Last week, I had to return my recently purchased Dell Inspiron as it had that problematic Intel Graphics Card and was continually crashing SketchUp Pro 2015. Even after I installed the 32 bit version, it still wasn’t working properly.
After reading needed specs from both SketchUp and suggested specs from the SketchUp community, I purchased the ASUS Q551L. Many of the specs on this computer exceeded the needed spec requirements to run SketchUp Pro 2015. After using SketchUp a couple times, my model began to crash frequently on my newly purchased PC. I was just building some very simple walls/initial structures and was surprised it crashed several times.
This is my second computer I have bought/tested to best accommodate SketchUp Pro 2015 (64 bit). All my other programs (AutoCAD, Illustrator, Photoshop, etc) have worked perfectly on both the Dell Inspiron and ASUS Q551L. Can someone PLEASE suggest a PC (and needed requirements) in order to run SketchUp Pro 2015 without consistent crashing/bug splats? Would GREATLY appreciate it. Really trying to get some needed work done and need a computer that will best run SketchUp Pro 2015.
Also, if anyone has any suggestions to any adjustments I need to make on my graphics card on my ASUS Q551L computer (NVDIA GT840 M), please let me know.
For a point of reference, here are the specs on the ASUS Q551L. Again, these specs should work based upon SketchUp’s guidelines and some of the guidelines the community has posted.
ASUS Q551L Processor - 2.4 Ghz
ASUS Q551L RAM - 8G
ASUS Q551L 3D Video Card - NVIDIA GT 840M - System Memory RAM (1666 Megahrz) and Video Memory (2000 Megabytes)
ASUS Q551L CPU - Intel 5th Generation Core I7 (5500U CPU)
