All post attachments? Or just images? Try using a different image library if one is available:

Admin CP -> Home -> Options -> Attachments -> Default Image Processor

Yeah, install ImageMagick and enable it in the Admin CP. It might be a problem with your image library, and changing image libraries is one way to test it.

When uploading an image as a post attachment the image library is used to resize it.
