Thanks for answer. I managed to open Chimera in debug mode, however,
nothing exceptional appears when I open Chimera after it crashes. When
Chimera crashes (in debug mode) when the screen saver goes one, I
received a message in the window. Unfortunately, I could not copy and
paste the text, so I am attaching an image of the window.
I updated the drivers but the problem persists.
Any information you can get from the error message? Any other suggestions?
Thanks a lot for your time,
