I tried opening it in OpenGL Mode but it refuses to open with that option as well.
I would try to update to the latest drivers that you can find for your video card.  It could be that your video card is a piece of junk and just does not support the technologies that Google Earth requires.  Chances are pretty good that it does though.  

Check device manager to see what kind of video card you have and try to do an update.

You can get the newest drivers for the major players:

I have an NEC Server SI 1310 Server

It also has an Intel Xeon Inside? Is that good enough?
In this case the CPU is not the important part. It is the video card that has to support open gl and/or directx.
True - so what does this mean? Cant this machine solely handle to run this app?
