Since I only know what you wrote.
To start with I would run Solidworks RX > Diagnostics i.e. check the driver.
- Try to bring the image quality sliders down in Document properties > image quality
- Check if you have "Use software open GL" in System Options > Performance. ( You don´t want that check marked).

I have a fairly complex model of a lens with a number of optical features, so there are a lot of surfaces/faces. I normally run in shaded with edges mode, real view turned off. This is crawling, most often just stating "generating graphics" down on the status bar, even when trying to edit a simple feature. I could understand rebuilds taking a long time, but how do I improve the "graphics" speed.
I have a Quadro K4000 card, and normally run better than this. Is there a setting to temporarily disable or adjust?
Just reduce the image quality of that document.
