Hi Guys.

I'm not sure this is the right section to post this message. Sorry.

Does anybody know how to solve this problem with Windows Vista Business Service Pack 2, 32 bit, on a laptop computer? (PC Configuration: pentium dualcore 2Ghz, integrated graphic card).

I've tried different screen resolution in windows vista but nothing changed.

Blender version: 2.54 beta (but i had similar problem with blender version 2.49, I had visual problems trying to split the screen).

Thank you.

Bye,

Luca

integrated graphic card
The root of most Blender video problems is poor OpenGL support - something integrated graphics adapters are famous for. The usual hints apply:

Turn of Aero or other compositing window managers and effects

Update your video driver from the manufacturer's site

Turn down hardware acceleration.

Reduce display depth

Thank you Stiv.

It seems it was a problem related to the accounts of Windows Vista.
I had to run blender as administrator account to make it work.
