Video Drivers, Hardware Acceleration:


The video driver may be interfering with Laplink as it loads. If you suspect this, reduce the number of colors displayed. 

  1. From the Windows Start menu, point to Settings, click on Control Panel.

  2. Double-click on Display.

  3. Click on the Settings tab.

  4. Determine the number of colors being displayed. If it is greater than 16-bit (Hi-Color), reduce the color settings and apply. Reboot and try to launch Laplink again.

  5. If the same error occurs, repeat the above and reduce the colors to 256 colors.

  6. Reboot and launch Laplink again.


Reduce the amount of hardware acceleration:

  1. From the Windows Start menu, point to Settings and click on Control Panel.

  2. Double-click on System.

  3. Click on the Performance tab.

  4. In the Advanced Settings section, click on Graphics.

  5. You are presented with a slider representing the amount of hardware acceleration. It is normally set to Full. Reduce the amount of acceleration one setting at a time. After each change, reboot the computer and attempt to launch Laplink.

Uninstall and reinstall Laplink, ensuring that no other software is running during the installation. If possible, suspend or close your virus scan software during the installation.
