That's usually related to not having installed the correct graphics drivers for your graphics card.

The Dell Inspiron R15 HD 4000 video driver works on general video playback. I have attempted to install the latest, however the joy of losing the touch pad didn't help much.

I may consider installing OpenFOAM on Linux Mint 17 and see how that works.

Thanks for the assistance.

@Charles: Did you manage to solve this issue by installing Linux Mint?
