Thanks! Our Technical Support department has received reports from various late model laptop users regarding crashes that occur when the Mathematica kernel is launching from the front end. The symptom is that the details of the crash involves the NeoMagic display driver NMX.DRV. We don't know the full details of whether the problem is on our side or theirs, but we _do_ know of a workaround that helps you to avoid sacraficing your laptop altogether. WORKAROUND: Right click the "My Computer" icon on your desktop. And select "Properties". Choose the tab that is titled "Performance". Press the button called "graphics" that appears at the bottom of this dialog box. Move the accelerator slider from "Full" to "None". Click "OK" buttons to make the dialog boxes go away. Our development group is looking into the problem. -- P.J. Hinton Technical Support Engineer -- Wolfram Research, Inc.
