Question about Intel Motherboard
WE HAVE A PROBLEM WITH LENOVO DESKTOP COMPUTER MODEL NO.5312 3AQ, EQUIPPED WITH SIS 968 MOTHERBOARD AND 2 GB RAM. WHEN WE TRY TO RUN ANY MECHANICAL ENGINEERING BASED SOFTWARES LIKE SOLIDWORKS, UNIGRAPHICS, AUTOCAD, PRO-E ETC., THE SYSTEM HANGS WITHIN 5 SECONDS OF OPENING THE FILE.
THE DESKTOP IS BRAND NEW, AND NO OTHER DATS OR CONFLICTING SOFTWARES ARE THERE.
WHEN WE CHANGE THE MOTHERBOARD WITH INTEL 946GZ, THE SYSTEM PERFORMS BEAUTIFULLY, EVEN WITH 512MB RAM.

The Sis things do not support OpenGL mode of graphics. If your software can switch to DirectX mode then it will work. There is no otherway as of now. Hope the Sis guys notice this.
There is a cheap alternative. Buy a low cost intel/nvidia/geforce video card (new/old); disbale the onboard Sis video and use that new/old card.
You may try it.

Are you re-loading the operating system with each board change. You have to at least swap the hard drive if you are not re-loading the system. The drivers would not be the same and that would cause it to hang. Is it doing it on a fresh load? I guess that is what you mean by no DATS or Conflicting software. Have you updated the drivers? It could be the video. The video on the 968 might not be supported by the software. This sounds strange.
What O.S. are you using?
Lenovo is IBM / Hitachi. You stated that the motherboards are SIS (what motherboard company is it?) and Intel. What Video is on each board. The SIS based boards are not the top of the line chipsets. You are using high end software. This could be your problem. I researched the Internet and verified that the SIS chipset is a low end chipset used by brand name computer companies.
Although you mentioned the SIS chipset, I am not sure if it is controlling the graphics. There might be another chipset for the graphics as I seen this on another motherboard.
Now on the other hand I researched the Intel 945GZ Motherboard and the graphics on this board are almost just as good as video cards.
I am sure that this is where you are getting better performance out of the Intel motherboard. People do not realize that you can put a great processor and memory on a bad chipset, and them put the same thing or less on a better chipset, and it will perform better. The chipset is the Core of the motherboard. Not the memory and processor. You proved my point in your experiment. I research my systems for a week before I decide what to use. I do this for my customers as well. I only use ASUS MOTHERBOARDS and then get the best chipset. You need a high end motherboard to do your work. Look at the ASUS web site at the motherboards that can handle 1600 to 1800 FSB. This is what you need to be working with. They will last you a long time and do the job for you. You do not need to even try to use those programs with a store bought computer, because the store bought computers are not made for that kind of work. My we site is here.
I try to explain this to all of my customers and that is why my customers come back to me years later.
Now I did not fix your computer, but I did answer your question. Please rate me as a fixa if you are happy with my answer.
