This article explains how to switch off hardware acceleration in AutoVue. This will make AutoVue use the computer's processor to render images instead of using the graphics card. This usually improves performance and avoids compatibility problems with certain graphics cards or outdated video drivers. Hardware acceleration is the process used by graphic cards (video cards) to perform complex graphical functions faster than when normally handled by the CPU.

If display problems occur when doing measurements in AutoVue such as when scrolling the cursor over a drawing to pick a measuring point that area goes white and the drawing section at that point is gone. Another issue which may occur is that the different parts of a drawing are dispersed in a cross like layout in the Applet. These issues could be due to some improper hardware acceleration settings.
