Default guys please help me out here - maya behaviours

HELP PLEASE !

I have two big problems ...
First, I have no idea why but maya's selection habits have changed ... for example if I have to objects in a straight line and I click the one towards me it selects the one behind ... it's like maya is mocking me )
Not only that but same rule applies to faces/edges. If I have a place (like a head for example) I can barely choose the front row of edges without it selecting the back ones ! (no dragging, just simple click) ... and somehow I think that the pointer isn't exact any more ... sometimes it works ok but sometimes I have to click with the middle of the arrow instead of it's tip to get smth selected ... any idea what in the hell is happening ?

Second ... is I am in object mode, and I pull verts my image planes get messed up while I zoom towards them. Any idea of what this issue might be ? If I am in normal object mode they don't change shape but if I'm in component and zoom towards them they get a distortion as if I would look at them through a magnifier glass at an angle.

Any idea how to solve this ?

Thanks for reading,
Vick.

Sounds like it might be your video card. What kind are you running with your system?

ati radeon 9550 GU .. 128 megs ... I also get some anomalies when starting maya sometimes (colors get mixed up for half of my screen, but after I kill maya and restart it it works fine ... I think it's maya related ...)
