[Chimera-users] Problem with Chimera under Windows XP

I am running release 2304 of Chimera under Windows XP with service pack 2 on a Dell Inspiron 9300 laptop.  The image disappears from the screen for no apparent reason.  With the structures I am currently working on, this has become frequent and often occurs after just a few seconds when I click anywhere in the Chimera window.
I have found that if I use Model Panel, I can get the picture back by clicking the 'Shown' box to remove the tick mark, then clicking it again to re-insert the tick.  But the picture soon disappears again.  
Occasionally, it doesn't disappear completely, but part of it collapses, or spurious long lines appear.

I had the same problem with a previous release, 2184, and was disappointed that upgrading didn't fix it.  I can find no mention of anything similar in the documentation or email archive.  Can anyone suggest a possible cause?
