On my dell laptop using Windows 7 64bit the Lightroom 5.7 update the crop does not work. When I try to crop from right to left the photo magnifies and I can't drag to crop photo.

From your description it sounds like the crop tool isn't enabled, because when the crop tool isn't enabled the cursor is a zoom-in magnifying glass or a drag-pan hand depending on the zoom level.

The crop tool is the dashed-line rectangle at the left of the row of tools at the top of the righthand panel in Develop, just under the histogram.
