you can zoom out (almost) infinitely from your drawing by entering the
ZOOM command. However, if you transparently zoom out (using the
real-time zoom or a mouse wheel), there is a limit. AutoCAD's zoom
command keeps an internal image of the current view (and it's
surroundings). This is called the 'display list'. Real-time zoom and
pan only zoom as long as the screen image is still in the display
list. If you try to zoom out more, AutoCAD first needs to recalculate
a larger display list. This is done automatically by the ZOOM and
Regen commands.

Have you tried doing a quick regen when you are zoomed out as far as
possible, this happens to me when zooming out a lot.
It allows you to zoom out further, then when told that you cant zoom any
further out, regen again.
