See what happens when you try low level graphics like the following:

In[1]:=  Show[ Graphics[ {  Line[{{-1,1},{1,-1}}], Line[{{-1,-1},{1,1}}]  } 

This should draw an "X" with slolid Lines.

Also, see what happens when you print the above graphic.
After you do that call Wolfram Research tech suppport.
If your hardware is broken they might help you determine that it is.
