I'm assuming your are reffering to this screen:
http://johnbokma.com/messenger/my-display-picture.png

suggestion:

you may not have priviledges to change the picture...
try the following:
1. are you logged in as an administrator?.. try to log into your computer as an administrator and try again
2. exit the msn messenger by right clicking on the icon on the system tray and selecting exit, then execute msn messenger again by right clicking on the msn messenger icon and selecting 'run as' then provide an administrator and their password account credentials and try to change the picture.
3. Reinstall last version of msn messenger.

    image files may have different formats.. some of those formats may be supported while other may not. on the same token to use an image on internet there are certain rules for image size (megabytes) that you may need to obey.



    check what other image file you can put up there. and then compare that image that works with the one that you want to use and that the you're not been allowed. things to compare are



    1. the extension: this is the last 3 letter of the name of the image. like image1.gif or image2.jpg, gif and jpg are extensions, check you're not trying to use an extension that is associated with propriatery type of image specifically associated with a specialized program (for instance a coreldraw type of image application)



    2. size: the bigger the image the unlikely it will be for the messenger to take it in. go for images that are less that 1 megabyte in size. you can possibly rezise the actual dimension of your image and then save it with a different name and hopefully that will save some megabytes that could make the image usuable. you can also try to change the format to something with less colors (you do that by saving the image by going to in save as... and choosing another format) that will decrease the size of the image file, too. Remember to save the changes to the image with a different name so you don't sacrifice the main image while you're making changes on it.

Cannot set as desktop


If you are unable to change or display the wallpaper of your Windows 7 or Vista desktop, try this :
(1) Open Control Panel > Ease of Access Center > Make the computer easier to see.
viswalp.jpgEnsure that Remove background images (where available) is unchecked.
Save, Apply, Exit.
This should help !
(2) If it doesnt, try this:
Run regedit and navigate to the following key:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies
Then right click on Policies > New > KEY > name it as "ActiveDesktop".
Next in RHS, rt click > New > DWORD > name it as "NoChangingWallPaper" .
The DWORD value 1 will restrict change in desktop wallpaper. To allow change give it value as 0.
Reboot.
(3) If it still doesnt work, maybe your TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file has become corrupted.
Open explorer and type the following in the adress bar and hit Enter:

%USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes\
Here, rename TranscodedWallpaper.jpg to TranscodedWallpaper.old.
Next, double-click slideshow.ini file to open it with Notepad. Empty its contents. That is, select all the text and delete it. Save the changes. Close explorer windows.
Hope something helps!

Im unable to access my fb games lately. When I click the app on my fb page it says, page requested not found. The link doesnt look the same. When I change it, it switches back.


It is possible that you enabled Secure Browsing (https) on your account. Many games do not allow you to have the https connection. To turn this off you could click on Account, then Account Settings at the top right. When that page loads there are several options. Towards the bottom is Account Security. Click Change. Uncheck
Secure Browsing (https) Browse Facebook on a secure connection (https) whenever possible


Click Save and try again. When you are done playing your games if you are still concerned about your security you can repeat this process and then check that box and save when you are finished gaming.

Hi there

Is it a LCD or DLP ?

First try using a different cable. If the problem stil occurs this might be a faulty Mainboard - which would need either repair or replacement.

Does the discolouration show in the startup screen as well ?
