Graphics not showing in IE8, Windows 7.

I just installed a laptop and a desktop for a client both have Windows 7.  The desktop has no problems, however the laptop does not show all pictures.  I have checked the Tools and Advanced Options and Pictures are checked to be shown.  For example from Yahoo's main page , Yahoo Sites the text is shown but the none of the icons are shown.  Under the Today section the picture IS displayed correctly.  If I goto Advance Options and remove the check box to show pictures, the picture is not shown (in other words this works as it is supposed to).  Also all the boxes around each section are dark black where on the desktop they are a light grey.  Any suggestions?
