Go HERE and get Adobe Flash Player version 10.0.32.18
Make sure to uncheck the box for McAfee Virus protection. You don't need that headache.

Still no change. Here's what it says when I push "Information" on the monitor settings button:

H Frequency: 48.3 kHz
V Frequency: 60.4 Hz
Pixel Clock: 64 MHz
Resolution: 1024 x 768

Could it be colour temperature? -

Download F.lux in my signature.

See if that does anything.

Kind of a neat little program there Random
I'm not sure if that will help in this case though.
The problem seems to be more of the background on web pages that the OP is having a issue with.

Ok this is what I'm seeing for your driver
Driver Name: nv4_disp.dll
Driver Version: 6.14.0010.8133 (English)


The newest one on Nvidia's site is:
Version:

190.62 WHQL
Release Date:

2009.08.21
Operating System:

Windows XP
Language:

English (U.S.)
File Size:

78.5 MB


I'm checking to make sure this will work correctly with your system .
Can you tell me if your video is built onboard or is it a addon card?

Not sure which. We bought the computer at Best Buy 2 1/2 years ago. Anything I can look at to help determine which?

Looking at your computer's specifications, an onboard video card will usually say "integrated" in it's name.

E.g. "nVidia Integrated Graphics Accelerator"

Rather than "nVidia Geforce 8400M GT GPU"

Right click on the Desktop where there are no icons
Click on Properties
Now click on Settings
It should tell you what your video card is.
