if i turn on "use hardware acceleration" it usually at some random point first freezes the software and then the whole desktop, then display goes black. when image returns i finally able to see any error messages is see this message:
"display adapter driver has recovered from serious error and has been reseted/restarted."
here is my pc specs:
Windows 8.1 x64 / 8gb ddr3 1600mhz ram / amd fx 8-core cpu / nvidia gtx 690 with latest WHQL drivers / latest spotify version (stable).
i just have to disable "hardware acceleration" in spotify settings menu. then the problem is gone.
is this nvidia drivers related issue or maybe spotify bug??
