Possible Video Card Problems?

To All Members of the Discussion Group,


Recently in my office we have been seeing a lot of problems with  running several versions of AutoCAD.

The main issue, or problem is that visually only half of our group is able to see, or read files entirely.

Even if we knock the files down to Acad2008, on some computers, the members of our team are unable to read files.

So, we all have the same model laptops, or  desktops what could be the cause of these problems?

what exactly was the software that created the last DWG? And did you use a vertical product or plain AutoCAD? (As the screenshots show MEP).

What happens when you start command _AUDIT? Any errors found in the drawing?

If you are using MEP what happens if you save the drawing back to an older version using command _EXPORTTOAUTOCAD (hope that exists in your version, if not look for commands like AECEXPORT.....)
