// Error: *Fatal* (mental ray) : mental ray encountered a fatal error. The system may have become unstable. Please save the scene and exit Maya.

Anyone know how to fix this? Been trying different light setups and this has began to occur. Renders fine when I have lights in the scene, but when I try and render with just final gather I get this. Also tested rendering with no lights/no FG to see what happened and I got the same message. Doesn't seem to like rendering without lights in the scene,

cheers

Hi Aikoworld,

spoke to my brother and he got it sorted for me. Just had to unload, and re-load the mental ray plugin.

cheers
