One potential cause we've discovered in-house of a problem like this is
when you're sharing your desktop with NetMeeting and you're running your
display set to 16-bit color depth. An easy workaround is to increase your
color depth to 24 or 32-bit. The problem could conceivably also occur
under certain multiple monitor configurations, as well, although it
wouldn't be very likely. We have, of course, corrected the problem for
In any case, whether or not you are running NetMeeting or multiple
monitors, I think changing your color depth and restarting Mathematica
would be a good first thing to try. Beyond that, it might be useful to
know if anything has recently changed with your video hardware, drivers,
or settings. Let me know how it goes.
