1. Install the latest video driver for your machine.
2. Have your XP CD handy that came with the machine. Go to google.com and get IEFIX. This should push the machine closer to normal.
I got a used machine running Win XP. The monitor's flickering like crazy and I can't get it to stop - even lowering the resolution. Only refresh rate option is 60 hz.
But the main problem is when using Firefox, when I switch between windows - as many as 15 windows will replicate themselves - it's really weird. Then I can't view certain things using Firefox - for example my son can't watch certain cartoons. It worked once, but not again.
I can't download Internet Explorer or anything else. When I click on Download Now, it doesn't do anything.
