Steam client "no hardware acceleration available"

  • Ever since the latest update my steam client would often go blank and just say "no hardware acceleration available" in the settings gear until I restart it, then everything is fine again (until next time it does that). If I exit to map and return to any room it'll be with the simple renderer.

    What's up with that?

    Something's wrong with your video system. Did you try updating video drivers?

  • Yes. Outside of the fact that it has nearly killed my windows installation (something went sideways, very badly), nothing has changed. Screeps still occasionally drops into non-accelerated mode upon loading a room, and settings say "no hardware acceleration available". Despite everything else on system running fine.

  • I've got the same problem with chrome just recently. But hardware acceleration does work with firefox.
