Photoshop CC crashing on NVIDIA GT 540M (driver bug)

Hi,
If I run Photoshop CC on NVIDIA GeForce GT 540M, 2GB RAM (OpenGL 4.3, detected by DoctorGL) Photoshop will fall with error "Program has stopped working". I have latest drivers. My integrated graphic card is slow and I can't create 3D effects. Can someone help me please?

What does the crash report say is the faulting module?

When exactly does Photoshop crash?

Does Help -> System Info show anything about the crash?

Photoshop will crash immediately after launch, so I can't see System info. Crash report said only the program has stopped working. Here is screenshot of error:

Sorry, it's in Czech, but here is translate:
"Program Adobe Photoshop CC has stopped working
Problem caused that program has stopped working correctly
System Windows will close the program and notify you whether there are solutions"
But after I close this message, Windows show me nothing.

We need the details from the system logs, with the name of the faulting module. Quite likely the cause is the video driver, but it could also be a third party plugin, corrupt fonts, malware, etc.

Check Event Viewer > Windows Logs > Application
and find the crash event corresponding to the Photoshop crash, then we need to see the details.

If You need translate Czech words, please tell me, I can do that. I don't want to translate it bad, so I let the original text.

Yep, your video card driver (nvd3d9wrap.dll ) is crashing.

Contact NVidia. You might have bits of an older driver still on your system, or something else wrong with the driver that can be cleaned up easily. If not, and it really is a bug in the driver, then NVidia will need more information to isolate the bug for their engineers to fix.

Hello,
NVIDIA sent me here again. This problem is specific for Photoshop Creative Cloud. (Photoshop CS5, CS6 and others programs are working)
I look forward for Your help

The crash is inside the NVidia driver, only NVidia is going to be able to solve the crash inside NVidia code.
Adobe does not have NVidia's code, and cannot do anything about crashes occurring in NVidia code.

Also, other programs or older programs working doesn't mean anything, since the new program may be hitting a different part of the driver, and that part contains the bug in the driver.

No, that has nothing to do with it. You aren't using Premiere.

Programators from Nvidia don't know, where is the problem. In informations about Photoshop CC specs are not listed the graphic cards.

Yes, because Photoshop isn't limited to specific cards. Photoshop's GPU code works with any GPU and driver that work correctly. But you have a driver version that does not work correctly and is crashing. So you either need to update the driver, or contact NVidia and work with them to get the driver bug fixed.

I have latest drivers. (Certified WHQL drivers). Programators from Nvidia will wait for Your reply.

NVidia needs to hear FROM YOU -- it's your system that has a crashing bug in their code. I don't have a system that crashes in the NVidia driver, so I can't help them figure out why their driver code is crashing.

Your problem may not be related to Photoshop CC and the NVIDIA 540m graphics processor. Photoshop CC works perfectly with the the NVIDIA 540m graphics processor. The problem is with NVIDIA's Optimus (GPU switching). For some reason, NVIDIA's Optimus wants to push Photoshop CC off on to the integrated card - in my case it's the Intel 3000. This issue can be resolved by overriding the errant 540m's GPU switching behavior for the Photoshop CC program using the NVIDIA Control Panel.

NVIDIA Control Panel -> Manage 3D settings -> Program Settings (tab) -> 1. Select a program to customize: (drop down -> select "Adobe Photoshop") -> 2. Select the preferred processor for this program: (drop down -> select "High-performance NVIDIA processor") -> Click the "Apply" button in the lower right corner. -> Then create something cool!

I hope this post saves someone's time and sanity.

NVIDIA, if you're listening, how about a fix in the next driver update?

I had the same issue. The issue seems to be caused by NVIDIA Optimus (GPU switching). I resolved it by using the NVIDIA Control Panel and changing the graphics processor to the processor that wasn't selected (Do this via NVIDIA Control Panel -> Manage 3D settings, Program Settings tab). Currently, I have the "Integrated graphics" (Intel 3000) selected, but Adobe's GPU sniffer tells me the 540m is being used by Photoshop CC and Preferences -> Performance shows the same. I have full Adobe Photoshop CC functionality, no warning messages, and no crashes.

BTW... I'm using two external monitors (1 HDMI and 1 DVI (on the mini display port w\ converter) and not using the laptop screen.

NVIDIA - please fix this.
