Word 2003 Unable to see inserted pictures

I have a client that is using Word 2003 when you insert a picture from a file on her PC you get a rectangle box where the picture should be but you can't see the picture. Now if you print the page the picture shows up on paper. I found an article to check under Word tools/options/view and make sure the draw option is checked and it is but still no picture. Any help in this matter would be appreciated.

Within the Tools | Options, View dialog, make sure the "Picture placeholders" checkbox is turned off. If it is on, Word just displays a rectangle to speed up screen display.
Excellent!  Thanks very much.  I'm so pleased it worked for you.
