    Google Earth flickers when run on Q45/Q43 chipset graphics based PC

    Huddersfield

      We have several users reporting an issue with Google Earth when running the application on our Acer Veriton L670 PC's.  These PC's all have Q45/Q43 chipset display adaptors.

       

      The issue is that the view pane of the Google Earth application flickers (or blinks)  at irregular intervals, but especially when first opening the application.

       

      I have tested the application on other models running other chipsets and the issue does not occur, it seems to be limited to this particular model / chipset and occurs in both OpenGL and DivX mode

       

      The PC's are running Windows XP.  The graphics driver versions are 6.14.10.4980 (however I have upgraded one PC to 6.14.10.5237 with no effect).  Google Earth versions affected are 5.0.11337.1968 (beta) and 5.1.3534.0411.

       

      Any assistance appreciated.

      Thanks,

      H.
