Desktop is using the slower, less reliable integrated graphics device and probably needs a configuration change.

An accelerated graphics device exists and is attached to a monitor, but it’s not being used by Rhino.

  • Recommended: Use Windows’ Display Settings to configure the monitor attached to the NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4090, to be the “Main Display”.
  • Any hardware configuration or cabling changes you make will require that you restart Rhino.

just got a new computer, had AMD – had a bunch of crashes and then just like 4 days ago switched to INTEL

It looks like you are plugged into the Intel

how do I switch this?

Generally you can follow these directions, but if you are having issues you may want to look at Device Manager and see if your Video Cards are working correctly.


can both monitors be plugged into the nvidia?

looks like it depends on the hz


perfect, I love it

I just uploaded the file to you guys, can you please help me get my work back. it’s all missing

just found some bad objects in the file - hoping this was it

thank you for your help, no longer crashing on layout

Hi @Japhy I have been working with microcenter to understand what is going on. brand new custom build - this shouldn’t be happening. I AM able to plug both monitors into my graphics card — and it’s been working great… however, when working in rhino - the system seizes on me and I can’t do anything no ctrl+alt+delete. and happens completely random!!!

You can’t control+alt+delete? That sounds like a hardware issue.

If Rhino freezes and you can access the task manager please create a crash dump and send it to us.
