When I try to start nTop the error "OpenGL Context Creation Failed" occurs.


The following error message is displayed if nTop cannot recognize a valid graphics card.



Applies to:

  • nTop 2.22
  • NVIDIA Graphics Cards


Possible causes of this issue are:

  • An unsupported Graphics Card
  • Outdated Graphics Card drivers
  • A mistake with NVIDIA Control Panel settings


  1. Verify your Graphics card meets the minimum system requirements.
  2. Install a new copy of your graphics card driver or update your driver with the manufacturer's latest version.
  3. For NVIDIA Graphics Cards be sure to enable high-performance graphics card settings.
