Yes I have seen this too. I fixed it be resetting System preferences by going to the folder /YourHardDrive/Users/YourUserName/Library/Preferences/ and dragging the file com.apple.systempreferences.plist to the trash. I then restarted.

The only drawback was I had to reset some System Preferences like Date & Time and Security after deleting that file. Good Luck.

One more thing. Try to Reset your Pram to see if that helps.
