Thanks! Jason.
Using 331.20 indeed solved the problem.
A bit supprise though..  ( both 331.20 and 304.1160 are the latest version released on Nov6, 2013, while the recommanded one did not work for some reason)
Best regards,

No, you should use a later driver.  There were issues with drivers before 325.15 for certain hardware, so there was a check put in to make sure that was the version driver being used.

I believe the C2075 is fine with the 304.1160 drivers (maybe).  If you can't upgrade the driver for whatever reason, then you can always comment out the driver version check in gpu.cpp and recompile (but I would suggest trying to get the updated driver, first).

Good luck,
