    Hi there. I sure hope this is a dumb question so that it has an easy answer! My problem is that the backgrounds do not show up on myspace on my dell laptop , running windows xp.:confused: This is firewalled, but I have tried turning off the firewall, and still no luck.:mad: Works fine on my old desktop, which has windows ME. Any suggestions to fix appreciated!:eek:

    Need some clarification here. Are you talking about your desktop background or something actually on myspace.com?

    Thanks for replying! And sorry, I'll be more clear...mostly it's the backgrounds on myspace. The words and pictures are there, but the backgrounds don't show up.... just blank on laptop with XP but work fine on old desktop with ME.

    I'm not a member of myspace so I can't go into the site too far, but it appears they use a lot of Adobe Flash on their website. This is a browser plugin that is used to view moving images on different websites. If those are what you are talking about you can go to...
    http://www.adobe.com/products/flashplayer/ and download the flash plugin. If you are talking about not being able to see videos or other members pictures you will need to check with another member and see what player or format they are shown in and install that.
