Whole Face Selection Bug

I'm trying to select faces on my model, but the selection is always a completely different face than what my cursor is on. It looks just like this: https://forums.autodesk.com/t5/maya-modeling/face-selection-not-selecting-the-faces-that-i-want/td-p...

 

It works if I set the selection to center, but not whole face (which I would much prefer to use).

 

I'm guessing it's a hardware bug, as I haven't had this problem at all while working on my other computer. It's only a problem on my Dell XPS 13.

 

I have already tried re-installing and deleting my preferences.

 

If you have any ideas for fixing this, I would really appreciate it!

Hi,

 

Sounds like it could be an issue with your graphics card driver.

 

Try going into the Windows > Settings/Preferences > Preferences > Display > Rendering Engine and setting that to DirectX 11 and then restarting Maya to see if that solves the issue.

 

If that doesn't work you may need to update your graphics card driver to a stable/certified version that is recommended for Maya.
