Graphics Freeze then zoom out to invisible dot

I have a Dell Precision T3610 with a Firepro W5000 Graphics card, running Windows 7, 64 bit.

I use Solidworks 2014, SP5.

The graphics driver is version, as recommended on the Solidworks website.

I also have a 3D Connexion Space Navigator connected, running driver version


Frequently, when I am zooming in and out, whether in Part, Assembly or Drawing mode, the graphics will freeze for up to about 10s before responding to any mouse movement.

When it does start responding, the model is zoomed out to an invisibly small dot on the screen.


This has happened 6 times in the last 2 hours, and is becoming difficult to put up with.


Is there anything I can do to make this setup work properly for me?
