We recently had some issues with spyware on our system. That since has been resolved but in the midst of figuring that out, we are no longer able to customize our backgrounds for our desktop. I can't use any of the available backgrounds nor can I set a picture as my background. I am sure we messed up a setting or something, but have been unable to locate what went wrong. Your guidance would be greatly appreciated.

It could be a number of issues including a failing or overheating videocard, a damaged monitor or possibly even a video driver issue. The first thing to do is to narrow down the source of this problem. First thing you may try is to restart the computer in safe mode. If the line shows up in safemode it is most likely a fractured control array and your monitor, and it will need to be replaced or repaired. If it doesn't occur in safemode however, the next step would be to either update the driver for your videocard or if you have recently updated it, you could try rolling the driver back to a previous version. If this doesn't resolve the issue, your videocard may be failing and needs to be replaced.
Either your PC video card has fried or it is in fact the monitor that is malfunctioning. Try plugging another monitor into the PC to test which is the problem. If the test monitor still doesn't display your desktop then it is indeed a problem with your system and not the monitor. In this case you will need to have a techinition assess the damaged components. If you can faintly see your desktop in the background then it may be a backlighting issue with your monitor.

First disconnect the CPU with Monitor ,Keyboard and Mouse and re-connect.after that remove RAM and re-insert or check with another RAM if issue resolve if not then check that the Keboard Num lock is on/off or not if not then issue with your system if yes then your monitor is faulty might be EHT has been faulty.
For cpu check the VGA port and Operating system
Hi, If you haven't installed some kind of an update manager then these dialogue boxes are most likely due to adware or spyware on your system. Try installing an anti-spyware utility an do a full system scan for spyware. There are many spyware utilities available on the internet for free. Do a google search to find a free spyware application. Hope this is helpful. Regards, Graemevm
You may have a virus, they usually affect your background screen on your computer and they can be nasty and aggressive. I have fought many and it's not easy to beat them even with virus protection. First do not take any random offers for virus protection that may pop up, second go with a well known virus protection program like mcaffe or norton. These are well worth the price and subscriptions are usually for a year. Purchase one of these from your computer and let it run, follow the instructions to eliminate any possible threats and if this doesn't resolve all the issues don't get upset the virus protection is very good but even they may not work completely if you infact have a virus already on your computer. it never hurts to employ the services or the geek squad or those fox people.
Sounds like an inverter problem. If the power supply is internal replace the capacitors coming out of the voltage regulators. These are usually 1000mf and/or 470mf. If that doesn't do the trick look up the numbers on the 8-pin chips that drive the secondary transformers on the inverter to see if they are getting the right voltages. Good Luck!
This problem sounds like it has to do with your video adapter settings rather than the monitor itself. What way have happened is that your screen resolution size decreased (explaining the zoomed in), while the desktop size remained the same (explaing the ability to slide all over the place.).
All video adapters are different, but try the following.
Right click on your desktop and select properties.
Go to the Settings tab. Do you have 2 slide bars there? Possibly one for Screen Resolution and another for Desktop size? If so, are they set to different values?
Go resolve the issue, set both sliding bars to the same values, for example 1024 by 768 pixels. Adjust these setting to get back to the settings you had before, making sure that both values are the same.
