Blender error, please help its urgent

Post by nunoh123 » Sun Nov 07, 2010 1:23 am

Hi, recently my computer broke down and i now i have to use an old computer i had around the house. This computer runs on windows xp sp3 and i have an ati radeon hd 3850 agp. When i had the other computer blender (either version of it) worked fine but now, in the other computer, i installed blender and python and when i start blender the com windows opens, tells me that it found python and blender window opens with a grey screen.. at first i thought it was just gonna take some time for it to load but some seconds after a windows error message appears and i had to shut down blender.. Everytime i try to run blender the same problem appens..
Please help..

Sounds like the usual poor OpenGL support issue. Some usual fixes:

update driver from card manufacturer's site.

turn off compositing window managers

turn down hardware acceleration

A little googling suggests you video card/driver has problems with OpenGL. Try using a different driver - maybe whatever Windows provides or an older Catalyst driver.
