SOURCE: Themes continued..

Hi, May be as Frankenstein says StyleXP would solve your problem, But you can try to change the performance setting, right click my computer>>properties>>advanced>>Setting(performance) and see if the "use background image for each folder" is ticked. otherwise you can tick all the checkbox and try it out with selecting your themes. There are different themes for different properties here you can check and download. http://www.microsoft.com/windowsxp/downloads/desktop/default.mspx

SOURCE: Hi, My desktop screen is white say this

This could be a sign of possible issues. I would check the drive for bad sectors. I would run a test of the memory (such as Mem test86) and verify there are no problems.

How To Find Motherboard Drivers


How To Find Motherboard Drivers:

Here is a real world example on Fixya.com of some one having a problem getting drivers:

Question:
I need drivers for my FC GIGABYTE 8vm533m-rz motherboad

That is a some what a perfect question, the brand has been given and the motherboard modal number has also been given, so finding the drivers will be a peace of cake !

First of all, always go to the makers brand website, in this case we would go to Gigabyte's official website located here

Next, go to support & downloads;
Then copy and paste the motherboard modal number ( in this case is 8vm533m-rz )
From there we can get the drivers, located : HERE
locate the bios update: HERE
and that crucial mobo manual we all seem to lose: HERE

And that's the very basics, the same method would be used for every motherboard. Mostly all manufactures are happy to provide the drivers and support software on there websites.

Hope this helps some one out there.

How to change back ground color of an image?


Too many varibles ,but I'll give it a try. are there any layers? does the background layer ( the one called background at the bottom of the list in the LAyers palettte) have anything in it? area all the visible layers above the "background" transparent where they are "white"? If this is the case it's much easier than if any of the layers are "white" or some other color- then you need to select out the items you want not to change color, using any number of the available "selection" tools, from the area you want to change color- now that can be a challenge.

tune down the settings in game. example: changing screen resoloution from 1200x1000 to 800x600, also decreasing the quality may help. another thing you can try is exiting ALL applications that are running while the game is running that are not needed, such as any downloading clients or anything that may be using up some of your computers processing speed.
