    Try using compatibility mode in IE. If that does not help then it is most likely a dell server issue. Try also cleaning out the IE history and junk files.

    Compatibility mode because some website has been designed to look better in old browser, so compatibility mode help to fix picture and text in wrong place and unreadable.
