update your video card drivers should work unless you have an old system or using an Intel built in video card.

To expand on what Perry said; make your system specs part of your signature so folks trying to assist you can know what they're working with, post screen shots of you ray trace settings, and post your plan.

Ray tracing isn't done on the video card so generally, if you are seeing a problem in a ray trace, then it's an issue with the plan.

 

Use backup entire plan to backup the plan and all related textures and upload it here so we can take a look.

Thanks Kirk, you are correct about cpu vs gpu and raytracing.

Still can't upload. I sent the file to support. Thanks

Add to your signature with a bit more information, as Jon mentioned. What version of Chief, for example? You can get a pretty good Ray Trace after about 10 passes that usually won't take more than a few minutes, to perhaps 10-15 depending on complexity.

 

Lots of great help here, so I'd also try to figure out how to post a plan.

How many lights are turned on? Since we are just guessing, I am guessing a lot of lights.
