    Using Earth in AMD 800MgHz Athlon 128MB RAM XP with SP2 Pack and Trident 96XX/938X Video Accelerator.

    Atempting to print image under File>Print but "Print" is not highlighted.
    Earth toolbar shows "print" but is inactive, appears dead.
    Google has recommended I upgrade Video Card.
    Is printing problem a part of the Card?
    RAM too low?
    Thanks,
    D.

    Increasing the RAM from 128 MB to 384 MB was a very good move because it'll noticably increase the overall performance and speed of that computer.

    Make sure that you also have Microsoft DirectX 9.0c installed.

    To save and print an image in Google Earth, do the following:

    Click File - Save - Save Image

    Give it a name, save it in .jpg format, select a location to save it, then click Save.

    Open the saved image with whatever program you use to open still images.

    Click File - Print.
