    Hello, labelkill

    The only issues I can notice are that the speaker volume on your status bar is missing and that your dock has been made very, very small. I don't know how to fix the volume icon issue, but the dock can be brought back to size by clicking on the little driver and dragging up.

    Is there something I'm missing?

    Regards
    Raptor

    P.S.: the divider is between the system preferences icon and the downloads folder icon.

    Are you referring to the size of the dock (and the app icons). If that's it, my advice is to go into setting, click on Dock and re-size it.

    On that pic, I would think the pixelated-ness would be tumblr not having a high res backround graphic.. Nothing you can do I change that.

    You may need to take an actual photo of the screen. If it's a problem with the screen itself then it won't show up in a screenshot.

    Graphic artifacts due to a faulty GPU do not show up in screen shots. If you look at your screenshots on another computer you'll see that nothing shows.

    Graphic artifacts are usually cause by either a bad LCD cable or a dying GPU.
