Windows 7: OpenGL on eee Pc

OpenGL on eee Pc


I can't get Open GL applications run on my asus eee pc 1001p. It has an Intel graphics media accelerator 3150.

I tried
-all os compatibility modes
-running it as administrator
-disabling aero
-disabling desktop composition

I also downloaded the latest driver from Intel, installed it, rebooted. It shows OpenGL dialogs exactly like these Graphics — OpenGL* Settings Guide. But the OpenGL apps just won't run.

I tried an OpenGL benchmark, Blender, Anim8or and Silo. They don't show any 3d picture, just a black or transparent window.

DirectX applications run fine, e.g. Truespace.

What can I try?

Thanks a lot

The Intel graphics media accelerator 3150 in the ASUS Eee PC 1001P
only supports OpenGL upto and including version OpenGL 1.5. This is most likely the issue. Most software require at least OpenGL 2.

I believe Blender requires only OpenGL 1.1 and Anim8or uses an old version too. Sadly, I get no error message at all.
