Sounds like the screen resolution has been changed. Right click on the desktop goto Properties -> Settings and slide the Screen Resolution slider to 1024 x 768 then click on Apply. If that works you should see all your icons as you did before, The resolution can be adjusted higher if its more suitable for you. Most 17inch laptops work between 1024 x 768 and 1152 x 864. If that doesn't work let us know! :)

Customise the log-on screen in windows 7


Customise the log-on screen
Changing the Windows log-on screen used to involve some complicated and potentially dangerous hacks, but not any more - Windows 7 makes it easy.

First, browse to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Authentication\LogonUI\Background in REGEDIT, double-click the DWORD key called OEMBackground (not there? Create it) and set its value to 1.

Now find a background image you'd like to use. Make sure it's less than 256KB in size, and matches the aspect ratio of your screen as it'll be stretched to fit.

Next, copy that image into the %windir%\system32\oobe\info\backgrounds folder (create the info\backgrounds folders if they don't exist). Rename the image to backgroundDefault.jpg, reboot, and you should now have a custom log-on image.

Alternatively, use a free tweaking tool to handle everything for you. Logon Changer displays a preview so you can see how the log-on screen will look without rebooting, while the Logon Screen Rotator accepts multiple images and will display a different one every time you log on.

Grey screen but everything else works as normal Initially, on the windows startup (Bios) and the welcome screen, the colour is fine, everything is there. But after a few seconds logged in, everything turns...


That sounds like a problem with your GPU, this is very common with Nvidia graphics cards when built onto motherboards for mobile devices. First contact HP to see if you have any warranty with them, if not then you can either look for a company that specialises in board repair in your area or if you are brave try a DIY fix. Search 'motherboard DIY reflow' on google or youtube to see an example. Hope this helps,

Hello I have a HP laptop and wstwrday was everything OK. Today morning I turn it on and screen is black and laptop make it just sound.. PiiiP one long and two short ? what cain of problem is...


Sounds like a Power-On Self Test (POST) error.

Usually one long and three short beeps indicate a memory error.

Could anything have happened to dislodge the memory? You could try unpluging, taking out the battery, earthing yourself and then removing the cover on the memory enclosure (usually one screw at the bottom releases the cover). Check that the modules are pressed right home into their clips.

If there is more than one module, try removing one at a time to see if there is one failed one.

If the memory has failed, you are looking at new memory I'm afraid.

I have a emachine420 and it will not start, got standby light and powerpack fan working but thats it


Try unpluging everything but the ram and the video card and booting and keep adding one piece back in at a time until it stops booting and then you'll know what the bad piece is. If you get nothing w/ everything but the video card and ram pluged in try to borrow someone elses ram or video card to test those as well.

Laptop


Once you boot up press F-8, when the screen comes up, select last known good configuration, when the next screen comes up select the Operating System.

If this does not work, reboot ,press F8, select safe mode, select Administrator, no password, Log On. Let everything come up,
GOTO Start,Run,type in msconfig, click on OK, select start up tab,
select disable all, click apply, click ok, click restart.

Connecting lap tops to monitors...


Try connecting a mouse and keyboard to the laptop and then start it with the top closed. Not sure if this will work on your model, but it works on a lot of laptops. This should force the PC to use your external monitor as the primary one.
