Question

  • 0

If you have checked your graphics card drivers and are sure that they are up to date, then your card itself may be too old (outdated) to handle all of SL's graphics gracefully.  See if it helps to go to Preferences >>> Graphics >>> Hardware Options and disable OpenGL Vertex Buffer Objects (VBO).  If not, you may also need to disable Use HTTP Textures.  Depending on which viewer you are using, that may be on the same tab in Graphics, or could be in a tab labeled Rendering.

For completeness:

Video Drivers

Mac drivers are included with OS upgrades. However, to determine what card you have, select “About this Mac” from the Apple menu, then click “More Info”. Under Hardware select Graphics/Displays.

If you are not sure what type of video card you have, use GPU-Z found (win only) here. For linux, in a console use:
lspci | grep VGA
