Question

You need to update your graphics card driver. Various pink bugs affected both ATI/AMD and Nvidia cards.

Graphics Cards

To find out what graphics card you have:

Open Second Life to login screen and select Help > About Second Life. The window that opens will show your graphics card in the computer details.

Alternatively, select Start Menu > Run

In the command box type dxdiag and press ok

Click the Display tab in the window that opens

The top line under the section Device should give you the graphics card manufacturer and card series

 If you have a desktop with AMD (ATI) or Nvidia graphics card, use these links:

NVidia: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?

AMD/ATI: http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/Pages/index.aspx

 Input the details of your card or use Nvidia's auto detect utility if a Nvidia card.

AMD/ATI's auto detect utility is available here http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/auto_detect.aspx

In its Help page http://www.nvidia.com/object/drivers_faq.html Nvidia recommends installing the new driver over the old one but to avoid issues, most people recommend you do uninstall first. You do have to uninstall AMD drivers before installing the new one. However, it's very simple and AMD provide helpful videos on that link.

If you have an Intel integrated chipset, use Intel's driver detect utility at http://www.intel.com/p/en_US/support/detect?redirector_count=1&

If you have a notebook, you may need to download an updated driver from the notebook manufacturer's website, depending on the card. For AMD Mobility cards in laptops, refer to the links on this page http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/737-28041SupportforATIMobility.aspx

AMD does supply generic Mobility drivers for laptops with some restrictions and warnings. Refer http://support.amd.com/us/gpudownload/windows/Pages/radeonmob_win7-64.aspx

For Nvidia cards in notebooks, Nvidia provide drivers from this link http://www.nvidia.com/object/notebook_drivers.html

As you have a Mobility card, you're obviously using a laptop so did you go to this page, click the link for your notebook manufacturer then install the latest available graphics driver? http://support.amd.com/us/kbarticles/Pages/737-28041SupportforATIMobility.aspx

 

The 4000 series is now on legacy drivers with Catalyst 12.6 the latest available while newer cards are up to 12.11. May explain why the details you quoted show a much older Windows and Open GL driver versions but I wouldn't have thought that old. What laptop have do you own and what is the link to the updated driver you installed?
