I have recently purchaesed a Packard-Bell netbook. I have installed
Stellarium, but the image if flickering badly (see attached scrrenshot). I've
tried to launch the program in no open GL2 mode. The picture flickering is
gone, but now each time I press one of the menu buttons, I get the menu window
minimized (see screenshot), and when I move the mouse the window maxumizes but
I guess this has all to do with the graphics card.
PC specifications: Win 7 starter SP1, 32 bit. 2gb ram, Intel Atom dual core
1.6ghz, Intel graphics media accelerator 3600 series.
I had no display problems in both my preivous netbooks. This is the 1st time I
have such problems.
Hopefully I can get help here...
Thanks in advance.

I have similar experience. On a mini-ITX pc used in our observatory (details
see below), Stellarium (safe mode, without OpenGL) opens nicely and shows a
frame rate in the range of 30-40 fps. As soon as one of the dialog/preferences
boxes in the left menu is opened, it shrinks to about thumbnail size. It
flickers in normal size when you try to move around that thumbnail; sometimes
it gets a bit larger, but still unusable.
The problem goes away when uninstalling the graphics driver, although at the
cost of a frame rate below 0.2 fps, rendering Stellarium unusable (but the
preference boxes show nicely if you wait long enough). So this is not an
Any kind of solution or workaround to this problem would be much appreciated,
since many of our club members know Stellarium best of the available programs.

I have often had trouble with drivers for intel graphic as included on many
main boards. Usually the install disk has a specific special driver that seems
to clash with OpenGL . Attempting to upgrade the driver via device manager
usually says that the best driver is already loaded.
It takes a bit of searching through the intel driver support but I have always
found another driver that has worked although it may not be the driver
specific to the chip set.
I have a Toshiba satellite laptop which has windows Vista on it. I upgraded to
windows 7. I could not open the Stellarium app on windows 7. I downloaded
Graphics software from Toshiba website and was able to open the app after
that. But now the star, nebula,.... labels are not readable. But when I click
on a point the discription on top left side of screen is readable,
Can someone please explain how can I fix this.
