Problem with installing Creo on Student's laptop

Hello,

I have one of my students who installed Creo onto his laptop, a HP Pavillion dv6 running windows 7 home premium 64 bit. Program apparently installed without any issue, though now every time he boots Creo the web page that opens when the program runs cannot be closed. See screen shot below.

Can select new and create a new part, the model tool bar opens and you can select extrude or what ever. Apparently the program is operating with the exception that the web page cannot be closed and is as a consequent hiding everything behind it.

Is there a setting we've missed? Any suggestions please?

regards

Ian

Hi Ian,

This is a fairly common graphics problem. I would recommend updating your graphics card from the manufacturer's website. If that doesn't solve the issue, you can follow the steps in the guide below to change your graphics settings:
