I have an Acer Travelmate 4200. At some point while surfing the web I wanted to save an image and accidently clicked "Set as background". Since then whenever I use a wallpaper, it sets the wallpaper completely off centre in the top left corner of the screen - as if the laptop sees the screen as being alot bigger than it really is. I used to be able to fix this - it would re-center by changing the screen resolution to something else then back again, but only within the Intel Graphics Accelerator program - doing the same with only the screen properties panel did not move the picture at all. I've tried re-installing screen drivers to no avail. Even with the Intel Graphics Accelerator program uninstalled, it still moves the wallpaper to the top-left of the screen, only now I have no way of putting it in the center again. I've also tried changing the screen resolution under the screen properties panel, advanced, adapter then "List all modes", but no luck there. I suspect active desktop might have someting to do with it, but have no webpage syncronized with the desktop.

Insert Windows Reinstallation disk into tray, Boot to CD/DVD-ROM by pressing F12 at initial boot screens, delete existing Windows partition, re-create partition, and then follow steps to reinstall Windows. This will lead you to an option for formatting hard drive. I recommend choosing the full format versus the quick, from this point you can let windows install, or just shut the computer down when the format finishes. You will have to watch the progress, though, if you don't want the install to commence.
Boot disk option:
For XP, 95, 98, or ME, follow the instructions at this MS article page. It will walk you through creating a boot disk that will allow you to format.
Some common problems that could cause System Restore not to work properly and their solutions include the following: • There is less than 200 MB of free space available on the computer—free up some space on the hard drive by deleting unused files or images. • After rebooting, the restoration is unsuccessful—choose an earlier restore point and try again. • Restoration was denied due to non-administrator status—log out and then back in as an administrator. • The System Restore Service is not running—Open Administrative Tools, click Computer Management, and then click Services and Applications. Click Services, and double-click System Restore Services from the list. Verify the service is started and running. If not, under Service status, click Start and change the startup type to Automatic.
