AutoCAD 14 display

I've just starting using ACAD 14.
When I am drawing stuff it doesn't display until
I redraw or regenerate.
The same goes for deleting stuff, they stay on screen until I redraw or regenerate.
What is wrong here, surely there must be a way around this (autoredraw?) as it very annoying, and time consuming for big projects.
Cheers.

I think I tried that solution.
The thing is I have been using AutoCAD
for a few years, and when I upgrade to 14, is when I experience the problem.
I'll try it again for a sanity check.

Cheers.

Ok, I am using an STB nVidia Riva AGP card with 4MB RAM, the refresh rate is set to 72Hz.
I think thats optimal for the card (3yrs old).
It's a Gateway system, so it has a standard 19" Gateway monitor.
Windows graphics settings are 32-bit colour at 800x600 res.
Need any more?

Dell computers have unique issues with the Velocity 128 card that contribute to these type of display problems. Dell has made a patch available at:

I already have the driver version installed.
Changing the display to 256 colours is the solution.
Thanks very much.

Cheers.

Cool.  Thanks for the update on the color settings.  My guess is that you could also set your viewable resolution to something much higher like 1200x1024 or more.  I had a Matrox video card once that went to 2000x1600.  At that point it just scrolled like a dynamic pan feature.  It was so cool, I couldn't get enough of it.  Of course a 36" monitor might have done the trick.
