Compiling adaptive lights

Hi all,
I am trying to render a scene but whenever it gets to the ‘compiling adaptive lights’ portion then the screen transforms from the render into this weird image:


this also appears in the logs when this happens:

what would be the issue in this case? i am new to vray so apologies and thank you

It appears that your graphics card or the driver is too old. Check the recommendations for GPU architecture and Driver version here: https://support.chaos.com/hc/en-us/articles/19958460610577-V-Ray-GPU-Minimal-and-Recommended-system-requirements

Also mind that those system requirements are for the latest version of V-Ray.
