Is anyone else experiencing graphics problems?

Are the graphics in here going nuts all over your pages, or do I need a new graphics card?

The grahics from the advertisements are either scattering or expanding all over the page, sometimes actually blocking out the clickible buttons or expanding on the page to double or triple size and blocking the text.

The only thing weird I've been seeing here only happens sometimes. It's the posts taking up the whole page. No column on the right with "Latest Forum Topics", etc.

sounds like you've got a windows driver issue, if your os is windows, that is.


macintrash has other issues with display, usually display memory.

I see you have the mountain man image down pat. I like the beard. You must have been growing it for a while.

Yes I am using Windows. I have tried downloading an updated version of Windows 7 hoping it will fix it, but no such luck. I have also tried to locate an updated graphics driver from Dell but their web site is pure hell to negotiate, and I am not a novice. Getting drivers from Dell is like getting stuck in a voicemail loop. You go round and round but never quite get to the place you need to be, in this case graphics card driver updates. Sometimes I just want to

I'm seeing the same thing when I log on from my Android phone. There's nothing more annoying than a Flash-generated pop-up ad on a cell phone browser.

On my laptop, I use Firefox with Adblock Plus like some of the others, so no problems on that one.
