StarDrop's SeeSAR module requires up to date graphics hardware and drivers in order to function correctly.
When you visit StarDrop's SeeSAR tab, if you see a message which says "Unsupported graphics system", then you may need to update your graphics drivers. In 90% of cases, problems can be resolved by updating your graphics drivers and the following instructions give some details as to how you can do this.
First, find out the manufacturer of the display adapter you are using. If you already know this, then you can move on to Step 2 below.
