Unable to plot 74k points

Doing some research here and I have a file that has 74k points.  Even on a blank map I am unable to plot all 74k of them, but if I cut them down to less than 10k it will populate just fine. I'm not sure why this is happening as I have been able to plot more than 10k before.


Steps I am taking:

1. Add Data

2. Choose XLXS (excel) file containing 74k lat long entry points

3. choose sheet 1, where all the data is located.

4. ToC loads sheet and I right click and Display XY data

5. Field X= Longitude Y=Latitude

6. map will populate if under 10k but with 74k nothing populates, but sometimes will get some locations off the west coast of Africa.


Any assistance is helpful.  I wanted to also try to do a Spatial Density Plot on those points once they are plotted
