When I try to run an OPENGL program on W7 it crashes - goes to a black screen.
I have the latest driver I can find.
OpenGL view program says system is up to about 1.5
But when I try to run the rendering part of the view program it goes to a black screen also.
There is one or two scan lines on the bottom of the screen with something in it.
Must cold boot to recover.

Memory is shared and set to 128MB in BIOS.
Total memory is 2GB.

OpenGL ran fine when computer was running XP.

any ideas where to look????
Anybody have OPENGL running on W7???

The latest version of OpenGL is v3.0 ( http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OpenGL#OpenGL_3.0 )

What program is it that you're trying to run?
