I am running Windows XP on a slightly aged Dell Laptop -- and whether I'm in IE, Firefox or using AIM, sometimes other programs -- 90 percent of images are completely absent from any website and sometimes the GUI of a program. I thought it might be a graphics card issue, but some images load. It's been driving me insane, because it just happened one day, and I can't specifically remember what, if anything I even did. No settings anywhere in the computer indicate that this is how things should be.... help!!!
