'Display Surface initialization failed' - Version 22.5 Windows 11

Hey,

 

for a few days, I have been getting this extremely annoying Error in Premiere Pro. When I try to start up Premiere the splash panel comes up, but nothing happens (it doesn't show that it is loading anything). After a short time the error message 'Display Surface initialization failed' shows up and when I click 'OK', it closes.

I believe this error started to come up after the most recent update. I nearly always work with After Effects files in my Premiere Composition (Dynamic Link).

 

During the last few days I have gotten Premiere to start up a handful of times, by repeatedly trying to start it over and over again. Once in a while it actually starts for no apparent reason.

 

I have tried everything!! 

  • Deleting and reinstalling Premiere Pro
  • Installing older versions
  • Unplugging all my external displays and devices
  • I even did a complete system reset of Windows with deleting every file on my computer

 

None of these things worked and Premiere still doesn't start up. I don't know what else to do and as I'm a freelancer this problem literally costs me money. Please, does anyone have an idea what I can do to fix this?

 

My specs:

Premiere Pro Version: 22.5 (also tried 22.4 & 22.3.1)

Operating System: Windows 11 64-bit (newest Version)

Laptop: Dell XPS 15 7590

Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-9750H CPU @ 2.60GHz 2.59 GHz
Installed RAM: 16,0 GB (15,7 GB usable)
System type: 64-bit operating system, x64-based processor
Pen and touch: Pen support

Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1650

 

Thanks

Alex
