Windows 7: 5970 with SketchUP problems

5970 with SketchUP problems


I am having issues with the program Google SketchUP. The 3D space interface is totally unresponsive unless I de-activate the 'use hardware acceleration' option. This is supposedly caused by poor OpenGL features.

I have a Sapphire HD5970 with the latest 10.7 Catalyst and drivers, so this really shouldn't be an issue, however it is a real problem for me as I need extensive use of SketchUP.

Anyone got any ideas on how to solve this? Or heard of any issues like this with my particular card?

All help appreciated.
