View Full Version : Laptop freezing in GE full screen view

09-29-2005, 06:52 AM
I currently use the latest ver. , but was having the same problem with ver. 6.8

In Google Earth, if I press F11, or go to View => Full Screen, after the full screen shows my laptop completely freezes. I cannot even do a "Ctrl-Alt-Del" to shut down. The only way I can exit the program is to push the shut-down emergency button with a paper-clip!

I use a HP OmniBook XE3, running Windows XP Pro, SP2

This is the only hassle I have with the GE software.

Anyone else experienced this, or does anyone have a solution?

Please ignore the first line of my post above - I'm confusing my Garmin Mapsource versions with GE versions :spin:

The version GE I am using where I have the freeze-up is: GE ver. 3.0.0616 beta, but the problem existed in the previous version as well
