Using 3D connexion in Solidworks the model flies off screen
Hi I'm using a 3D connexion Space explorer to control the solid model in Solidworks. Sometimes when i touch the cap of the Space explorer the model flies off the screen. i haven't adjusted the sensitivity or anything like that it just seems that one of the axes is a bit faulty. Its a newish controller i had it from new. It just seems bit jumpy. Just wondering has anyone had any issues like this?

Most probably your hardware ie graphic card do not support software requirements.
Autocad 2009 system requirements for Win XP.
32-bit AutoCAD 2009
Running under Windows XP:
•Microsoft Windows XP SP2 operating system •Intel® Pentium® 4 processor or AMD Athlon®, 2.2 GHz or greater or Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 1.6 GHz or greater •1 GB RAM •750 MB free hard disk space for installation •1024x768 VGA with true color •Microsoft Internet Explorer 6.0 (SP1 or higher)
If you are using AutoCAD for 3D modeling, you should bump up your system as follows:
•Intel Pentium 4 processor or AMD Athlon, 3.0 GHz or greater or Intel or AMD Dual Core processor, 2.0 GHz or greater •2 GB RAM or greater •2 GB of additional free hard disk space •1,280 x 1,024 32-bit color video display adapter (true color) 128 MB or greater, OpenGL or Direct3D capable workstation class graphics card.

You don't mention the program so I can't tell you specifics but generally 2d such as autocad want a Heidi driver or a newer direct-x. 3D cad such as solidworks can be very picky what video cards they will work with. Generally direct x or open-gl must be supported along with minimum ram and certain chipsets being required.
This sounds like it could be a driver issue. I have seen solidworks cause crashes and lock-ups whedn any microsoft applications are running, most notably outlook. Assuming you have plenty of memory (2Gb+ essential) and all latest service packs/drivers, it could be a problem with the graphics card, possibly an overheating issue.
You can try using the windows driver for a generic 3 button or wheel mouse. That may require that you go to control panel system hardware and then find your mouse then select update driver and pick one of the generic or microsoft drivers that have the same functions. The problem may show up when you reboot and windows tries to reload the original driver.
