Popups go black until mouseover

Whenever I right click or open any menu this happens.If i mouse over them, they go back to normal except for the seperators which stay black. Any ideas?

Does your task bar normally look like that with the dark icons?

Did this just start happening?

You may have a graphics driver problem. Have you updated your graphics drivers recently? I just saw that you have a laptop. Did you update the graphics drivers from a source other than HP?
