Ok we few quick things. One can you please fill out your system spec in your userCP this will help us know what hardware you are using.
Next is this 32bit or 64bit Windows 7?
Is this an install from a DVD or usb drive?
Is this the RC of windows seven or another build?

Probably a video driver reboot in safe mode (F8) and see if it changes. If yes download your video driver and install
