Attached is how my Central Administration site is showing up.  Does anyone know why this is happening or where to look for why it is?

Thanks

what browser is this, and have you tried it on more than one computer?

That is FireFox but it is the same on IE.

Can you please post your CSS and perhaps, your HTML code? Odds are, your CSS and HTML are referencing different items.

I have not touched any of those files at all. This is how the site is being rendered right after running the setup wizard.

Are you sure your CSS is uploaded? Sometimes, when you use wizards, you file locations may get messed up. Take a look at your HTML code for your page if you will, and look for a line in the head (<head>) like this:
<link href="special.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">

Then, tell me where the CSS is in your site; i.e. is it in a folder called CSS?

have you tried accessing Central Admin from another computer?  it's possible that the security settings (or something similar) are preventing the page from rendering correctly.

You can just post up the CSS and HTML code if you want and we'll see why it's not showing up.

i am still unclear about whether or not you tried to access Central Admin from another computer...  which should have been a littler easier than re-installing Sharepoint.  my guess is that the particular computer has some kind of internet protection settings that are preventing the page from loading correctly.  this could be confirmed by bringing up Central Admin from another computer.  even though Central Admin/Sharepoint is installed on 1 computer, you can access it from any computer on the network (assuming you are supplying the correct credentials for authentication).

EMB01:  sharepoint isn't like custom made web sites.  if the page isn't rendering correctly, it isn't going to be the CSS or HTML code itself.

Thanks, I am unfamiliar with SharePoint. But, the CSS/ HTML should still be posted anyway, right?

I am sorry I did not post up the html but I have reinstalled and now it is displaying properly.  If it does it again I will certainly post up the HTML so we all can learn something about this.  
I appreciate the help.
