Default Menu display issues - Windows XP

Hello All,
I am having a bit of an issue and I am trying to avoid a simple re-image of the machine. It involves a band new HP 7800 slim, running Windows XP.

When I click on any menu, including opening the right click menu anywhere, the options of the menu do not show up until you mouse over them. All I get when I click on a menu (like file, edit, ect) is a shadowed outline of it, until I start mouse overing them, then they display normally one at a time.

Have any of you seen this before and/or have a fix for it? I'm stumped!

Thank you all.

Edit: I have tried all adjustments with the fx driver... Including transparency and a few others... No luck! Thanks again.

This would be due more to the theme you are using than anything. Are you using the default XP theme or something else?
