Can't see lines as I draw them or see objects as I move them

I just installed 2015 and most everything works fine except when I draw a line I can't see it until after I draw it.  If I draw a polyline I can only see the previous segments I have drawn.  If I move something I can't see something until I place it.  I have an AMD Radeon HD 7970M graphics gard.

Check DRAGMODE and make sure it's on.

 

Didn't think dragmode affected drawing lines but if I turn off dragmode in 2015 SP1 I can't see the line until completing the command either.

 

When set to Auto or On it works as expected.

Sounds like it could possibly be this dynamic input issue?

Gave it a shot but no dice. I'll be sure to also report to Autodesk though. Thanks for the help.

There's a system variable called highlight. Type HIGHLIGHT at the command line and be sure it's set to 1.

Es no bueno Lisa but my boy just after you found the trick.  It was DRAGMODE.  I'll never go drag mode but it works for my computer.  Who am I to judge.

Winner winner chicken chicken dinner.  Jay, you are the man.  Thank you so much.  I feel like I got a part of my soul back.  That was so awful.
