Default Open GL Error

Hey Everyone,

In trying to get Fluent to work on my laptop, this is what happens. I go to open up a case file, and the first thing I do is try to display the grid with my Airfoil in it and this is what fluent tells me

Error message from graphics function Update_Display: Unable to Set OpenGL Rendering Context

Error: FLUENT received a fatal signal (SEGMENTATION VIOLATION). Error Object: ()

Anyone ever experience this trouble? or can give me any insight in how to fix it? My laptop is not even 3 months old.. a Dell Inpsiron 5150.. I know Open GL is related to my video card, but I have no idea how to solve it.. I have a nVidia GeForce FX GO5200 is that helps. If someone could get back to me please it would be greatly appreciated! Thanks

Try to download the latest driver for the video card - it worked to me.
