Hmmm. Sounds like something may have gotten corrupted. Try reinstalling. Couldn't hurt. Make sure you back up any preferences first to save yourself the time of having to redo them all again.

Hi,

I had this problem once as well. Didn't have to do a drastic re-install, I simply deleted the user preference file, and Viola! Oh and don't worry, it will automatically make another upon launching maya again.

Goodluck

funny thing is that I have tried everything, i rolled back my video drivers about 4 versions, I deleted the preferences folder and i still have the same problem
RIght now 4.5 works for me....so i am using that.
