Video Card problem? Using Puppy, TinyCoreLinux.

Multiple family members, friends, and myself have computers that are several years old or more. These have 128-512 MB RAM. Puppy, TincyCore, and other small distros run well.

Major problem: Images do not render properly. TinyCore does not have the problem with newer computers. (I have not tried the other ones on new computers).

-photos are discolored
-text is different colors

See attached image.

I would appreciate advice on what is causing this and what to do about it. I am wondering if it is a video card driver issue.
