Seeing Red! Hi Guys, I use Windows XP Home Version 2002 I experience visual interference on certain sites ie: Hostgator & (where I cannot see the products, except strangely for American Express?). They are just small solid red rectangles. The problem is one of solid Red blocks or panels blanking out certain page information. No virus or other invader is being picked up. Any ideas guys? Kindest regards Aled

Re: Seeing Red!

Open Control Panel and select "Display". Check on the "settings" tab what colour settings you have on for your monitor. Try putting this up to the highest quality and see if you get a change. try the others if not. Do you have your windows XP fully updated to Service Pack 2 and all the latest auxiliary updates? If not, do that (go to windows update from control panel). Are you using microsoft internet explorer as your browser? if so, and especially if the problem is a recent one, update internet explorer (latest version is 7.0.5730.11). to check this, open IE and select the help menu, select "about Internet Explorer" and it will tell you the version you are running. If none of the above helps, then open IE and select the tools menu, and select "internet options". Select the "advanced" tab. Check that "enable visual styles on buttons and controls in webpages" is on. check the section "multimedia" write down what you currently have (in case you need to change back), then change them all to on. Restart your computer after trying each thing. Hope this helps, please ask again if no joy

Ive upgraded my xp home edition sony vaio pcv-v1/G with windows vista home premium do i get it back to xp it wont let me load xp back onto it since i upgraded thanks

Did you reformat the entire hard drive when you installed Vista? If you formatted the recovery partition you won't be able to go back without a Xp installation disc.

To my knowledge you cannot upgrade from Windows XP directly to Windows 7. You will have to upgrade to Vista and then to 7. Also there are limitations as to which Windows 7 version (Home, Professional, Ultimate) you can upgrade to from certain Vista versions.

If you dont have any information / data on the PC that you mind loosing, i suggest a clean install of Windows 7 by booting up from the Windows 7 dvd and formating the HDD before the installation procedure.

Windows 7 has a host of built in drivers that will probably cover all of the devices that are present on your system. If not then you can always download the drivers from the manufacturers site for the items that fail to install automatically under 7.

Let me know how it goes.

I reinstalled windows xp on dell inspiron 6000 i caanot get updates etc because ie will flash on then off. i cannot install the drivers needed for the laptop can you help me please

If it is a fresh install of XP then the browser is an older version. Download and install the newest version of IE and try the updates again.

You can also get most of the drivers from the dell site, just look for the service tag on the bottom and enter it into the site to gain access to the drivers.
