My computer freezes when I run a thermal simulation. It stops at 99% and does not run anymore. Do I need more RAM or my video card does not support Solidworks simulation? This only happens when I run a large model (approximately 80 MB of file including parts and assembly.)

 

This is my system properties:

  • 2.00 GB of RAM
  • Intel (R) Core (TM)2 Duo CPU E8400 @3.00 GHz
  • 64 bit operating system
  • Graphics: STD VGA Graphics for DELL

 

 

My other computer (which I run simulation on):

  • 4.00 GB of RAM
  • Intel (R) Core (TM) i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20 GHz
  • 64 bit operating system
  • Graphics: STD VGA Graphics for DELL

 

 

Thank you!
