Highlighting Edges Takes Forever -- Started Recently

Hi all,


I am using SolidWorks 2017 Student Edition, and as of a couple weeks ago whenever I move my cursor over an object, all of the individual edges are highlighted one at a time, until they are all highlighted. While highlighting, nothing else can be done. I realize this means my graphics card is probably not supported/not powerful enough. However, using SolidWorks on my current machine was no problem, and was actually considerably faster than my previous laptop, until one day I booted it up and this problem showed up.


That being said, I'm thinking maybe there was an update that I could undo that happened sometime recently?


If not, I'll just turn off the highlighting feature and go from there.


Any ideas?


Thank you,




P.S. I am new to the forums, and I am not sure if "Educator / Student" applies to the Student Edition of SolidWorks, therefore if this is categorized incorrectly, please let me know and/or fix it (can that be done?).
