Google Earth Problem

  spuds 11:51 01 Feb 2006

I downloaded the free version of Google Earth a month ago, and it appeared to work okay. Yesterday, I made various attempts to use the programme, but kept getting error messages, including shut-downs. In the main, it seems to suggest (now) that the graphics card on my computer is not up to the job.

Anyone else having similar problems. What would you advice, bearing in mind that the graphics card as never been a problem previously and still seems to work for all other general programmes.

and it seems to work OK.

I have been unable to find any type of instructions on how to use

Uninstalled and reinstalled, and still no Google Earth.

Error messages, two of five: Google Earth has encounted a Begin Frame Rendering error:Upon investigation,we found that your particular graphics card does not support Google Earth in 'OPEN GL' mode. You are likely to encounter severe problems with Google Earth if you proceed. We apologize for the inconvenience but we would like to switch you to 'Direct X' mode.

Gone through various procedures,including reloading latest version of Direct X. Still cannot use Google Earth. As previously mentioned, I was able to use this programme a month ago, but the programme as now stated I cannot.

Thanks everyone for the replies so far, any other ideas!.

Thanks guys, tried the suggestions, but still getting the error messages and close-downs. Un-installed and re-installed the whole lot again, with no different results.

Doe's anyone know what is 'Begin Frame Rendering' which I keep getting as an error message.Also 'Open GL', which again, keeps coming up as an error message.There is a provision for using 'Open GL', but clocking on that, makes no difference.

Skyver--Thanks for the link. Tried the various testing procedures, and everything gave a good result, so seems no problems there, according to the computer.

I'll leave this posting open for the time being.
