Starting issues

First, thank you for this great contribution to us fans universe and search engines every time more information. My problem with Espace Engine, is that when run, loads fine, but when clicking on planetary start shit, and when I initial imaging a planet (I assume it's the red Mars), tells me that the program stopped working, and simply close the window. Thought it would be a problem with my system <operating, but to try on other Laptop I've noticed that it is not. the characteristics of my pc are:

Laptop HP g4-1172la
Atlom II P360 Processor AMD Dual-Core 2.3 Ghz Processor
Video Card AMD M880G with ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4250

drivers of my pc is <n date and simply not what the problem is. I hope your help with this detail. Thank you again.

Hi sammyhnny and welcome to the forum smile
I don't think is an hardware problem, if you're saying that it crashes when you approach a planet, did you tryed to update drivers? Did you tried to look at this post?
If yes I don't really know what's the problem, how much do you have of dedicated memory on your video card?

The universe is not required to be in perfect harmony with human ambition.

CPU: Intel Core i7 4770 GPU: ASUS Radeon R9 270 RAM: 8 GBs

(still don't know why everyone is doing this...)

I'm pretty sure the ATi 4250 with your configuration has only 256 MBs of VRAM, and that's way too small for SE. Planets use up nearly a gig of VRAM, so crashing when near planets would be normal with low VRAM.

I am currently reinstalling the drivers for my video card, but ... Think you still have problems??? and if it were so, how could I solve it, if the problem were not the drivers???
