View area not updating, 2008 sp1.0

On two seperate assembly drawings I am having an issue where after switchting to the drawing or switching drawing pages the view area no longer updates. I can see and use the menus without trouble and blindly select items. Task manager shows that Solidworks is sitting idle. I have to restart Solidworks to get it work again. I did not see this issue in sw2007, exept these used to get the 'failed to save error'.

It does this after about 5 mins of work.
Video drivers are up to date.

The assemblies are approx 200 parts each with 20+ configurations. About 1/4 of the parts have configurations themselves. The drawings use all configurations and are 12 to 14 pages. All other smaller assemblies and drawings are working fine for us.

Any suggestions on how to get around this issue would be appreciated.
