Error : EXT_frame buffer_object extension not found

This has been popping up now for about 10 days.

Now today it happened when I took the laptop off the electrics.

Did only find 2 old threads about this with no end solution, so therefore I ask help here.

Thanks already for any help on this error message,

Error : EXT_framebuffer_object extension not found

OK, so I went on the World Wide Web and found several very complicated ways of dealing with this error.

Kept looking round and decided to try a very simple solution given on : Dell.forums and it worked .

So if anyone is confronted with this error message, go to Services and disable AMD External Events Utility.

It worked for me !

So this thread is solved.
