Well, starting with basics, have you used Ctrl + L to refresh the 
display?  Frame is notorious for being in the dark ages and not doing a 
screen refresh automatically.

You could also check the Run-Around properties of various objects in the 
frames (although that affects text more than graphics), because anything 
other than Don't Run Around can cause bizarre behaviour of nearby objects.

A third possibility is that you have turned off graphics display with an 
inadvertent keyboard shortcut.  Check View > Options > Graphics and make 
sure it's selected.
