Solution: Google Earth: ‘DirectX’ mode not supported

I’ve been using Google Earth on various computers and laptops until i installed Google Earth on Fujitsu Lifebook S6421. The problem doesn’t lie in the proper drivers that are not installed or directx 9.0c. It should also affect: Fujitsu Lifebook S6421BW, S6420WS.

I even went to install DirectX 10 on my Windows XP. But it still fails.

Solution:
– Start -> Settings -> Control Panel -> Display -> Settings tab
– Click ‘Advanced’ button, ‘Troubleshoot’ tab
– Under ‘Hardware acceleration’
– Move the lever to Full
– Check ‘Enable write combining’
– Press ‘Ok’

Now try Google Earth again!
