Search online to find how to update your Windows graphics driver. Unfortunately for old laptops, there may not be any new graphics driver.

> Probably your graphics driver is not adequate. You can check what driver Chimera is using with Chimera menu Help / Report a Bug under “Gathered information” it will list OpenGL Renderer and Version. If it says Microsoft GDI 1.1 then you are using 1990s graphics and Chimera won’t do selection. You would need to update your driver.
