I think you need a different video card driver - try ATI's latest version.  A similar question was asked here: http://www.experts-exchange.com/Operating_Systems/Win2000/Q_20248682.html

Try uninstalling your video drivers, reboot and reinstall. That my fix your issue. Or you can always get the most updated driver from the manufacturs website.

Best luck,
Louis.
