferences deleted: check
Maya reinstalled: check
shouting loud and angry in front of my monitor: check

It must have a relation to that temp folder.

Any ideas?

BTW: I had problems with my onboard graphic card switch as well.

Hardware: Acer Aspire 5750 G
core i7
8GB RAM
Windows 7
GEFORCE GT 540M 2GB
