Default A lot of "Fatal Error" messages

Hi,

been getting this a lot recently: "Fatal Error. Attempting to save in Cocum~1/(user name)~/locals@1/temp/(user name).(date).(time).ma.

Happens with different scenes, sometimes when using IPR, sometimes when I try high quality rendering, and some other occasions. I've googled it and it seems to be common to some ati cards, but I've got a nvidia 6800 128mb, with fairly recent drivers. Been using maya for about 6 months and it's just started.

As soon as I click "ok" on the message, maya closes.

Anyone know what this is and how to fix?

thanks,

gubar

should have added: I've tried the disable triple buffering option as suggested elsewhere but it makes no difference.

I'm not sure wot the specific problem is, does it happen with a particular file or multiple files?

I had this problem once, I just reinstalled Maya and didn't have anymore problems, maybe you could try this.

Hope it helps

Chris

Hi,

it happens on multiple files. I guess I could re-install but really only as a last resort, due to preferences/plug-ins etc. I've wait a while and see if it gets figured out, then re-install if not.

thanks,

gubar
