You're missing a web.config in that folder most likely.

thanks for response... web.config file is already in the media folder

ok then. Next step would be to check the requests in your browser's dev tools. Look for the status code in the response.

hi again bert how are you? your advises are very helpful to me...i am going to ask one more question...i build a website that was running perfactly in Firfox and Crome but it is giving a problem in IE7 that i used in my machine. i think IE7 not supporting the stylesheet yet i don't know why and the localhost is not loading images too. have you any suggestion.

Well, that's not an Orchard question. Seems like a pure CSS question. Also, it's amazingly vague.

hi again bert, is there a way to remove title and publish date currently showing on the page because i don't want these any more.

You can hide the shapes in

Use the Shape Tracing module to find out the name of the shape you want to hide.

Then in

<Place Shape_Name="-"/>
