"WHIP failed to initialize" message on newer MacBook Pro

Why do I suddenly get a "WHIP failed to initialize" message when opening a file in Autocad 2013 for Mac on a 2010 MacBook Pro with a compatible graphics card? It has been working fine until a few days ago. My wife updated from a student copy of Autocad 2011 for Mac last year and has had no problems until now. The only answer according to the brain trust at @autodeskhelp is to get a new graphics card. I'm doing a system diagnostic now. But as far as I know the graphics card is working just fine. The autodeskhelp crew suggested I might need to update with the latest service pack but that made no difference either.


Mid-2010 MacBook Pro 6.2

OS X version 10.6.8

Intel Core i7
