Check your graphic card driver for an update.
Go to Window/Preferences/Opengl and untick use Hardware Acceleration or Fast Feedback temporarily.

Turning off hardware acceleration confirms that the problem is with OpenGL support on your graphics hardware. You can continue with hardware acceleration turned off, but SketchUp’s performance will suffer badly.

You profile only says “intel” for Graphic Card, but if it is an integrated intel graphics, there have been many reports of OpenGL issues with those graphics. You best bet, if your computer can take it, may be to get a separate graphics adapter. Nvidia seem to have the fewest issues in SketchUp.
