I hope this helps . The moment you use position:absolute or position:fixed it will be cut out and placed on a new layer (if you would compare it with how photoshop works), therefore your browser does not "know" the dimensions anymore and will simply give it 0 height when positioning the other elements. Or as @Terry commented:
code :
top: 60px;

Any of those help You can use min-height and min-width to define the minimum values for those dimensions, which will be expanded to accommodate new/additional/larger content as necessary.
You can couple with the max-height and max-width attributes, which will allow the elements to move from the minimum, as necessary, to the maximum permitted value for the dimension.
code :
#content {
    position: absolute;
    min-height: 5em;
    max-height: 15em;
    min-width: 5em;
    max-width: 15em;
    border: 1px solid #f90;
    bottom: 0.5em;
    right: 0.5em;
    overflow: auto;

fixed the issue. Will look into that further http://jsfiddle.net/chricholson/UHrLH/10/
This will give you boxes inline but unfortunately the pairs will not extend to match the height of it's partner. To do this you will need to use tables or a javscript overwrite to capture the height. Also, bear in mind display: inline-block will not work on divs in IE7 and below, it would work on a span though: http://www.quirksmode.org/css/display.html#t03

around this issue Remove the height: 800px and add overflow: auto.
The problem is caused by the floating elements inside it.
code :
.content {
  background: #eeeeee;
  background: -moz-linear-gradient(top,  #eeeeee 0%, #f4f4f4 100%);
  background: -webkit-gradient(linear, left top, left bottom, color-stop(0%,#eeeeee), color-stop(100%,#f4f4f4));
  background: -webkit-linear-gradient(top,  #eeeeee 0%,#f4f4f4 100%);
  background: -o-linear-gradient(top,  #eeeeee 0%,#f4f4f4 100%);
  background: -ms-linear-gradient(top,  #eeeeee 0%,#f4f4f4 100%);
  background: linear-gradient(to bottom,  #eeeeee 0%,#f4f4f4 100%);
  filter: progid:DXImageTransform.Microsoft.gradient( startColorstr='#eeeeee', endColorstr='#f4f4f4',GradientType=0 );
  border: 2px solid rgb(34, 178, 76);
  border: 2px solid rgba(34, 178, 76, .5);
  -webkit-background-clip: padding-box;
  background-clip: padding-box;
  /* height: 800px; REMOVE */
  margin: 93px auto;
  margin-bottom: 10px !important;
  overflow: auto; /* ADD */

To fix the issue you can do Check out this DEMO.
You need to check out the width/height ratio and adjust the padding-top with specific percentage value so the image shows nicely.
code :
<!--slide-part-starts--><div class="slide-part">
<!--slider-starts--><div class="fadein">
<img style="cursor:pointer" onclick="window.location.href='http://myevio.com/powerock-13600mAh-powerbank.html'" src="http://placehold.it/1150x350"><!--powerock-->
<img style="cursor:pointer" onclick="window.location.href='http://myevio.com/powerpunch-10500mAh-powerbank.html'" src="http://placehold.it/1150x350"><!--powerpunch-->

<!--about-evio-starts--><div class="about-evio">

    margin:0 auto;

.fadein {
    padding-top: 27%;
    margin:0 auto; 

.fadein img {

    padding:50px 0 50px 0;
    border-top:1px solid #000;
    border-bottom:1px solid #000;

Hope that helps I have been dealing with some problem about the divs height. It simply doesnt expand even thought theres a content. Let me first show you the problem on the screenshots: , I am not sure this is what you want or not. But,
code :
position of `#mytextbox` div is absolute so container will never get its height.  
.container {
    display: flex;
    flex-flow: row wrap;
    width: 40%;
    margin-left: 30%;
    margin-right: 30%;
    padding-left: 0;
    padding-right: 0;

#menu2 {
    position: relative;
    padding: 5% 0;

.mybox {
        padding-top: 3%;
        padding-bottom: 3%;
        width: 30%;
        font-size: 1.5em;

#mytextbox {
        top: 30%;
        z-index: 2;
        order: 3;
        border: 1px solid black;
                rgba(255, 255, 255, 1), 
                rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.7)
                url('./../images/Pattern.png') bottom no-repeat;

#box1 {
        position: absolute;
        top: 5%;
        order: 1;
        background-color: rgb(66,142,158);
        margin-right: 25%;
        margin-left: -28%;

        position: absolute;
        order: 2;
        background-color: rgb(196,52,52);
        margin-left: 30%;
        right: -28%;
        top: 5%;
#box3 {
        position: absolute;
        order: 4;
        background-color: rgb(223,187,66);
        margin-right: 30%;
        margin-left: -28%;
        bottom: 5%;
