Default translate, rotate, scale problem

Ok, so I had Maya 8 on my computer. I then reformatted my computer and reinstalled Maya 8. Now, after doing some modeling and stuff, I noticed that I couldnt rotate or scale while in any view besides perspective. I can translate just fine in all the views. But when in Top View or something, and I select an object, and then click either rotate or scale, nothing comes up except faint gray lines with faint gray boxes on the end. I cant select these gray lines or anything. Now, when on my school's computers, I can rotate and scale in any view. This is REALLY annoying. Is there some setting I messed up? THanks.

Update: I renamed the maya folder in My Documents to force maya to create a new one. Now, I can only Rotate in Top view and not in Perspective. And I can only Scale in Perspective. WHAT IS GOING ON!?!

This is exactly the problem I have. Anyhow If I sort it out I'll let you know. I've heard that it's a bug with Maya 8, I've also heard that it's a problem with some graphics cards.

As far as can remeber this issue was resolved by installing the Maya 8 Bonus Tools and any updates that came with it. Grab them at www.the-area.com
