I've seen this in a few cases:
1) Unsupported graphics card. See here for certified hardware:
2) Old/bad driver
3) If you have built-in Intel graphics on laptop, sometimes NX chooses to use this graphics chip instead of the certified card. If you have NVidia, try using the Nvidia control panel -> Manage 3D settings -> Program settings -> Select Siemens NX and "lock" it to the NVidia graphics card.
Hope this helps...
Production: NX10.0.3.5 MP5 + patch/TC11.2
Apparently I've turned into a gearhead
I think what you are seeing is the result of some of the Selection Preferences on a non-supported graphics card.
Experiment with turning off these Selection Preferences.
