Couple of days ago I upgraded SWX to 2019 from 2018 after that my Real View Graphics button is inactive. How to fix it?
Does your graphics card support RealView Graphics?

I found this link in another forum post, maybe its worth trying.

My GC supports RealView Graphics. It was active with SWX 2018 but with SWX 2019 it is inactive though I installed driver for SWX 2019.
I can see my GC in Registry. But I do not know what to do after that.
Solidworks may be defaulting to your onboard graphics instead of your graphics card. Try going to the control panel for your graphics card to force solidworks to yous it. (not sure how to do this for AMD cards)
Hope this helps.
If you know how do it for other card I can try for AMD.
Sure thing. If I right click on my desktop I get the option for NVIDIA control panel, one open I can the go to Manage 3D settings > Program settings > select program (or add program) > specify the graphics card I wish to use for this application.
What you say is correct but I do know how do it. Registry shows default on board CG where as Device manager shows two GCs.
Can you post screen shot of your BIOS?
I wish to know whether it is possible to take a screenshot BIOS because computer will go to setup mode when seeing BIOS.
in the Windows Device Manager you will be able to de-activate the unwanted Intel graphics with the context menu (right mouse click).
I tried that one but screen appearance was not satisfactory.
Have you tried running a repair of your Solidworks install?
This was what VAR said. I have already done repairing. But I do not know large assembly mode under tools. Only I know large assembly in the options.
Maha,.. look at this link.. about half way down.. they show the AMD Pro app and how to apply Applications to the Presets.. see if that forces the FirePro to work?
Solidworks only uses slow integrated GPU | MySolidWorks
..btw,.. if you do a recent google search about recent Windows 10 and AMD driver issues.. it seems MicroSoft has mess up AMD drivers lately... and there is a fix in the next update/release which is suppose to fix them?
Given that you did not show your image with the Video expanded - I assume that you found no useful information by drilling down there.
On my laptop (Alienware) I can use Fn F7 to get to discrete graphics card.
Any hints there?
In my view this seems most appropriate one. Even though I am not sure because I do not want to tamper with unknown things.
It is this sentence discourages me.
Yes, that is the correct setting. You want the system to use the ATI Radeon.
In many computers the integrated graphics has it's own connector, residing on the motherboard. In other cases - e.g. notebooks - both graphics cards uses the same connector. So don't worry. Activate the ATI only and then have a look at your PC. If necessary, attach the monitor to the graphics card and everything will be o.k.
use Search Command to find the Large Assembly icon or menu item.
Even though ATI Randeon HD Graphics is selected SWX is not detecting ADM GC.
odd,... hey Maha,.. can you RMB over the exe or your shortcut and force it to run the AMD graphics processor? (I'm showing my nvidia but you should have AMD)... image attached..
