"Graphics or Webpages Do Not Display Properly"
If pictures and/or colors are not displaying properly in your Web browser, it may be related to the Display Adapter. NetZero recommends the use of an SVGA monitor at 800x600 screen resolution. Your Display Adapter should support at least 256 colors.
Before trying anything else, verify that problem is not due to losing your connection to the Internet. If you lose your connection, graphics may not have a chance to download to your browser.
