    So recently my computer has been doing weird crap where some images don't load properly, as in halfway down the picture, it is suddenly cut off and the bottom part looks all messed up. The other huge annoyance is that I can't seem to play any flash videos (youtube, break, or any other service). It will play through maybe 1/8th of the video and stop. I reformatted my hard drive and re-installed windows and it seemed fine for a week, and now it's doing that same crap over and over again. My first guess is that it might be the RAM... Here are my computer specs: Asus A8N-SLi Premium motherboard, 2gb (2 x 1gb) of OCZ Platinum ram, eVGA nVidia 7800 GT 256mb, AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+ Here's what something looks like: [​IMG]

    Does it do this for files that you have on your computer, or only stuff from online?

    If online only, which browser are you using?

    How about your video driver. Did you recently update which driver you were using?

    It only does it online but it does it for both IE 7 and Firefox 2. My video driver is the latest nvidia (non beta) one but it wasn't as recent as these problems are

    Check to see if you are suffering from severe packet loss with your internet connection. Your connection might be timing out when sending the pictures.

    click Start -> run and type in cmd
    then type in
    Code:
    ping yahoo.com -t
    Let that run for a while and when you want it to stop press ctrl+c. It will give you a result at the total packets sent and the total returned.

    Also check your speed and make sure its around where it should be:
