im having problems with graphics on an old pc athlon xp 1ghz 256mb ram 40gb hard drive nvidia tnt 32mb graphics card. the problem is in windows and web pages buttons are not highlighted and there is no colour to them. eg on the pca site where it says click here to publish thread thats all there is no button or background colour just black writting on a white background and no background behind the threads or coloured bar across the top.same in add remove programs no buttons down side just writing. anyone any ideas operating system windows 2000. p.s. i thought it was the graphics card so i changed it but no joy. thanks darren
