Word problem - displaying pictures intermittently

The copy of Word I use at work has a very annoying problem - if a 
document has pictures of any sort they display sporadically. Sometimes
the picture can be made to appear by scrolling down and up again but 
this doesn't work reliably. Sometimes the pictures display without a 
problem and on other occasions they never display. This applies to all
sorts of pictures - .GIF, .JPG, embedded Visio drawings, even Word 
pictures. As the documents I work on usually have a number of pictures
it is very annoying and lowers productivity.

The PC is running Windows XP at SP2. Word is version 2002 at SP3. The 
PC is a reasonably modern small form factor HP with 512 MB Ram.

Word is set up to display paragraph marks and tabs only (i.e. not all 
hidden items)

As it's a work PC, there is no option to upgrade to Vista, Word 2007 
or Open Office until the company as a whole upgrades.

I've contacted our Hell Desk and they admit they've seen the problem 
before but cannot remember the solution.

So ... have the great minds and experience of these NGs got any
