      Recently I have been getting this error with Solidworks, where only solidworks top and bottom panel is visible and the graphics area is empty and not workable at all. I have to close out of Solidworks multiple times till I have the full screen again. Anybody got any answers to this? I have pasted some screen shots & the system's configuration below:
