  2. It is not a general problem. In fact the current standard SL version (3.6.0) is running better that some recent ones. First, clear cache Preferences- Advanced tab. If that does not work, save you current avatar under a new name. Then remove all attachements and relog. TKR
  3. In the standard SL viewer, you can view previous conversations. See tnis: New Communications Features, Version 3.5.0You may be able to see this content by logging on with the standard SL viewer, even if you were not using that viewer at the time of the conversation. Note that the current viewer is 3.6 . or above, but the communication feature is standard now. TKR

  16. I have no info on that specific problem but a common remedy for such problems in new machines is to install a new graphics driver from the website of the manufacturer. DONT get it from Micorsoft. And DONT let microsoft update (screw up) your graphics card. TKR PS: I watch for this kind of issue in the forums and have not seen many, so I doubt that this is a general problem with Win 8. (I hate the tablet screen, and will avoid upgrading till I can boot to my desktop.)

  22. If you have no land and ar not a member of a group that charges expenses to you, you can leave your account alone indefinitely. To fix it so you can't login, just remove your current viewer. You will have to install a new one when you want to login. Be sure to keep a record of your password. TKR
  23. I have bought several PC's online--from HP and Dell (Alienware). HP used to offer more customization than it did the last time I checked. It also offers the Slimline version, which I want because it is small enough for me to carry. The extended service warranty from HP also proved to be worthwhile. TKR
  24. Orca just gave good advice about checking for a current driver at the Nvidea website. And I would add, never let Microsoft update your graphics driver. I doubt that a new driver will fix the problem, but a driver update is good anyway. My card is now on the recognized list, so I can't test, but it was not when I first got it. I did not have the problem you are seeing. This sounds like a bug. My suggestion for next step is: File a bug report here: http://jira.phoenixviewer.com/secure/Dashboard.jspa or join the Phoenix-Firestorm group inworld and ask for help. TKR
  25. If SL does not recognize your graphics card, it will set you graphics to low. But you should be able to set them to higher values in the prefrences - graphics window. (With Advanced turned on.) I am using the standard SL viewer and find that it lets me set the graphics up even to values higher than I can use. I think Firestorm is similar. TKR
