    Solidworks 2016 runnung slow . Any advise

    Stephen Hunt

      Hi all ,

                I'm using Solidworks student version due to studying . In general the programme has been operating fine until about 3-4 days ago .

      When I open the programme it's taking longer to load than usual . it then jumps to the main screen , loads commands , tools etc but the main drawing area goes black for a few seconds before returning to normal .Then when I draw say a circle the circle appears seconds later . I uninstalled solidworks and did a re- install but it still runs slow . I'm running on windows 10 . My Desktop is only 4 months old and wasn't cheap . What else can cause this issue . Any help appreciated .
