    Google Earth Display Has Messed Up 3-D Effect

    Since upgrading to W8.1, GE now looks like 3-d without using glasses...a double image of red/blue. I don't have anything 3-d related on my PC. I searched Google Earth 3-d and nothing came up. Any ideas?

    If you have an nVidia Video Card, there are 3-D effects built in, there should be a 1/8th inch jack on the Video Card, this is for 3-D glasses. IN the nVidia Control Panel, you will see "Stereoscopic 3D" - Check to see if that is turned on, if it is, then shut it off. The 3-D glasses cost a minimum of 100 bucks.

    I don't see "stereoscopic 3D" in the Control Panel. I see 3D Settings/Manage Global Settings & Program Settings but nothing to turn it on or off. The only control is see is "Restore" which I clicked but no change.

I bought this PC recently and have been very pleased with it. Adapting to Windows 8 was quick and effortless for me, and I have very few qualms about it. However, I shut down last night and when I booted up this morning, my display is different than it was before. In fact, it's quite confusion....
