Pictures & Formatting not coming up

By Orlff ·
I am working in Windows XP and MSN on a Presario 2100 laptop. When I log in on line the page does not display the formatting correctly and usually shows pictures as a white box with a red x. If I right click on the x the pictures will show and if I refresh the page the formatting will come up correctly. This happens no matter where I browse. I am also getting runtime errors asking if I want to debug.

I have spent numerous hours with compaq and MSN to no avail. Does anyone have any ideas.

we could duplicate those numerous hours. since you don't mention what you have tried. a few suggestions:
try ie repair - Start/Control Panel/Add remove software/ms internet explorer/repair
turn off script debugging in IE. Tools/Intenet Options/Advanced.
download latest service packs for xp and ie. also critical updates . if still no joy, take a look at non-critical updates and get the ones that look related to browser. it worked for me. good luck.

Here's an article from MS
Pictures Are Not Displayed on Web Sites in Internet Explorer 283807

As far as the debug problem goes, go to Tools>Internet Options and click on the Advanced tab.
Under Browsing put a check in "Disable script debugging"

I had to reinstall everything because nothing has worked.

go to windowsupdate.microsoft.com and download the service pack for IE, after that is done then go back and grab the java runtime environment patch. Other installs should include the .NET framework

The .NET framework is available for download from Microsoft. Most often this can be done using http://windowsupdate.microsoft.com ...

However, it is unlikely that not having the .NET framework would be causing problems. You need to check in your Internet Settings and check both your Security Settings and you Advanced Settings for anything that might be blocking pictures and formatting.
