We have some Dell Precision 360's P4 3.2GHz  with Quadro FX3000's, 1gig ram, XP Pro SP2.  Since upgrading to 2007, whenopening drawings (even a simple component detail), SolidWorks justhangs and never finishes opening the file.  Windows TaskManager shows the processor at idle.
If run in 'Software open GL' checked, files open fine, indicating agraphics driver issue. I'm using the recommended driver from theSolidWorks site, 7.5.5.6 (this driver has a date of7/13/ 2005).
I believe the previously installed driver from the nVidiawebsite was newer, and worked well with SW2006.  I changed tothis one due to the issues described above but have seen nochange.

Anyone using a different/newer driver for this card withoutissues?
