Window 7 & Yahoo Blog

by FrankH2010 / January 27, 2010 4:40 PM PST

I bought a new Acer Aspire 5738G with Windows 7.0 Home Edition.
I face the problem, that the content of my Yahoo-Blog is not being
displayed properly. I checked all computer settings, but nothing seems to be wrong with the settings.

The Yahoo-Blog works fine when I use a computer with Windows XP.

Is someone aware of problems between Windows 7.0 and the Yahoo-Blog.

It would be great if someone could help me.

Well, let's assume you use a browser to have a look at your blog. Then, what you see, depends on the browser more than on the underlying OS.

- What's your browser at the XP-computer you're referring to (say: Firefox 3.6)?
- What's your browser at the Windows 7 computer (say: IE8)?

- Now try the same browser with the same settings (note the IE7 compatibility mode in IE8!) on the 2 computers.
- Still different? Then try again after setting the screen resolution on both PC's to be the same (say: 800 x 600, 1024 x 768).
- Still different? Then try it without any browser add-ons that might interfere.
- Still different (with same browser, same browser settings, no add-ons, same video settings?). Then please post details (including link to blog, settings of browser and video, and pictures of how it looks and what's wrong with it).

Just seconding that it sounds like it is a browser issue and not a Windows 7 problem...

Thanks "Windows Outreach Team",

The browser I use is IE8.0 which is also a Microsoft product.

Any idea, what the problem can be?

Frank
