In PS-CS6, for some reason I'm not able to manipulate the rotation tool anymore. It was working perfectly before. now it gives me an error message: "Could not complete request because it only works with OpenGL enabled Windows." How can I solve my issue? I really need help. this is causing me trouble with my work at school.

Well, what about OpenGL on your machine?
What is your Graphics Display Card and is its driver up to date?

You need to fix your system so you can use the GPU.

With the GPU disabled, you will not be able to use GPU features like view rotation, lens blurs, the various HUDs, etc.
