I was installing blender on my new but cheap bottom end laptop but unfortunately it doesn’t start.
I wouldn#t use blender on this laptop much anyway because I use it on my main desktop, however it would still be nice to have it on the move.
The laptop is a bottom end toshiba satellite pro c660 with intel i3 m380 proc, 4gb ram, no dedicated gpu. I am running windows 7 64bit. Will install ubuntu just now and try on that too.
Anyway, I downloaded both 64 and 32 bit blenders, python and all that stuff… but still nothing. When I open blender up, I just see a command prompt window for a few secs, with no text and then a windows error pops up saying “Blender has stopped working” the other error info is

Can’t figure what the error could be exactly but have a feeling that its because of lack of a proper gpu. I just dont know why it would give an error related to ati gpu even though i only have the intel inbuilt i3 graphics.
Anyway, if any of you have any info or suggestions, I would love to hear them.
In the mean while, I will instal ubuntu and see how it goes on that.
