trouble running samples (web controls don't work right)

Hello, everybody. I am having trouble running some of the VS.NET samples, specifically the CarSelector web app, which is very simple. The symptom is that the web controls (drop down listboxes and such) do not render correctly. They're almost invisible, and the others don't work at all, but just show their caption text. Not what should happen

This strange behavior is happening on my new laptop, which came with XP Home, but I immediately upgraded it to XP Pro. I installed VS.NET to the max, and IIS is running. I know this because I use the IIS snap-in from the Control Panel | Administration Tools and it shows all my virtual directories for projects I have created and run in VS.NET. The HTML controls seem to work OK, but the minute I attempt to add a web control to an ASP form, the control always renders invisible, showing at most the caption label if it has one. Buttons are totally invisible

Any ideas? I must add that my other computer (which is also running XP Pro and VS.NET with the latest service packs, etc. just like my laptop) has no trouble running the sample or any of my web control apps. But it used to. Now it works, though, and I have no idea why

Surely someone out there has heard of this

Much thanks to any help or suggestions of things to check or try

The samples installed and built correctly. They just don't run correctly
