Graphics issue on a Lenovo W500 with Creo 1.0 W7 64bit

Graphics issue on a Lenovo W500 with Creo 1.0 W7 64bit

I am unable to find an updated driver for this excellent laptop from lenovo. It has an ATI Mobility FireGL V5700, which works excellent with Wildfire 4.0 and Windows 7 64 bit.

The issue is that when I open a second model/drawing/any pro/e window 1/5 of the window on the right hand side turns negative (like a picture negative,). It is black background and all of geometry is a bluish purple in that area. Any additional windows that I open have this issue.

Wondering if anyone else has run into this on other makes and models of laptop or work station.

I have an Lenovo S20 workstation with an Nvidia card and it runs is running smoothly at this time.

Hello!

The issue is that when I open a second model/drawing/any pro/e window 1/5 of the window on the right hand side turns negative (like a picture negative,). It is black background and all of geometry is a bluish purple in that area. Any additional windows that I open have this issue.

Could you show a screenshot with this problem?

Latest Graphics driver appears to have addressed the issue. After this latest graphics driver update I have been unable to get the issue to reproduce.

Hi David.

I have a couple of users on a Lenovo w500 with same ATI graphic card as you have.

But I have not been able to find a driver which solves the problem.

Actually with the latest driver from ATI Creo 1.0 is not able to start up at all.

Can you send me the detailed Driver Date and Driver version?

Thanks in advance

Wow they make replying way harder than it should still not sure how I got the reply button to finally appear. Peter I am unable to help you with this one. We have replaced our w500 with the w520. the w520 is not showing this issue.

David,

Thanks for your quick responce. I have come to the same conclusion. We will replace the w500 with w520 with Nvidia graphic card as well.
