This is typical of either an incompatible video card driver or a problem with AutoCADs video driver.  You can either update your video driver (nVidia or ATI, etc.) or you can try reinstalling AutoCAD.  Both usually resolve the problem.


Alternately, you may be able to resolve this problem in one of the following ways:


At the command line, enter 3dconfig. Click the Manual Tune button. Toggle the checkbox for Enable hardware acceleration. Click OK twice.


If that doesn't work, right-click the program icon on your desktop. Click Properties. Click the Shortcut tab. In the Target field, after *.exe”, type a space and enter /NOHARDWARE


You should now be able to launch AutoCAD.


Good Luck!
