How do I fix an open gl error?
« on: February 07, 2012, 06:08:10 PM »
here is the lazy cam command history line for line

load project
post file
attaching to mach 3
no mach 3 found running
load complete

after that,  I get the box saying, "an open Gl error occurred: invalid value"

This new b appreciates your help.

The error box pops up as a lazy cam error, I can get the box to go away if I hold down the escape key. no other way kinda frustrating. never loads the g-code to mach 3. I read about the gl error and the screen going black, this is not the a problem of resolution settings,

OpenGL errors are usually caused by your video card. Either you need a better video card, or possibly updated drivers for your current card.

new pc to me xp os, no internet in its existence, I will try hooking it up to internet again, then it is off to the bone yard to find a video card worthy of mach 3 and lazy cam.
