My laptop's graphics card suddenly stopped working, all patches doing anything fancy in opengl just give me blank screens, the textures don't draw to planes. Even things that normally work like the opengl feedback in jitter recipes book 2 and vade's jitter movie optimization patches just give black screens. I seem to remember this happened once before and reinstalling the graphics card drivers seemed to help. I've removed and reinstalled the drivers and at the same time uninstalled max, trashed the preferences and reinstalled it but it doesn't help. I've tried the omega and the regular drivers for my card but it's still blank. Please chime in if this rings a bell and you have an idea what to do.
