Why does my pc bog down (stop) when I'm working in a drwing of a large assembly? Also, I get this error alot: "the Nvidia open gl driver lost connection with the display and is unable to continue",  and also this one alot, display driver has stopped responding and has recovered, and this one  "The nvidia open gl driver detected a problem with the display driver and is unable to continue. These are some I get not to mention a blue screen atleast once a week. One last thing. My boss just bought me a used Dell monitor, I think it is a 27", and the screen are is shrinking. I am told by my boss that all of these issues are software related. I have been using solidworks since 1997 and I know that is not the case.  HELP!!!!!


Here is my system set up


Amd 2.8 ghz

8 g memory

windows 7, 64 bit

Nvisia Quadro FX 5800  (my boss bought this used, actually a PNY)

solidworks 2011 SP4
