Hi Ben,

  This is definitely a graphics driver problem.  These are unfortunately 
very common on laptops.  Updating your graphics driver is the best hope, 
but since that did not work you might investigate changing graphics 
driver settings to reduce the level of hardware acceleration.  Some 
suggestions are on our graphics driver bug web page:


Chimera uses many 3d capabilities of your graphics card and if the 
driver provided by the laptop vendor or graphics card vendor has bugs it 
sometimes means Chimera cannot be used reliably on that machine.
