Please if anyone can help me!!

Hi Eugenia -

Does that mean that Grasshopper starts fine but adding a single Panel component crashes Rhino?

Your hardware is not really up to running Rhino 7. I wouldn’t expect much from it…

Thanks for the answer! I have been using rhino 7 for a long time, and rendering, computing large definitions and never had a problem. It seems like rhino does not recognize the capacity of the hardware any more (? I honestly can’t figure it out
Thank you again for the answer!

Hi Eugenia -

That’s always a possibility.
Could you please run the DeviceID application from the following post and post the result here?


Hi Win,
This is the result:


You have a 3070 in your laptop? Rhino isn’t seeing it AT. ALL. Something’s up. Check that Windows and all drivers are all up to date.

Thanks, Eugenia -
As Jim says, something as messed up your GPU configuration in Windows. A likely cause is a Windows update. At any rate, please see the following post for a clean installation of the drivers:

Make sure to include step 4 of the uninstalling process!
