I have a very old computer that still has win 2000 on it... I know pretty lame but I only use it for ps so its fine for me. Everything else I need to do including internet I use with my phone. However my pictures in ps seem to almost be slanted or crooked on the screen. It very well could be my eyes playing tricks on me or it could be the old computer but I thought maybe it had something to do witth the computers resolution. Just not sure how to go about fixing it so the images don't look crooked anymore. Its a tad annoying cause it plays tricks on my eyes and I don't really ever know what the final outcome will look like....

If ne one knows a solution that could share that'd be much appreciated. If not no big deal.... ill live... thanks!

If not the monitor, it's probably the videocard aging.
Have you tried to look up your videocard's model and see if there are any drivers available to update?

Older videocards tend to get bad results sometimes. The problem is that your videocard is most likely an older AGP card, instead of the newer PCIxpress.
Harder to get, in case of replacement.
