    i never got that deal at all, but i do get the banner ads placed in the middle of threads and stuff. 1/2 a post will be embedded in another post and so on.

    if i highlight it all it fixes it oddly enough lol

    That's truly the video card freaking the fvck out you should be running a 1gb video card. Based on the computer you had when you installed Windows 7 you should get a ddr 3 video card. Your video card is fine but is maxing out when you more than 2 windows open at one time. Whats going on it the card is having to split the images up and forgets were each image needs to go.

    Wow, Scotty thats messed up. I don't really subscribe to the throw away buy new approach. I do see the letters AOL on a toolbar and IMO thats never good. To me your screen grab looks like something that might happen if things get way out of date. Unless your box did this the whole time. I wouldn't toss it before cleanup (software and hardware), bringing all software and drivers up to current versions, scanning for bad things and treating them, then straightening out the registry. Maybe check your adblock settings too. Also if your HDD with the OS is over 60% full, try to whittle that down if theres junk. I use absolute garbage to access this and any other site and really have no troubles. IMO, the blank area of your screenshot makes me think Abobe reader or flash player wants to update. Maintainence sux but its easy. JMHO.

    The most dread thing about that (aside from price of course) is the looking at and deciding part. Desktops ain't the thang no more, mainstream-wise. Internet hogs are cheap but yeah anything with guts (plenty RAM and vid mem) is gonna cost. Let me know if you shop up a winner.

    That's some weird jazz going on there, never had any issues on my laptop. Firefox or Chrome.

    Somedays I want a different laptop for something new, but nothing really excites me besides the new Surface Book - but that's way too expensive for me, lol. I should get a smartphone first...

    I'm better off getting an SSD two 8GB RAM sticks and calling it a day. The only thing that really bothers me is the crappy TN panel...., but that was the norm even on $1k laptops three years ago like mine, even today you have to spend decent coin to not get a TN panel, or a crappy touchscreen.

    Nice to see some computer nerds here, lol.

    That's probably good for what you seem to do; no gaming, surfing, ect.

    seem the ones with a fan work better, but the cost goes up. i could always add one i suppose. just a little one to blow on it.

    Want to hear something funny the fan doesnt do much as far as cooling the video card board. It's there if you try and max it out. Unless your running games on your computer you don't need anything past web video card and that's really pushing it
