I'd suggest that you grab and install updated display drivers for your video card - sounds like there could be something screwy there.

First of all, do you know what kind of video card your computer has?
ie. Nvidia Geforce, 3dfx Voodoo, ATI Radeon, etc.

If so, go to the manufacturers web site and search for drivers for your particular card.

If not, go to the display properties window (right click a blank area of your desktop, choose properties from the pop-up menu), click the settings tab, then the Advanced... button.
Select the Adapter tab on the next window, hit the Change... button, then Next >.
Make sure Search for a better driver is selected & hit Next >.
Pop the CD that came with your PC, or your Windows CD in (the CD that came with your PC is the better one), make sure there is a tick by CD-ROM drive and click Next >.
Hopefully, the next screen should display the correct driver for your PC, click Next > , follow the on screen instructions and cross your fingers. :)
