I recently purchased a Toshiba laptop that is geared for multimedia. The specifics are: Windows 8, Intel Core i7 dual processors, 2.9GHz 8GB RAM and Intel HD 4000 graphics. I use Viewer 2. First the first, I have not been able to get the graphics working properly. the text on the floating windows flashes and at time disappears completely. Occasionally the tools bars flash different colors and the scroll bars, check boxes and buttons have a "halo' of color going from green to red. No adjustments I have made have had any effect. any suggestions or information is greatly appreciated.

this is a known issue with Intel HD 4000 Graphics.
- Roll back graphics driver to a previous version (may not be possible on Windows 8)
- Disable basic shaders [Menu Me-> Preferences -> graphics]
- Set RenderGLCoreProfile to TRUE in debug settings and relog (see https://wiki.secondlife.com/wiki/Debug_Settings ).
Note that enabling this setting will also drop FPS by about a third.
