B key select window missing

I seem to be having trouble with the b key command. When I hit the b key, I can not see the select box on the screen. I can still select but no box. The same goes for typing the b key twice for the brush. I don’t have a problem on my desktop, but my laptop doesn’t show the box. Do I have to adjust something in user preferences? Anyone have the same problem?

Most probably a graphics card / driver issue. Tr updatng your driver. If that doesn’t work, you’ll probably have to live with it until the next version of blender comes out later this year.
