What's wrong with my SolidWorks 2010? Always overlapping

What's wrong with my SolidWorks 2010? Always overlapping

I just installed Solidworks 2010(64bit) on my laptop, but when I use 2d or 3d it always has overlapping when i roll the mouse middle button, see the attached photo.

don't know why. My laptop is Toshiba Satellite L350D, AMD Turion 64X2 Dual-Core 2GHz, 4GB 800Mhz SDRAM, 250GB HDD with Vista 64 bit system.

Graphics processor: ATI Radeon X1250

Is my laptop too slow for the SolidWorks 2010? Or the Vista doesn't support SW2010 very well?


RE: What's wrong with my SolidWorks 2010? Always overlapping

the problem is caused by the


Graphics processor: ATI Radeon X1250

The Radeon series is not suitable for SW. See the following link for approved cards.

However, some people have been reporting that RealHack 1.5 from http://hotfile.com/dl/90367037/e54bf38/RealHack.rar.html has been successful in soft-modding (at least for RealView) non-approved GeForce and Radeon cards.

Thanks a lot, CorBlimeyLimey, I installed the "new" drivers(10-2_legacy_vista32-64_dd_ccc) of the ATI card, now it's fine with SolidWorks...thank you again.

It looks like an MC Escher drawing
