What I See vs. What You See

So, I have had this problem with my computer since we bought it. It may seem like a little problem, but it can be very frustrating at times. It was purchased through the company that Ryan used to work for in California, and originally it wasn't "my" computer. It was for him to do some work for this company from Oregon, while they looked for someone to replace him. Well, that work is over and Ryan has a laptop now from his new work so this computer has been passed on to me. I remember when we bought this computer, the IT lady told Ryan that if we were going to use it on the internet, it wouldn't work quite right because it would need a different graphics card. Well, I've lived with it for about 2 years now. Most of the time, it's ok. But sometimes depending on what website I go to, I have to hunt around for buttons because I can't see them. (does that make sense?) It's like a layer is missing or something.
Ryan has had multiple people tell him that it must be some kind of setting in the computer, but we have exhausted our resources. And I can't find a new graphics card for it
So, I've been having some issues with my blog. I have to tweak and tweak and tweak to make it look right. Well come to find out, I'm tweaking for nothing. I checked my blog from my mom's computer, and was horrified to find vast spacing between pictures and words. I can't even see the background color on my computer.
So here are a couple examples:
Notice the lack of color!!!
...and here, on mine, no spaces. But on yours, this is how it looks! (granted, it took me forever to get it to look like this on my computer.)

So, I'm not going to tweak it now.
Even though, heavens, I know that it's going to look awful to me.

I'm going to let you be my eyes.
How does it look with zero tweaking.

Don't you think I need a new computer. Tell Ryan, because he reads this blog!!!


*can't you see me batting my eyelashes?*

Maybe my laptop is messed up, too. I haven't seen any of the spacing issues or color problems that others have seen, but when I was with you this weekend and we looked on Barb's computer, we saw the spacing. My computer doesn't show me any problems on your blog. Keep up the great blogs - even if they are frustrating to post! LOL!

Ryan can't read this blog anymore, he's too busy working two jobs to keep up with the demands of his lovely bride!
