Try deleting the following file and restart max:
When max starts up for the first time after you delete this file, make sure that you select “Software” from the graphics driver setup popup box.
If you have continued problems, IM me over AIM and I will help you.
I used to get that error with 3dsm3, when I didn’t have my graphics drivers installed properly, or they were being dedicated to another process, or I was trying to use Glide for the fun of it. Make sure your drivers are up to date, and that you’ve selected the correct renderer, OpenGL, DirectX, or Software.
