Introduction and Maya display problem

Hi guys

First off I'll introduce myself.

I was a Photoshop artist for 5 years, and after about 6 months of spending hours a day learning Maya, I now have been accepted into one of the best game design academies in Australia (I start in 2011)

I decided to join this place in an effort to learn more about designing and from more experienced 3D artists, and also just to socialise a bit

Okay here's my details.

Running Maya 2011 x64 on Windows 7 x 64 Ultimate.

CPU: Intel Quadcore
Graphics: Nvidia 9500 GT 1GB
RAM: 4GB

Here's the issue:

Whenever I zoom out, half the image disappears.

If I zoom back too much, I can't see anything except empty 3D space. I had Maya 2009 on exactly the same set up and it was fine.

I have tried reinstalling Maya, and my graphics drivers, but nothing has helped. I even downloaded the Maya hotfix 3 file from Autodesk, and still the problem presists.

Here are some screen grabs to give you a better idea.

I'm only a beginner at Maya, but learning quickly, however this has me stumped. If anyone can shed some light on what the problem might be, I would really appreciate it.

Cheers

In the menus go to Window/Settings Preferences/Preferences.
In the preferences box select Camera and adjust the near and far clip planes.
They are set to something like 0.1 and 10000 by default.
Set them to something like 100000 each and you should be good to go.
I think you have to restart Maya for the changes to work in all viewports.

Thanks for the effort Fredddy, I tried it, and the problem is still there. I think maybe my graphics card is too ****ty to work with Maya 2011. If you think its something else, do you have any other ideas?

Cheers
