Graphics cards and drivers if out of date or incompatible can sometimes be the reason for sluggish performance, strange behaviours or crashes.
Every Autodesk product has a list of certified graphics cards recommend for use. Each of these cards has been tried and tested and the specific driver version which works best with your product is recommend on the Autodesk site.
Please go to the following Autodesk site and check your main product, release, OS and graphics card manufacturer. To find out what your current driver is, type DXDIAG into your windows start menu (or Run option if your still using XP).
Make sure if you are going to upgrade your drivers that you use the ones from this site and that you have Admin rights, programs are shut, UAC is turned off and Anti-virus disabled.
