It means that there is a nasty bug in your video card driver that caused Photoshop to crash. When you relaunch Photoshop, it knows that it crashed while calling the video card driver, and disables OpenGL drawing to avoid calling the buggy video card driver routines that it knows will crash.

You can try updating the video card driver from the GPU makers web site (not Microsoft or the system integrator), or you can turn off OpenGL drawing and live with it off.
