I installed a Diamond Viper 330 video card; now when I draw a line in AutoCAD I can't see it until I move the drawing. HELP!

You can try their website for a newer driver??? We've had to do that with our old Diamond card.

acad likes some video cards to be set to 256 colours. if the updated driver does not help try the 256 colour mode.

After the 2012 update of CADWorx, one of my designers failed to see the temporary line that AutoCAD draws before completion of the command. I tried suggestions from different discussion forums but nothing worked. Since the lines (or circles or arcs) were being drawn to the correct colors, I thought that the temporary line must be the same color as the background. I changed the color of background and the temporary lines started appearing. With some trials and errors, I managed to find that it is controlled by 'Dynamic Dimension Lines'. Hope this helps somebody!
