Have a user who uses Excel 2007.  Intermittently after having a spreadsheet open and minimized for a while when he maximizes it the cells are gone or appear black.  If he scrolls up and down the cells and data re-appears.
Any ideas?

This seems like a legacy issue when Office 2k7 was first released and upgrades from 2003 were occurring. Ensure printers have the latest drivers (sounds crazy, I know), ensure the Office version is upgraded to SP2, and lastly make sure the display adapter drivers are current.
