I've been having ungoing trouble with certain sites being too large for my screen, so large that some of the sites show just a handful of letters. Recently I switched to high speed and was unable to activate my account because the instructions were running together and I could not locate and click enter. I've also noticed that the backgrounds colors are a little bit funky. Do you know what this could be? Could this all be caused by a bad video card?

Thank you very much, and I look forward to hearing what you have to say.

I doubt this is the case, but give it a shot: perhaps change the view settings for webpages? If you are using Internet explorer, open up a webpage -> click on view in the top-bar menu -> text size and see what it is set on. I believe default is "medium."

I tested my system by changing it to "Largest" and a few webpages would act the way you are describing, while others would be fine.

Look in Internet Options>Accessability and see if the settings haven't changed. You can (I beleive) set them to default. If you set the font size to largest and choose ignore font sizes on web pages that can happen. :tazz:
