    This is such a common problem in Second Life that I ended up creating a collection of all the suggestions on how to fix it so I, and others, could run through it when we ghost or Ruth.

    I thought I'd copy it over here for a handy reference.

    Quick list of things that work:

    1. Changing the viewer, resetting the avatar, then relogging back into the preferred viewer.
    Avatar reverting back to Noob Skin with no eyes and clothes.


    2. Debug
    ● Open Advanced menu (Ctrl+Alt+D)
    ● Select Debug Settings
    ● Type RenderUnloadedAvatar into the text field or select it from the dropdown menu
    ● Change the setting to True


    3. Rebake
    ☛ Advanced > Character > Character Test > Test Female (or Male)
    Cload


    4. Submit a ticket to Second Life Support.

    Here's a summary of a variety of possible solutions culled from Forums and Wikis:


    ◆ Log out and then log back in again.


    ■ Make sure you're plugged directly into your high-speed Internet access. Sometimes things rez slower when you're on a wireless connection.


    Right-click yourself
    ◘ Select My Appearance
    ◘ Go into Appearance mode and back out again.


    ● Open Advanced menu (Ctrl+Alt+D)
    ● Select Debug Settings
    ● Type RenderUnloadedAvatar into the text field or select it from the dropdown menu
    ● Change the setting to True


    1. From your main menu, click Edit > Preferences > Graphics tab.
    2. Slide the Quality & Performance slider to a lower setting.
    3. Check the box next to Custom on the Graphics tab.
    4. Move the Draw Distance slider to the left.
    5. Slide the Mesh Details sliders to Low.
    6. Avatar Impostors is checked by default. If you have unchecked it, activate that feature again.


    ● Log out and restart Second Life (relog).
    Right-click yourself, select Appearance, do NOT save anything, and click Close.


    1. Access and wear a default avatar.
    2. Re-wear your normal shape, skin, clothes, and attachments. This step is much easier if you are using a pre-existing saved outfit, but remember not to save anything before your avatar is restored!


    ✖ Press Ctrl+Alt+D (letter D, not Delete) to obtain the Client Menu at the top of your screen
    ✖ Choose Character... Rebake Textures.
    ✖ Go in and out of the Appearances Menu by right-clicking on your avatar.


    ✔ Got to a club with a "clear visible cache" or "deruthing" object and Touch it.


    ♣ Force a reload with Ctrl-Alt-R (Advanced >> Character >> Rebake Character) or by going into Appearance mode.
    ♣ Try increasing your bandwidth setting in Preferences.
    ♣ Turn off things that may be stealing bandwidth (like your e-mail program, your browser, etc.).
    ♣ Avoid using wireless.


    ♠ Reset your modem and router.


    ✸ If you are an Emerald user, try installing and logging in with a Linden/Second Life viewer like Viewer 2.


    ✚ Clear the cache in the network tab in Preferences.
    ✚ Restart the viewer then wait for it to clear, this will take a little time, it should start automatically when it is done.
    ✚ Don't forget to press apply then OK when your done.


    Advanced > Character > Character Test > Test Female (or Male)


    Teleport to a quiet location.


    ♥ Change your bald base, change your skin, change your clothes. Something you haven't worn in a while so it's not in in your cache would probably be best.


    ☎ Submit a ticket to Second Life Support.


    ✑ Clear your cache.
    Ctrl+P for Preferences > networks > push the button > Apply > OK.
    ✑ Restart the view (logoff)
    ✑ Wait. It will restart automatically when it has been cleared.


    ▼ The problem can be anywhere in your computer, your modem and router, or the Internet. You can check each of those methodically to find out. In the short term, you can sometimes force a reload with Ctrl-Alt-R (that's Advanced >> Character >> Rebake Character -- or by going into Appearance mode. You can also try increasing your bandwidth setting in Preferences and, of course, you can turn off things that may be stealing bandwidth (like your e-mail program, your browser, etc.) and avoid using wireless.


    ▲ Clear your cache. Path is preferences > networks > push the button > Apply > OK . restart the view (logoff) > wait, it will restart automatically when it has been cleared.


    ❐ Are you able to see your avatar okay and everyone else sees it as a cloud? If that's the case, try lowering your maximum bandwidth on the network tab in preferences. I wandered around for about two weeks as a cloud until someone suggested this to me. It worked!

    ◘ Try switching back and forth between viewers.


    ♠ Open SL viewer, but not login. Press Control+shift+G, you will see a new field at the right of the login button. There will se the default "agni" region. Click de arrow and select Aditi, the viewer will change, it is normal no worries. Once you are in-world, do not do anything, do not open more than your inventory and go to recent items and just wait until everything load. Then, just quit SL and relog, change Aditi by Agni to log in normal mode.

    ♥ Clear your cache.

    Viewer 2: Open Me > Preferences > Setup and click the Reset button at the heading Cache Location. Then close and reopen.

    Viewer 1.23: Open Edit > Preferences > Network and click the Clear Cache button.

    Click the Recent tab to speed up your Inventory loading after clearing cache and logging in.

    To speed it up super quick, type e in the Inventory tab Search box and press enter. Wait till inventory loading slows down noticeably then clear the e and type t and press enter. Do the same for a. By this time your inventory should be fully loaded or very close in about 30 seconds (for an inventory of 10,000 or so items). Those letters are the three most frequently used letters in the English language followed by o, i and s.


    ♣ Move up the particle count in preferences in the graphics tab. The advanced settings will need to be enabled. Then you will be a cloud. clear your cache to remove the cloud.
