Imported Images are spliced/cut

I have a client whos computer seems to be cutting images (see example). It appears that it is totally random when the pictures get spliced or cut and even sometimes the contrast on half of the picture gets turned way up. The pictures on the camera look just fine and when imported using another machine import perfectly. She has brought her SD card into Walgreens and had them put the pictures to a CD and they are also just fine until they are imported into her computer. I've done some searching on the web and found that many people are having this issue but couldn't find a resolution to this annoyance.

I've included two pictures where the splicing has occurred.

i would try updating chipset drivers first
then - depending on what connection is used, update those drivers too
you can also run sfc /scannow  from the run box - or a repair install

oh yes - and test thebasics first : ram and disk
download ubcd, run memtest86+ and the disk test needed; to be sure about the basics !!

Reinstalled Graphics card driver,
also reset settings to defualt,
if this doesn't fix,
 get the msinfo of the machine and copy paste it here.

like make model CPU, RAM, Graphics card etc.

Does this happen in more than one program?  What program(s) do they use to view their pictures?  I don't know what this kind of setting would be called offhand or who would want to do it on purpose, but it looks kind of like a freeze pane in excel.

Chipset drivers appear to have corrected the problem. I used her SD card and transferred all the pictures to the computer. I told her to take the computer home and give it another shot with all of her peripherals plugged into the computer and see if it does it. Ill accept a solution if i dont hear back from her for a while. She will be working tonight to transfer all of the pictures back onto the computer again.
