With Zorin OS 8 the Video Card must be missing a driver. Solarization is present

We just got rid of XP in a HP Pavilion a210n Desktop Computer. Yesterday we put in some Zorin Updates.

When we now go on the Web to CNN or AOL or other sites the photographs in the webpages are badly solarized and the text is unreadable.

Initially when we first loaded the new Zorin OS 8 it worked correctly!

What is happening? It is missing a video driver or did the present driver get corrupted?

Should we re-install the Zorin Software again?

how did you install zorin? is it the sole OS (operating system) on your computer now?
is the system working otherwise, or does this occur only inside the web browser?
which web browser are you using?

please supply us with one or several screenshot(s) of the problem(s).

enter these commands: "lspci", "lsmod", into a terminal.
copy-paste their output here (and use code tags: go advanced -> #).
