Hey all.
Having bad luck trying to get XTR 5.0.1 running properly on a new Lenovo/IBM Thinkpad. Running XP Pro, and latest patch set. XTR loads, but will not actually show video when it starts, and pretty much wipes out my desktop till reboot.

Anyone had this working on a laptop?

If is not an old laptop, it should work, unless it has a very poor video card. It works in my work laptop (hp compaq nx6110).

Make sure you have directx 9 and video card drivers updated.

Is there a life outside the sim?

This is a dual core Opteron T60P IBM with 3g memory. I updated the Radion and Direct X drivers and still no luck..
Oh well, time to fight tech support

I would guess it has to be the radion drivers you are using try downloading older drivers. It runs fine on my xp laptop with a radion in, which model of card is it you have? Try using a low screen resolution before running reflex.
