One of the reason is because of improper boundary conditions and sometimes if you are starting the solution again it will not come.

Check your boundary conditions again.

It is a problem of your graphic card. I had the same problem with my laptop. Ive got a ATI RADEON 9600 and I had to do the following:

If you are using Windows, try to decrease the hardware grafic acceleration of the sistem: Control Panel -> Display -> Settings -> Advanced -> Diagnostic -> Move the acceleration hardware cursor in the center of the graded scale.

NB: this is the english traduction of a Windows XP italian sistem, but it isn't too different from the other versions.
