Apparently if I want to use the gpu to render in mandelbulber on my new computer, I need to do something called a "tdr registry edit," except. . . I'm coming from mac, and I have 0 skill doing anything on windows. . . Could someone explain the steps of how to do this?

The windows registry has always been editable as a large script file. There would be thousands of sites that mention it. Always back-up the registry first with another file name.

regedit is the name of the registry editor on windows, that's what I used on my win10 box

just google "windows 10 regedit" for info on how to find it and how to use it :)

@ R-TEAM
I have no idea why you do not have any timeout problems.  It is the most common GPU setup problem for Windows users, (linux does not need this)
The problem ususally occurs when using expensive  effects like volumetric light

Yeah, I got that a lot with Incendia for example.   It's annoying ;)

i rarely use volumetric lights - most time nebula effects/reflection/SSAO + MC rendering ...

@  R-TEAM
I  seldom use effects other than fog based on distance, and occasionally reflections set at 1 or 2. I never render anything that takes more than an hour so i guess that  kind of makes me safe from any long calculations. My GTX 960M laptop is too slow for any gpu intensive stuff.

what is the GPU you are using?
