I have a student version of Revit 2012 and using it on a HP Pavilion dv6t Quad Edition laptop. I use a Logitech Performance MX mouse. Just recently, I've noticed that when I open any Revit file, my screen is black where the model is ( I can see the toolbar interface fine). I have to click into the model for the image to appear white. I'm also having issues using the wheel for zooming and panning. I can zoom and pan, but can't control the actions smoothly or with any accuracy. I have checked my mouse software to see if the wheel was assigned to the Middle Button (I tried the Generic one and that didn't work). Any suggestions? I have checked for the latest graphics drivers and I still using the one that was able to work in Revit before. Should I try to re-install Revit 2012? If so, will I need a new activation code? Thanks.
Solved! Go to Solution.
I doubt that it is the mouse. But it might be hardware acceleration. Go to the Application Menu (big "R") and choose Options at the bottom. Then click on the Graphics tab I think. Uncheck hardware acceleration and see if that does the trick.
