One thing you should try is updating Java. You're running a rather old
verison. The current version is 1.6.0_21. (This might not have anything
to do with your problem, but there have been a lot of bugfixes since
the version you're running.)

The second thing to check is whether you're getting anything in the
errorLog. Look under the Help menu in the Module Manager for that.
