Hello sivaramakrishnan_k,

I have had this same issue before and it ended up being video card related.  First, to see if it is a video issue, turn down the hardware acceleration.

To do this, right click an empty area of the desktop, click properties.
Then click the Settings tab.
Then click the Advanced button.
Then click the Troubleshooting tab.
Then turn the hardware acceleration down to None.
Apply and ok out of everything and reboot the machine.

Test to see if the issue is still present, if so, it's not likely a video issue.
If it resolves the issue, update the video card drivers to the most recent for your Operating System (Win2k).  Once the drivers are updated, make sure the hardware acceleration is back up to "Full".  If that doesn't work, replace the video card.

Hope this helps.
