Unfortunately, this error message usually means your graphics card isn't compatible with Second Life. If you've checked your graphics card and it is compatible, try updating its drivers.
+
 
+
If your graphics card is listed as compatible, and you have the latest drivers, try these steps:
+
 
+
==Check Display settings==
+
 
+
# Right-click any empty space on your desktop and choose '''Properties'''.'''OR''', open the Control Panel, then open Display.
+
# Click on the '''Settings''' tab.
+
# The '''Color Quality''' box should read '''Highest (32-bit)'''. If it does not, change it to '''Highest (32-bit)''' and click '''OK'''.
+
# The '''Resolution''' should be at least the resolution Second Life is trying to run at. (In most cases, you probably want it higher, like 1024x768 or 1280x1024.)
+
 
+
==Check Windows Program Compatibility settings==
+
 
+
# Right-click the Second Life Icon and choose '''Properties'''.
+
# Go to the '''Compatibility''' tab.
+
# Make sure everything is unchecked.
