well i just installed maya 7 PLE, and for some reason all my viewports show up "blank" (ie you cant see anything in them, however if you do a preview render of the viewport, you CAN see what you should be able to in the preview) I managed to get one of the viewports working, but I don't know how! Please help! Thanks..

I'm not sure if maya works anything like max but usually that means you have your viewports setup for the wrong renderer. Ex. directx, software, Ogl. I would try changing your render type.

Hey
Try to restore to default settings go to window/settings/performances/performances
on the top left click edit then restore to default settings
if this don't work you mite need to update you video drivers.
just for a test make a cube then hit the F_key <-- should zoom to the cube if its a camera clipping issue.

Hi, it cant be a driver issue (I dont think!) because i got one of the viewports to work by accident - so now I just have the other 3 to go (top, side, front)- If one is working, then it must be some setting or something that is individual for each viewport if my reasoning is correct.

When i press "F", the viewports do the usual zooming in/centering, and during this process I CAN see whatever I should be able to, but then once the centering/zooming process is complete its dissappears again

Did you try to restore to default settings? you can also set the camera clipping
in window/settings/performances/performances left side box "camera" set Near clip 0.001 Far clip 10000.000.
I suggested drivers because the same thing happened to me before and a new video driver salved the issue my opengl drivers did not install properly.

Everything is restored to default setting, nearclip & farclip is set correctly.

Here is a screenshot of what I see in the viewports after hitting "F" for each one:

What I can see

Hm, looks like it would be a near/far clipping issue, but you seem to have tried that, something I've noticed in maya 7 is that F tends to zoom out a lot sometimes, generally if you have deselected you geometry, have you tried setting the near/far clip and gone to View->Default Home. Also try changing the linear working units.
