    Open second part file, window shows black

      I don't know if this is the correct forum.


      I have a strange issue.  It appears it may be a graphical issue but I can't be certain.  I can open up and run Solidworks just fine, and open up a part and view it regularly.  If I go to open up a second part file, it opens up and displays a completely black window, sometimes with edges highlighted in orange of the part file but usually not.  When I change my view by dragging with the mouse wheel pick and hold, I can see the part.  When I release the mouse wheel, the window goes black again.

      Sometimes this causes wierd texture issues in the first part I open after the second part is open.  But the first part is visible.


      System specs:

      Solidworks 2016

      Dell T3500

      (2) Nvidia Quadro FX1800 cards (Nvidia Driver 340.52 - Solidworks Rx approved and recommended by the website)

      Xeon W3580

      24GB Ram

      Win7 x64 Sp1
