Probably you have too many programs on startup. That is why it is taking so long.

2 MIN ICON ON WELCOME SCREEN ACER


My dad fixed this problem by changing the background on his computer. I know this sounds like a strange fix, but apparently certain backgrounds just affect the load time and I think that's what this "2 min" icon was representing. His icon has now disappeared.

How can i change hp625 background


The HP Mini Netbook is a small, lightweight notebook computer shipped with the Windows XP Home operating system. The HP Mini weighs less than three pounds and enables the user to stay connected while on the go. The background, as well as the general look and feel of the desktop, can be configured to suit the user. To change the desktop background on the HP Mini Netbook, configure the settings in the "Appearance and Themes" section in the Control Panel.

1. Click the Windows "Start" button, and then click the "Control Panel" option.

2. Click the "Appearance and Themes" icon, and then click "Display."

3. Click the "Desktop" tab.

4. Click on a picture in the "Backgrounds" list, or click "Browse" and navigate to a picture file on your hard drive. Click the file, and then click "Open."

5. Click the "Position" drop-down box, and select "Center," "Tile" or "Stretch."

6. Click "OK." The HP Mini desktop background is changed.

I hope you find it very helpful. Thank you for using fixya.

Can see the desktop and icons, but have no control over them with mouse - can click and doubleclick, but to no avail.


I think someone played a practical joke on you. I bet one of your friends changed your desktop to look like it has icons and then hid the real icons.

Right click on your desktop, and then under the "View" menu item, make sure "Show Desktop Icons" is checked.

Also, right click on the desktop and select "Personalize", then at the bottom of the dialog, select "Choose Desktop Background" and change your desktop background.

  8. Click OK to change your background, or wallpaper. Click Cancel if you decide to maintain your current settings.

Proper shut down


Hi doodu13appa,

Nothing beats a complete "Shut Down" through the Start menu in the lower left-hand corner of your Windows screen. This allows all open windows to be properly closed, with current data saved, memory and cache cleared. This is like going to bed at night with nothing on your mind, sleeping soundly, and waking up refreshed in the morning.

Then, when the computer is powered up the next time, it will be operating at its optimum performance levels without being "bogged" down with excessive leftover garbage from previous sessions. There's nothing wrong with powering your laptop, or desktop, down by clicking the power button and letting it go into standby, sleep, or hibernate mode, much of the time. It leaves you with a quick-startup the next time you are ready to use your computer, and most of your open programs will still be running in the background. Clicking on your logon will have your right back where you last left off.
