I've only ever seen this problem when the video card that's being used isn't compatible with Maya. I would be surprised though if your 400 GPU would have any problems so I'm stumped.

Sorry for being no help what so ever,

Mat.

i fixed mine by grabbing a copy of maya 5 off of one of my m8s from college i gonna try reinstalling the gpu drivers now to see if it fixes 6.5, not sure if it will though as i've reinstalled windows before and the problem persisted.

Installing windows isnt the same as updating your graphics card drivers, all reinstalling windows will do it use a default driver which might be the problem.

Go to your card manufacturers website and grab the latest drivers, see if that works.
