Mobile Intel® GM965 Express Chipset and Open GL

I’m a simple user. My Archicad 11 software uses Open GL. I just bought my first laptop Sony VAIO VGN-NR11Z/S
it has Intel® Core™ 2 Duo Processor T7250, Mobile Intel® GM965 Express Chipset whit onboard graphic card Intel Graphics Media Accelerator X3100 . 2MB DDRAM, Windows VISTA home edition 32

everytime I try to open 3d view with Open GL in archicad it gives me an erorr message about OPEN GL and it stops running!
Should I cry! for my bad choice or is it something I can do about?
Please help!

hint: providing the error message might be a good idea.

“an error ocurred:add-on OPEN GL”
that’s the message!

Looks like ArchiCAD doesn’t provide much support for Intel graphics (look here)
On the other hand, it could be a Vista related problem as mentioned here


Thanks! First of all I’ve looked for ArchiCad support, and then sony vaio support, and couldn’t get anyother answer but : I have made a terrible mistake buying that Vaio! :)) Open GL forum was my last hope!
Thanks anyway for your troubble!
