Hello all, My SolidWorks keeps crashing on me when I'm opening CAD files. Maybe someone seen this before? My setup: Dell M6600 Laptop Workstation, i7 processor, 8MB RAM, 500GB Hard Drive, Windows 7 64Bit Professional. Usually connected to a Dell docking station. I also have a Dell U2410 24 inch monitor connected via the docking station. I have SolidWorks 2013 Standard installed. I've been working with a SolidWorks support guy trying to figure out why SolidWorks keeps crashing on me, but so far he's stumped. I've just got Dell involved and I've been instructed to do a few things. I contacted Dell support because I think maybe the monitor may be causing the problem (?). I did try opening files using only the laptop monitor, with the 24 monitor turned off. This is why I think it could be the monitor. The problem: I run SolidWorks on the 24 inch monitor. When opening CAD files, starting with top assembly drawing, then the assembly CAD files, and working myself down to individual part files and their drawings. At some point, usually between 5 to 8 files opened SolidWorks would close abruptly. Most times with no warning, sometimes the dialog box will open telling me SolidWorks had encountered a problem and will be closing down. The crash usually happens after Iâ€™ve clicked on the 'Open File' button. Sometime the window is greyed out, other times SolidWorks closes before I can select a file to open. I've had some crashing when doing something different. I've recorded several sessions and forward this to my support guy. After looking at these files he thought the problem may be with virtual memory. After fallowing his instructions, to do checkdsk, nothing improved. Verious settings were changed as well. Didnâ€™t help. I looked at the possibility of a corrupt file, but I was not able to identify one. Iâ€™m sending off a copy of the complete product Iâ€™ve been working on to see if he can experience a crash on his system, and maybe identify a corrupt CAD file. I've run a system diagnostic on the laptop, but all hardware passes, including the hard drive and RAM. Iâ€™ve changed cables from the DisplayPort cable and replaced it with a standard DVI cable. Didnâ€™t help. What Iâ€™m going to do tonight, as suggested by my SolidWorks and Dell support guys: Plug the monitor video cable directly to the laptop. Run another system diagnostic, which is different from the one I ran before. Start a session with SolidWorks and work off the laptopâ€™s monitor (if plugging the 24 inch monitor to the laptop does not work) and see if I get any crashes. If I do, then start SolidWorks up and record the sessions again. If anyone seen anything like this, and found out what was causing it, please let me know. Thanks all!
