    Hey,
    Well to begin I have no idea where to put this, it can be multiple sources where this problem occurs, not sure if its the graphics card, the operating system, or the harddrive.

    My problem is that 88x31 images do not show up on my computer. It doesn't sound like a big problem though it is really getting me annoyed since I cant see my affiliates buttons on my site, as well I cant see mine on theirs, and not only that its fun checking out other sites when your board and I cant click on buttons 2 get there.

    Now only 88x31 images do not show on a WEBPAGE. It will show if there saved on my HD, or if I got directly to the image on the web (example: www.site.com/image.gif)

    I formatted last night to fix this problem, and once I finshed formatting it worked fine. I seen the 88x31 images on websites, so just before I went 2 sleep I checked to see if it worked, it did.

    I left my computer running to re-upload big php scripts and .psd files to my site.

    I come back this morning to check to see if the 88x31 images show, and they dont :mad:

    I dont know what's going on here, though it's really annoying.


    No body i've talked to has any idea why it is doing this, Im not sure if it is Internet explorer, Windows, Graphics card or what.

    I dont think it is internet explorer becuase I tried netscape and it does not appear ither

    I dont think it is my graphics card becuase I never had this problem before and my graphics card has been installed on my computer for over 6 months and nothing like this happend.

    I dont think it is windows becuase I had this computer well over a year and did not notice any problems before like this.

    So that leaves my harddrive suspision, which I feel is the most logical problem though it has almost nothing to do with the internet that comes to my mind.

    I think it is the harddrive becuase I had to bring it in for the Master Boot Record to be re-written, since somehow the dos partition of the HD was ereased.

    If anyone could help it would be EXTREMELY apperciated.
    Thanks for your time,

    If I am reading this correctly and I hope I am ...

    You have a website and the images that are 88x32 dont show up. Now can you send a link for us to see if they show up for us... plus it sounds like it could be a path problem. I dont think its a HD or graphics card issue.

    Let us look at the link and we should be able to tell almost immediately

    the sites that I used 2 beable 2 see are:



    www.techgear007.net (at the bottom, there should be 14 buttons, and 2 others on the right hand side)

    www.nuke-x.com (should be one on the left hand side)



    EDIT: Sorry I typed the 1st url wrong, I fixed it now. Note, those are just sites I give as an example, every webpage does not show 88x31 buttons that I visisted.

    Well the first site teachgear007.net doesnt resolve... I get a 404 error

    The nuke-x.com works fine. I dont see any missing images at all. It might an issue with your cache... clear it all out and try again.

    Ye those are the ones that are there :'(, well at least they are there, though I wish I could see them. Its wearid though how right after I formatted they shown up, though after I left my comp over night I come back and they dissipear. Im going to restore back to the orginal and see what goes on, and install my software again, and keep checking to see if that does it.

    If no software is the problem, not the cashe or the browser, and its most likey not the HD, it would have to be the OS right?

    Also everything shows up for Opera too.... No problems

    The only think I can think off the top of my head is that are you running any type of firewall?? If this is happening in all browsers that the only thing I can think of. For now.

    Oh, I was gonna ask. Is there a way to change some settings in Norton Personal Firewall for it 2 allow 88x31 images?

    Something must be set in there not to allow *gifs or something... weird let me tell. I dont run Nortons Personal Firewall. I run Sygate so I have no idea where the setting or settings might be.

    my NPF shows them fine, I will dig around though

    do you have the ad blocking turned on??

    88x31 is a standard banner ad image size so it could be blocking them just on that

    Yeah, Personal Firewall does block those images as advertisements. Beyond that, it could have to do with the sending of referrer information... there is an article on Symantec's website on how to allow NPF to pass referrer info from specified sites.
