I have a Vaio FW390, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU T9550 2.66 Ghz, and 2.67 Ghz, 4GB Ram, 64 bit, with Windows 7 Pro. I only have Sketchup 2016 and Office 2010 installed on it. And Avast of course.
I was using Sketchup 2016 without any problems. But its Hard Drive was getting older so I got an SSD and installed Windows 7 on it. WEB of Viao says all my drivers are updated.
Then I downloaded Sketchup 2016 again from this forum and installed it.
Problem: Selection tool slowed down significanly! After drawing approx 200 shapes (all are rectanglar, simple shapes, very small file) dimensions starting to disappear when I use Orbit tool. Some colors disappear as well, then they all come back after a few seconds. The option ‘use hardware acceleration’ is NOT checkable.
I also tried Sketchup 8 and 2014, same problem exists.
If I install the old Hard Drive back, everything runs perfectly, with the same file (same workload).
What do you think is the problem?
Thanks a lot for your attention,
