I've got an HP XW8200 with an ATI Fire7100, two 3.6Ghz procs, 4GB ram. I've been noticing a couple of weird problems. In Maya, some of my floating menus don't display right (I can only see the grey frame in the color picker and I can't see the box when I drag a selection in the hypergraph), and in AE 7.0 I've been having some unusual problems. I checked my AE preferences and in the "Previews" section of the prefs, I looked under "Open GL info" and in the version field it said, "1.5.4650-failed to initialize". I can't find anything at the ATI site, the Maya site, or the Adobe site that gives me a clue. Anybody ever seen this?
You could try re-installing your vid drivers. Never had that problem.
