Question about Acer Aspire 5050 Notebook

1 Answer

Distorted colours with photos/pictures

All photos, the desktop background and some games have very distorted colours. They appear much redder than normal and have much lower resolution than they should.
It's unable to load games that require detailed graphics or video and these problems appeared at the same time.
I don't know much about IT, could there be a problem with the hardware or software?

How do i set a photo as desktop background? cannot find desktop properties...


  1. You can right click on the picture itself and select "set as Desktop background"

  2. Or:

  3. Click on the Start menu button. Then click on Settings and then on Control Panel.

  4. Double-click on the Display icon or text link. This will open a window named Display Properties.

  5. Click on Background if that tab is not selected. Click on one of the items that appear in the box labeled Wallpaper.

  6. Inspect the preview that appears above the Wallpaper menubox. Use the Display menu to the right to experiment with tiling, stretching or centering the picture that you are previewing.

  7. Click on Browse to use an image stored elsewhere on your hard drive. Locate the image and click Open.

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

Trying to set my background picture and the browse list is lite up but can't scroll and add picture to the customize desktop and only half my screen gets half the picture the rest of the screen is a color....


try playing around with the position options "stretch and the others" and see if that works. make sure you dont have any desktop theme software on your system aswell and if you do, uninstall it.
is it xp or vista?

I am having a problem with my nvidia graphics card i believe


Go to NVIDIA control panel (Right Click on Windows Desktop)
Set and check ALL your Paramaters to match with your Hardware
reduce resolution (if required) to get the quality you ask for.
If you use CRT screen be aware of magnetic fields (Speakers, UPS, motors) interferences: try moving screen or disturbances.
Pls let me know if working.

Screen distorted


Hi its only a guess but it sounds like you might have the screen resolution turned up to high for the monitor to handle.. if you want to give it a try, try this.. Turn Machine off then turn PC on, and keep pressing F8 when u switch it on till the menu appears, Select SAFE MODE Once windows loads it will look a little different in safe mode. right click on the desktop and select properties go into display tab, and change the resolution to 800x600 and hit apply. Restart PC and see if it helps any... All the best & hope it works John
