Windows 7: Colors missing in many places

Colors missing in many places

First noticed this while composing msgs in Gmail. "Rich text" feature used to let me, on my OLD Dell, let me choose to highlight sections of text in various colors. Now, on my new 2-week-old NEW Dell, while the little boxes that are _supposed_ to show me the various colors to choose from do appear, they are just that: little black-outlined boxes with nothing in them. Passing a cursor across a box will bring up text saying what color it is, but the color itself is missing: the entire message window is all black-and-white.

Similarly, on many web sites I'm used to visiting, items like "click here" no longer show up.

IE8 background colors missing on Print Preview
With Windows 7, I see that Internet Explorer 8 is included. On some web-pages I go to, when I perform a print preview, the background colors are missing. Does anyone else notice this? ...or is this a known bug? Thanks.
