If you're running XP and using a picture of your own; I can think of 3 possible causes:
1. The color button in Display Properties/ Desktop is set on black
2. The picture you're using is not compatible for some reason
3. Your theme is not being applied or is being reset to default upon restarting.
Check your settings again in the above location. Your theme should read "modified theme"
Let me know if this helps

My Acer Aspire One netbook only changes the wallpaper to solid colors.


one day my desktop switched from my selected theme to solid black. I could not choose anything else until I activated Windows - because the "trial period" had expired.
That was also in Win7

Tip

Changing folder background


do you want to change the folder background?
do the following steps:

1. Open Command Prompt and set folder attribute to "system". Suppose there is a folder "Setup" in "D:\" drive, in which you want to set a wallpaper as background image. So give following command in Command Prompt:
attrib +s D:\Setup
It'll change the attribute to "system ".
2. Now open Notepad and paste following code:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=path_of_the_wallpaper
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
Now change "path_of_the_wallpaper" to the exact path of the wallpaper which you want to set as background. Suppose the wallpaper is stored in "D:\Wallpaper\Image1.jpg", then the code will be as following:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=D:\Wallpaper\Image1.jpg
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
NOTE: If you copy the wallpaper in the same folder which you are editing, then you can simply put the wallpaper name in the file. e.g. if you copy the "Image1.jpg" file in "Setup" folder, then the code will be as following:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=Image1.jpg
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
"IconArea_Text" stands for the text color, you can change it to white, yellow, blue, black or any other color. You just need to know the hexa-decimal number of the color and then replace the code in "IconArea_Text" section. A few most used color codes are as follows:
Black - 0x00000000
White - 0x00FFFFFF
Green - 0x0000FF00
Blue - 0x00FF0000
Purple - 0x00C000C0
Red - 0x000000FF
Yellow - 0x0000FFFF
Indigo - 0x00FFFF00
3. Now save the file with name "Desktop.ini" (including quotes) and copy the file in the desired folder which is "Setup" in our example.
4. Thats it. Close the folder and re-open it. Now it should show the wallpaper as background.

Applying the settings to the logon desktop


Next, you need to apply the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop / Welcome Screen (Technically, HKEY_USERS\.Default registry key), so that the Screensaver is invoked when no user is logged on. Copying all the Screensaver settings to the Logon Desktop (or Welcome Screen) manually is a tough task. Use Tweak UI instead.
Download and install TweakUI.
Launch TweakUI and click Logon, click Settings.
Select Screensaver from the list box and choose Copy Now
The Screensaver settings are applied to the Logon Desktop
Restart Windows for the changes to take effect
Allow few minutes at the Logon screen, to test if the Screensaver is working properly. The Screensaver should launch after the timeout. It will look as if the Company Logo moves around.
Additional Tip
The User interface / slider allows the minimum value for picture change interval to 6 seconds only. To reduce the change interval to less than 6 seconds, alter the registry value named ChangeInterval (Set decimal value 1000 for 1 Second, and so forth) in this key:
HKEY_USERS \ .DEFAULT \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow
For Current user profile, make the change here:
HKEY_CURRENT_USER \ Control Panel \ Screen Saver.Slideshow

With no logon wallpaper set, Windows displays a pre-defined color for the logon desktop. ( If you have enabled Welcome Screen, press CTRL+ALT+DEL twice to see the logon screen background color. ) To change the logon background color to that of your choice, you need to alter the registry:
Click Start, Run and type REGEDIT and press Enter
Navigate to the following key:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors
Backup the registry key by exporting to a REG file
In the right pane, double-click Background
In the Edit String dialog box, type the Color code in R G B format and then click OK.
Example: Type 0 0 0 if you want to see a Black background. You can choose any combination from 0-255
Points to ponder
If the logon Wallpaper is set, the background Color may not be visible. So, you must reset the Wallpaper value to a blank string in this key: HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Desktop
If the Background value is set under the following Winlogon registry key, the above setting is ignored. In other words, the Winlogon\Background value takes precedence over the .DEFAULT..\Background value.
HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon

One day my computer just stopped displaying a wallpaper of any kind. The whole of the desktop background is black. All the short cuts still appear but no image "set as background". Any solutions?


when posting pc problems you need to post your specs such as your operating system version and if it is a laptop or desktop and the model of if it was home built. etc. all i can tell you from that is, well, u either deleted the picture that was set as the background or it got corrupted. Or your theme changed and changed the wallpaper or even the pc or laptop is set to run as efficiently as possible with spending any unnecessary resources so it removed the wallpaper.

Wallpaper changed to something blue with yellow and blue dialog


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!
