Hi Ben,
	One thing to do is to go to the Nvidia web site and make sure you  
have the latest set of drivers for your graphics card.  You were  
pretty close with enabling debug mode:  you right-click on the  
Chimera icon ==> properties ==> Shortcut and add --debug to the  
target.  The --debug should be after the ending double quote of the  
original target, separated by a space.  Then the next time you run  
Chimera, a text window will pop up with additional error  
information.  Copying text from the debug window is a little tricky.   
You can copy the text from the debug window by right mouse clicking  
on the console window's title bar and first doing a "select all"  
followed by a "copy" and then you can paste the text.
