Not able to see graphics ....

... and even some text on web pages. I have Win XP Pro on my laptop, which was just reinstalled. Is there a setting I mixed up or changed to get here? I have tried looking at settings and etc to no avail.

Any input is greatly appreciated. I cannot see the graphics on the outside of the center of this web site and much of the text which are links, I cannot see. Same happens when I access web sites such as yahoo etc.

Thanks for your input and assistance.

Although you are using Mozilla and you are having the problem when using that browser, do you also have the problem when using Internet Explorer?

In the meantime, make sure to install BOTH the newest Java and the newest Windows XP Script Engine from the link below:

Click on the link to Sun's Java below, then click on the "Download Windows J2SE JRE" download link that is in the "J2SE v 1.4.2_07 JRE includes the JVM technology" section. Download the file to your desktop, scan it with your antivirus (just to be sure it's clean), then shut down all background programs, including your antivirus, then run the installer.

AFter that, download and install the updated Script engine from the appropriate link below:

Windows Script 5.6 for Windows 2000 and XP

At the link above, although it appears like you must "validate" your Windows version, it's not a requirement. At the next page, you can still obtain the download by clicking on the "NO" option.

After everything is installed, then open the Control Panel, double click on the "Internet Options" icon, then click on the "Advanced" tab. When that loads, scroll down to the "Java(Sun)" section and make sure there is a CHECK mark next to: "Use Java,....". Click on Apply, then Ok.

Next, try installing the Shockwave and Flash Player plugins for Mozilla which can be downloaded from the links below:

Macromedia Flash Player Download Center

Shockwave Player Download Center

Hope this helps.
