I am attempting to play this "fold it" game on my netbook along with my wife (who also has the same model netbook) and it does not seem to work.

System specs:

Asus EeePC1005HA-P
N280 @ 166Mhz processor speed
2gigs ram
Running Windows XP Home SP3
LCD 1024x768

The problems are twofold that I have found so far:

I am not a computer programmer, so I am at a lack for the's my best brief description:

1. The cursor is off a little, so that if you were to attempt to click on a box on the game, the cursor (arrow) is about 1" higher than it should be (based on what appears to be "rolled over") when I am scrolling the cursor.

2. When you start the game up, the entire window is not visible. There is a frame of sorts, but you cannot view what I would suspect there is to view if the game would work on this computer.

The concept of this game is brilliant. I have reason to believe the idea will be highly mimicked by other entities (e.g. volunteer labor via gamers). I would very much like to participate, but so far cannot.

If you have a fix for this, please contact me.

Thank you,

Try to run the netbook with it's native resolution (1024x600) when running Foldit. Setting the display resolution to 1024x768 compressed mode AND running Foldit seems to overstrain the graphics chip.
