    And are you using anything different on your laptop? Any different extensions installed? Is it IE or Firefox?
    Both IE and Firefox are the exact same releases. I am currently at work, so I can't check anything else until later tonight, but I'm going to do some more work with the Security settings to see if I can find a trigger somewhere.

    UPDATE - Still no go.

    Here are some screenshots, both of the IE Window and the Firefox Window. The actual Letsgokings.com site works just fine, just the /bbs section is whacked.




    One thing I did notice on both . . . there's a little letter "d" that loads in the very top left of the window. I can see this in the source code. (Which, BTW, loads in full, so I can see that the actual page is loading, just not being displayed completely/at all.)

    Things I have done:

    - Shutdown/Restarted
    - Power cycled DSL modem
    - Power cycled router
    - Cleared All Internet cache/cookies, etc.
    - Tried loading in Safe Mode (same result)
    - Uninstalled/Reinstalled IE7. (Quoting Tom Hanks in Apollo 13 "Let's hope we don't have to do that again!"
    - Manually turned off all security and virus programs, as well as as programs running in background.
    - Ran Scandisk
    - Ran CCleaner
    - Swore at the computer really loud.
    - Drank three Firestone Double Barrels, all with a perplexed look on my face, with my wife wondering if I was truly going crazy.

    I guess I have to rule out all connection issues via the modem/router, since I'm using the same damned connection on this laptop.

    Paying attention to the bottom status bar, the IE load goes so damn fast that I can't see anything. The last line in usually something regarding valuesky or focussky.

    The Firefox window seems to get a little farther, but then gets stuck at the same point, trying to "transfer data" from a various amount of sources, especially one called lapi.ebay.com and couple other ones with ebay in the name.

    I decided to flip through about 100 different bookmarks to check and see what other errors I could find. Every other site I went to worked just fine, including various install versions of vBulletin sites that I visit.

    Okay brainiacs . . . go to work!

    I have a similar problem here. Mine is mainly after I post a message and then I'm supposed to be forwarded back to the thread. What happens is, my screen turns white and it sits there trying to load but never does.

    Don't know what browser you're using. Have no problem with IE.

    Again, for anyone who just didn't bother reading the rest of the thread... 'cause you know, it's not like we wanted to answer the question until YOU got here...

    Go to your usercp (now called "Locker") and decrease the number of posts that are displayed per page. Instead of the default, lower it to something like 20. If that doesn't work, lower it again. If it still doesn't help, get back to us. You're special and we care about you.
