Got a brand-new PC and Blender is VERY slow. Slowness is apparent as soon as I launch Blender. Rolling mouse over buttons, I can watch the words being re-drawn. Spacebar menu even slower. Rendering default cube scene takes 15+ seconds!
I’ve seen forum posts about downloading a .dll and custom compiles of older Blender versions. But I’m not sure which path to follow.
EXACTLY what should I do to fix this problem? If .dll related, where do I get the file(s) and what do I do with them? Must Blender or Win-XP Pro be re-configured to point to the new files? I am not a hardware jockey so please speak slowly
Video card: “PowerSpec Certified Radeon 7000 -Graphics by ATI” Card details: Bus type: AGP 2X/4X, 32MB DDR video memory, 64-bit memory interface, DX 7.0/8.0 Direct X support, Open GL support, VGA, DVI, Hyperz technology, Video Immersion I technology, and Hydravision.
Win-XP Pro, Service Pack 2
AMD Athlon XP 2400+, Soyo motherboard
Blender 2.34 and 2.32 behave the same.
Reducing the resolution helps a little but it’s still unuseably slow.
TIA for any help!
