We have found that if you've installed any software AFTER SolidWorks it CAN make SolidWorks behave badly.
The BEST way to solve this is to do a REPAIR of the installation.
From Control Panel do an Add/remove programs, Change, then REPAIR.
Also, verify that you are using the "CERTIFIED" video card driver from the SolidWorks website.
