Question Rotate manipulator display problems.

Hi everyone, im new here and relativley new to maya. My problem is the rotate manipulator only shows up in one panel, and in that panel when I zoom, the manipulator stays the same size.It does not scale with the object. It seems to be stuck on some kind of global setting or something. In that same panel the move tool brings up black bow-tie shaped manipulators I dont recognise. The scale tool does not show up in this panel, and only shows up in one other panel. I cant model or animate with these settings... How can I reset these to factory settings?

sounds like u need to update the display drivers...go to the manufacturer's site and get the latest drivers. that's normally the problem.

Some ATI cards cause this problem, also make sure you are running in 32bit mode.
