When I log on to Prodigy,or access other wen pages, the graphics look like broken pixels with different colors. What could the matter be?

What are your video settings? Sounds like 16 color. Right click on an empty space on the desktop and click Properties. Click the Settings tab and look for a drop down bar that says 16 color or 256 color. Set it to a higher color pallette. 256 or better should clean up your graphics. If you have 32 bit true color listed, it will give you the best graphics, but will reduce performance, and often cause Illegal Operation Errors while using IE. I've had to reduce mine to 24 bit True Color for that reason.

If you don't have anything higher than 16 or 256 colors listed, install newer video drivers. Windrivers (http://www.windrivers.com) and WinFiles (http://www.winfiles.com) are about the best driver sites around.
