Default Cant select anything

So I am working on an animation and when I select a joint it it wont show any manipulator tool, and it shows I have the object selected in the attribute editor but it doesnt change colors when I click on the object its self, almost like it wasnt selecting it but it even allows me to focus on the "selected" area.

Any ideas?

Sounds like a graphics card issue, what card do you have, is it one of Autodesks recommended ones?

You could always try to see if there are any driver updates.

Cheers,
Chris

Its a Radeon Xpress 200m, it was working fine and then it messed up on one view, not sure if i hit a hot key or something, and then now its not working on another window.

Posting pic to show whats going on hopefully that will help.

go in to your show menu for each of those windows that don't show anything , my guess is you have selection highlighting turned off, as well as manipulators and other things, turn them back on.
