  • Multiple Display Adapters or Graphics Cards

    PVA - Admin

    It is increasingly common for hardware manufacturers to include both a dedicated graphics card and an integrated graphics card in modern hardware, especially in the case of laptops/notebooks. Vectorworks runs best when using a dedicated graphics card (or GPU) as opposed to an integrated one. There are different ways to ensure that your machine is using the correct card depending on your operating system:

    I have a HP Pavilion all in on and HP laptop - both from 2015. Vectorworks 19 started crashing on the Pavilion. Installed update for AMD Graphics card and Vectorworks stopped opening. Installed Vectorworks 2021 and this opened. All was good until I turned off the computer and VW21 stopped opening with graphic card errors coming up. Uninstalled/Reinstalled AMD about 20 times and finally VW21 opened again. Was fine until I turned my computer off 4 days later now can't get it back


    Installed VW21 to laptop and opens with a note re graphics card not sufficient...


    HP Pavilion has Intel Card and AMD. Laptop just Intel(R) HD Graphics 3000.


    What do I do?? Why won't VW work with HP? Why does VW stop when computer restarts?
