    That's with the latest nVidia drivers.

    And Crysis 1 no longer launches.
    I feel your pain...

    I don't know about those of you who tried the above solution but unfortunately I'm back to square one :/

    After a full evening of ED at 45-60FPS, I turned off the PC for the night. Upon switching the PC on, Windows prompted me that the system is SLI capable. SLI was working the night before, however after restarting the next morning, Windows somehow turned it off. I re-enabled SLI hoping that's the only issue. When I started ED in the evening I came across the exact same issues, only this time I decided not to let the low FPS keep me from my fun and it just kept getting worse and worse (12 fps) until I got the following System Error message:

    "The file has failed to load after multiple attempts as Direct3D cannot lock a buffer.

    Please check your machine meets the minimum specs for Elite: Dangerous. If the minimum specs are met then upgrading graphics drivers may rectify the problem."

    At present the only solution is uninstall drivers, run DDU in safe mode, reinstall drivers and NEVER EVER reboot/shutdown the PC
