solidworks started laging, while my gpu en cpu both stayed under 30%. What caused this and how do i fix it?
You may want to check out this thread then (Slow performance with GTX960m in SW2016 ) as there appears to be a lot of slow performance since a recent NVidia driver release a couple weeks ago. Consensus is that updating your drive with the latest of www.geforce.com or rolling back your driver to the previous installed version is able to help
When did this start and what GPU do you have?
i havent used solid works for about a month now. It started today when i opened it for the first time after the month without using it.
And my gpu is a nvidia geforce gtx 960m.
I have tried to change some stuff in the nvidia controller, but after that did not work, i resetted the setting so they where default againg.
i also tried the repair tool from solid works. but afther that was about 50% compleet it gave an error and said to save summarylog and contact the tech support.
So thats what has happend. I hope you know whats going on, cause i sure don't.
Thanks man, I installed the correct driver, and after a bit of fiddling with solidworks it started working like it used to.
You saved me man. Really, thank you
kewl!... which specific driver did you install? (so others users will know)
1. I went to the nvidia site,
2. Then in the tab drivers i clicked for all drivers
3. i searched for my specific geforce
4. and then pressed download
This was the site with the specific driver i downloaded: NVIDIA DRIVERS GeForce Game Ready Driver WHQL
Hope this will help people in the future.
Note that under the tab supported products it has my gpu (geforce gtx 960m), So check that before you download a new driver, and it might be a smart idea to make a backup of the driver you have installed, so you have something to come back to if the new one doesn't works.
I know this is entirely irrelevant but when I first saw this post I read it as "SOLIDWORKS started laughing"
