    Solidworks 2016 crashes when I start a sketch

    Jordan Bendler

      I have been able to use my Solidworks 2016 Student edition for a long time with no issues. But all of the sudden Solidworks is crashing as soon as a start a sketch. When I run Solidworks in the "safe modes" (both OpenGL and the toolbox bypass), it works no problem. I haven't intentionally updated or changed any graphic drivers. Can anyone help me out here?  I've attached the Solidworks Performance Log from the crash.

          Hi Jordan,

          Your statement "I haven't intentionally updated or changed any graphic drivers" begs the question as to whether your system has done any updates in the background that you are not aware of. Is your system set to "auto-update" and therefore you may not be aware that perhaps your graphics card has had a driver update that is not performing well and may need rolling back?
