    I have a Dell desktop with Windows XP with Word 2002 running on it running
    for three years already. Word worked fine before, but it has problem now on
    pasting picures. I cannot see any pasted picture from the word file. After
    I paste a picture, nothing is visible, and if I highlight the position where
    I just pasted the picture in the word file, all I can see is a very tiny
    "pasted" fram with nothing in it! And there is nothing visible either in the
    "print preview" page. Pictures in previously saved files displayed just fine.
    I have tried running the Office repair, but that didn't make any difference.
    I need to be able to paste screen shots into Word for documentation and
    troubleshooting. How do I fix this? Please help!

  2. A few things to try:
    1. In Word, if you're working in Normal view, switch to Print
    Layout view (View | Print Layout), because objects that are
    formatted as "float over text" (Word 97) or as something other
    than "inline with text" (Word 2002 and 2003) are not visible in
    Normal view.
    2. In Word, click on Tools | Options | View tab | check the
    "Drawings" box and uncheck the "Picture placeholders" box | Print
    tab | check the "Drawing objects" box | OK.
    3. If neither of the previous suggestions fixes the problem,
    then try reducing the hardware acceleration setting in Start |
    Control Panel | Display | Advanced | Troubleshooting. If this
    fixes the problem, then you might want to check the website of
    the manufacturer of your video card/graphics adapter to see if
    there is an updated driver available.

    Thank you for the help information! I tried your suggestion 1 and 2 but the
    result is still the same. I wanted to try the third one, but it's strage
    that in my PControl Panel|Display, there is no Advanced page/tab hence the
    Troubleshooting page/tab either. Why is this?
    regarding the driver update, just wanted to know why the word was ok for
    pasted picture but not ok now? Pictures in previous saved files are
    displayed just fine and no any problem. BUt I tried to paste picture again
    into the previously saved files, it doean't work either. Is this really the
    video card/graphics adaptor driver problem? And how should I find out who is
    the manufacturer of the card? Thanks!

  4. Sorry, I should have said Start | Control Panel | Display |
    Settings | Advanced | Troubleshooting.

    I have the same problem. go to format picture, choose 3-D format, then at "Contour", choose color as white, and size 1pt, all set.
