I can get into cocreate but when i start drawing, the screen goes blank and i cant see my drawing at all unless i zoom in or out or etc. I havent been able to figure out if there was a graphics setting that was the cause this or not. I have used other software that required I change some settings and it ran fine. Since I do not have a graphics card, is there any way for me to still use CoCreate PE?

On Intel Graphic Media Accelerator the Hardware Acceleration especially in connection with the Enhanced Realism Option is not working reliably. If you are using Creo Elements/Direct Modeling PE 3.0 on a hardware with Intel Graphic Media Accelerator it is recommended to set the following environment variable: SDPIXELFORMAT=SOFTWARE this will disable the Hardware Acceleration including the Enhanced Realism option.
If the Enhanced Realism Option has been activated in a Modeling PE session it might fail to start in the next session. If you experience such a situation, as a workaround you can remove the users application data folder for Modeling PE: ...\Application Data\CoCreate\CoCreate Modeling Personal Edition3\30.0 Then restart Creo Elements/Direct Modeling PE 3.0 and remember to deactivate Enhanced Realism before ending the next Modeling PE session.
