    Does checking Use Safe Mode in the Graphic Mode section do anything?

    I'll try that. "EDIT" I just tried that, restarted GE but it repeated it but I was able to click the pop up this time to report it but I neglected to see if it was included.

    Minimum CPU requirement is a P3, which is from 10+ years ago, I think. You have a Phenom II X4 and Radeon HD 5000 series GPU, which are more than enough to handle GE.

    I'm not going to hold my breathe, but I think I've fixed it. The following shows the "new" settings.
