I'm a student in a french engineering school and they gave us a licence for solidworks.

I downloaded the package and installed it perfectly fine.

However, when i try to use it, the bar on the left isnt displaying as long as i dont put my cursor on it , and same for the menu under the top bar (the one with function, sketch,...)

Solidworks specs:

solidworks 2018, activated with a student key, sdk number: XSEK12


Computer specs:

Processor: amd ryzen 5 3550H

Graphic card : nvidia geforce gtx 1650, drivers updated

Ram: 8 Go


Thank you in advance for your answers

EDIT 09/21/19 19:35 Thanks to Glenn Schroeder, I state that the problem was coming from the graphic card (tried to use solidworks's own OpenGL and it worked perfectly fine, even though it was laggy ). So I updated the drivers once more only to find I didn''t have exactly the right ones for my graphic card, downloaded and installed the right ones but I still got the issue
