Stellarium (a free application for astronomie) works w/o any problem on many computers of my astronomie club but impossible to use it on my Toshiba Satellite C660-226. No problem during installation but nothing appends when I launch the program.
I run it in compatibility mode (windows XP Sp2) and Intel HD graphics driver is at level 126.96.36.1999 as recommended on Toshiba support center.
If I install a lower level of this driver( VGA std graphic carte at level 6.1.7600.16385) ,Stellarium works but very slowly and some functions (like zoom) are bugging.
Stellarium support center recommands to install a more recent level of intel HD graphics driver but I don't find a more recent level working with P6100 processor on Intel download site.
Can you help me?
Hi some news about Intel driver install on my Toshiba Satellite C660-226
I've succeded to install Intel HD graphics driver level 188.8.131.529 and now Stellarium works fine.
Hereunder the method I've applied :
First I've installed an old driver level found on my labtop ( VGA graphics card std level 6.1.7600.16385)
then Uninstalled Stellarium if already installed.
I've download Win7Vista_64_152250.exe from the Intel download center (Pentium P6100 for my computer)
On exec line : I typed the following command : bcedeit /set nointegritychecks ON
After these steps, I executed the downloaded file "Win7Vista_64_152250.exe" from my download directory.
When installation is finished , I reboot my labtop and checked Intel HD graphics driver.
Driver level now : 184.108.40.2069 (not 2189 as last Toshiba recommanded level).
On exec line : I typed the following command : bcedeit /set nointegritychecks OFF
Stellarium 0.10.6 is reinstalled and works w/o error now. Up to now I don't more recent level.......
Try this if you're still on this problem ...........good luck :o)
