I am currently a user of SolidWorks 2018 student edition. The problem I had was occurring with the 2017 version as well. I was fine until a few months ago. Solidworks has been running ridiculously slow. It takes a full minute to even sketch a rectangle. I saw the posts about the graphics card driver so I redownloaded the driver (note I wasn't able to find my graphics card listed with the link Solidwork Rx gave). The problem is still not fixed. I have Intel HD graphics 2500. This is the link I got the driver from. Downloads for Intel® HD Graphics 2500. Attached is my Solidworks Rx read out.
Thank you very much
