Google Earth... Graphics problem..

  funbubble 17:44 08 Jan 2008

cant seem to get the picture on this!

I have a Pentium4 2.4Ghz 248Ram

Graphics = 8284SG/GL/GE/PE/GV

Is it simply a case of getting a new graphics card?

I would just guess that it is the memory that needs increasing. I can access Google Earth quite OK with my laptop, whose graphics are very poor indeed.

It might be that you do not have enough RAM for things to run properly - you only appear to have 256Mb which is very little by today's standards.
Minimum now-a-days is usually 1Gb RAM.

And I am afraid I do not understand your 'Graphics' details?

I had assumed that because 'Google Earth' suggest you need 16mb video ram - the prob lay in that direction..

Thanks for that!

My son has put his tuppenceworth in!

"...- is this really a RAM deficiency? (Icons in MS word appear pixelated and thoroughly obscur) No, there's an incompatability with DirectX/OpenGL and that video card."

More help needed!!

I did click on the display adapter..


..also no conflicts are flagged up.

I'm surprized that no one on this forum has had a similar problem....Images on google earth appear latticed and completely unreadable..

Does this problem affect only Google Earth? what are the graphics like on other programs?

Also have you tried altering Display Settings/Resolution in Desktop>Properties?

Some probs with MS word only as mentioned above.....(I think we have cured it by dropping the 'accelerating' setting, down a bit.)

Downloaded the above but dont know where to extract it to!
