i have also noticed that if the loading screen for windows 7 or like the bios screen when u first turn on your computer, if they are all messed up looking, then the desktop when it loads will be fine and working correctly, but if those starter screens are normal, then when the desktop screen loads up it looks like the pictures above.

I would look at getting the drivers updated. Might want to look at firmware, too.

Don't double post. Use the edit button.

You could try the manufacturers site for a better driver or maybe they have a work-around solution for the problem.

this is what happens when you buy used

Windows does not have a "download driver solution pack". Just go to the manufacturer. There should be drivers/firmware there.
