This is almost certainly a graphics driver problem. Since it happens
during selection it may be related to the green outline Chimera draws
around selected objects. You can try changing the selection
highlighting to see if that helps. Use Chimera menu Favorites /
Preferences, select category Background, and switch "Selection highlight
method" from outline to fill. Then try selecting something. If that
works you could make that the default by pressing the Save button on the
preferences pane where you made that change.
The real fix is to get a graphics driver that works. You should try
to update the driver. We have advice about this on our graphics driver
bugs web page.
