    Black screen on New Part in 2014/16

      I am running SolidWorks on an Alienware 13 R2 on Windows 10.

      Processor:    Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-6500U CPU @ 2.50GHz, 2592 Mhz, 2 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)

      Graphics Card:    NVIDIA GeForce GTX 960M   

      16GB ram

       

      Thanks for any help in advance!
