We just bought some powerful gaming laptops to run experiments. The laptops have a Nvidia GeForce GTX 960M card. They can handle most of 3D games without a problem. When we tried a script for Psychtoolbox, the script failed because of synchronization failure.
This is a very common problem and there is a document with detailed information. I followed some of the suggestions, but they did not solve the problem.
I tried to adjust some settings in the Nvidia control panel. Finally, I found the setting which solves this particular problem. Here are the steps:
- Open up Nvidia control panel.
- Navigate to 3D Settings -> Adjust Image Settings with Preview.
- Click on Use my preference emphasizing and move the slider to Performance.
- Click on Apply.
After we made the change, we ran the script again without any error.
