Hello
Just got this laptop for using it with SketchUp Pro (simple 3D modelling).
This laptop, a Dell Latitude D830, comes with a Nvidia Quadro NVS135M.

When using SketchUp I see the images clipping.

What could be the problem?  SketchUp? Nvidia Quadro? No idea...

Latest driver update is installed. Nvidia doesn't give direct support/drivers on this card.
Got all the latest drivers from Dell.

Any idea is welcome, thanks!

Since it's an nVidia video chipset, you can use nVidia's drivers on their website to update.  This could be a driver problem, but does the same problem occur in other apps?  A driver problem typically shows the same problem in other apps that use the same techniques for displaying.

Hi Callandor,
It just happens when using intensive 3D (that is, SketchUp). Other apps works fine.
As I said, nvidia don't support this chip because it comes with a Dell laptop.
Hence I have downloaded the latest drive and this is what happens.

Even though it comes with a Dell laptop, the underlying chipset is nVidia.  I have found that the latest driver can introduce new problems, so you may have to go back a few versions until you find one without this problem.  "Tearing" in 3D apps (and games) is typically a driver issue.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Callandar, can you pass me the URL you got?
I can't find a way into Nvidia page to get Quadro drivers (always returns errors)

Thanks!

I get a "Please try again at a later time.  Sorry for the inconvenience."  They may be having a problem with the server.

Using DriverAgent service, I found a driver to downgrade my installation.
It works fine now!
Thanks!
