Hi, I've just returned to SETI and installed on my new(ish) laptop.

I followed instructions to get the seti screensaver looking more like how old seti use to.

However I am suffering the same issue as 2 other threads from recent years where the bottom graph stays blank while all else is fine.

Any suggestions other than checking drivers?

many thanks
Tiffany

Other than using another videocard than the inbuilt Intel GPU, there is no solution. It is a problem with the OpenGL part of the Intel drivers. Nothing that BOINC or Seti can do to fix that, especially not when it works without problems on Nvidia and AMD hardware.
