Any ideas? > 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 future versions. 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.
