Generally, you right click on a blank spot on your desk top; personalize, and reset your picture to stretch, or tile or as you have it center.
Another choice is download Picasa from Google. It is a great picture catalogue program that allows you to choose your desktop background.

Have you removed all of the screws from the bezel all the way around the screen - looking at the picture of the laptop there should be six screws one in each corner and two more across the top, left and right of the web cam.

Get the whole bezel loose so you can bend it down and see what is holding the bezel in place, sometimes you have to be firm in pulling the bezel away from the top plastic (back of the screen) if you bend it forwards you should be able to see what is holding it in place - good luck

HP laptop monitor for dv7-1170us does not work


It sounds like your flat vga cable has pulled loose inside the panel. Just take the lid apart on your screen assembly and press that flat ribbon cable back in and tape it in place.

Are Dell monitors not compatible with older HP Pavilion Computer? I tried to connect my HP CPU to a Dell monitor and it will not recognize it at all.


It shouldn't make any difference which monitor you are connecting to any computer. In fact, I am running a 19" HP Flat Panel on my Dell Dimension 2400 right now. It is NOT a wide screen monitor as the Dell built in graphics card will not support the RESOLUTION RATIO required for the wide screen. Check what setting is "native resolution" for your monitor and see if your graphics card will support it. If not, using your old monitor, try different resolution settings. Right click on your desk top, click on properties and that should bring up the display properties box. Try a lower setting as larger settings are the ones that will give you a black screen. It will probably give you a smaller picture on your old monitor, or perhaps smaller or larger icons on the desk top. Accept the new settings, turn off your computer and switch monitors, and turn your computer back on. If you get a picture, but it does not fill the whole screen or the icons seem too large or small, then go back into properties from the desktop and try a different resolution ratio until the picture seems correct.

After I have downloaded an image from my Logutech camera, I would like to send this as ane-mail attachement. how do I do this please.


Most people store their pictures in the My picture folder which is located in My Documents. You must also consider the size of the file before you send it. A large picture can take along time to download and the person you are sending it to may not happy about that. For example pictures taken from a 7 mega pixel digital camera can be huge and must be resized. Sometimes your email program will ask you if you would like to make your picture smaller to send.
How to place a picture with your email
In the email
  1. Open a New Message box
