There might be a slight hardware issue or a resource error.

We will start with a hardware issue investigation.

Check the hardware compatibility list and then post back in your next reply if your hardware is/is not listed and compatible for AutoCAD 2009.

Video Card

After you check that and it is listed, then make sure your Graphics card is up to date.

Okay, I think i know what the problem is, just not sure how to fix it. I tried uninstalling the whole program and getting rid of everything autocad related to make sure everything is deleted. I tried installing again and a message saying my machine contains a 3D Device that is not certified. You can check for updates and download the latest certification list at any time. Run the 3DCONFIG command and click the Check for Updates button. But the problem is, I tried checking for updates, but after it finish searching, it says Performance tuner failed to update. Please check your network connection and make sure you have write permission to the file...........So what am i suppose to do now?

Here is a log from Autocad 2009: and btw I am using an Intel Quad Core Q6600. I know all my hardware is more than enough to handle cad.

With it not being certified, it causes problems running autocad.

:huh: Download updates for Autocad and see if this solves the problem first. If your license server is up-to-date, then you may be in luck. Also, you need to check for updates for your driver. As Autocad improves, it needs updated drivers. It is the driver that is not certified, and the device is fine.

Direct3D driver: Not Certified

<a href="http://www.drivershq.com/Drivers/Devices/Dell-nVidia-GeForce-9800GT-Graphics-Driver/31971/22/Drivers.aspx" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">
First possibility</a>: check device to be sure of update!
Second possibility

System requirements For 64-bit AutoCAD 2009:

* Windows XP Professional x64 Edition or Windows Vista 64-bit
* AMDŽ 64 or Intel EM64T processor
* 2 GB RAM
* 750 MB free disk space for installation
* AutoCAD 64-bit cannot be installed on a 32-bit Windows operating system


:huh: Contact their support line.

Let me know if anything has worked for you!

I'd also suggest uninstalling your current video drivers (from Control Panel...Programs).
Then download the latest, WHQL certified version of the drivers for your system from here: http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us
Install them and see if that helps.

Sighhh, still lags, I am running out of ideas. Would avoiding autocad 09, and getting an older version of Cad might solve my problem?

Go for 2008. It should work better! It seems as if your video card is just too good for the program. :huh:
