I have a Toshiba Satelite 2410 laptop with 1 gb memory, NVidia GeForce4 420 graphics controller with 16mb of internal memory, running XP and IE7.

Some of the colors on some pages don't display. For example on www.dogpile.com, the blue wash background and the green background behind the animals in need counter are white (same as the rest of the page). The Dogpile logo, however is blue.

I just upgraded from 256K to 1 gb of memory - I was hoping that the upgraded memory might solve the problem, but no.

Any ideas? could there be some setting that was set when IE7 was installed with the 256k?

The easiest way to check is to use another browser: Firefox, Maxthon (IE substitute), Opera or Safari for Windows. I checked page with all of those including IE 8 (don't have 7) and page colors were all normal.

OK, I installed Firefox and the dogpile web page looks fine, as do some other pages that have seemed to lack color (and in some cases buttons).

Definitely looks like a problem with IE 7. The PDF showed that all add-ons are disabled. Does that include any Toolbars that may be installed, but hidden? Could be a security setting that has been turned on. These can be reset in Internet Options as a check. Especially any security software that ties in with IE.
