Hi there. I’ve recently been using Rhino for the past year and this year once I download Rhino it wont seem to load the app. Are you able to help me out at all. I tried looking at a thread where it said to change the graphics on the display settings and I’m not too sure where to go from here.
First thing to do, is to see if Rhino will run in Safe Mode. Go to the Windows Start button and look/search for Rhino 6/7 in Safe Mode. If Rhino succesfully starts, type the command SystemInfo in Rhino and copy/paste the resulting text here - that will give us an idea of what might be going on.

Every time I click on Rhino and click “repair” my computer will re-start and run Rhino. Otherwise it still wont run in safemode.
Both your graphics drivers are 3½ years old, which is a lot in terms of graphics drivers. If you upgrade them, there’s a good chance that your system should work. Both Intel and Nvidia have much more recent drivers. In general, you should probably check for updates every 3-4 months as a minimum. Also here’s link to @theoutside’s brilliant write-up on what to beware of with hybrid graphics systems: Soooo, you bought a laptop with hybrid graphics and rhino doesn't run right. READ THIS
Edit: Here are links for both drivers
