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.

Downloading the latest driver from the AMD/ATI Web Site rectified the problem.
