  1. Open Desktop Background by clicking the Start button, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Desktop Background.

  2. Click the picture or color you want for your desktop background.

    If the picture you want to use is not in the list of desktop background pictures, click the Picture location down arrow to view other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer. When you find the picture you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background and appear in the list of desktop backgrounds.

My monitor goes blank while watching a movie on netflex about every 8 min very annoying . I jiggle the mouse and the picture comes back . sound ok . Help


Your computer is just going to sleep from what it sounds like.

Just get into the monitor/power saving/screen saver settings and make it so the monitor has a longer relay to shut down when there is no mouse/keyboard movement.

My monitor turns on and says signal is ok, but then is states to check the pc signal, what happened?


Make sure your monitor cable is secure on both sides. If you cannot secure it, see if you can straighten it and if a picture comes on.

If that does not produce a picture, can you connect the monitor to another machine? Does it produce a picture? If it does, we know that the problem is with the computer.

Can you put another monitor on the machine? If so, we have something with drivers/sync speeds. If not, we likely have a bad video card.

When i turn on my monitor the green light comes on then goes to yellow ... no picture ,just black. what causes this


This light sequence typically means there is no signal coming from the computer. You can verify by trying the monitor on another computer or trying a different monitor that is known to work on this computer.

The monitor turns off and on repeatedly.


Is it desktop or laptop computer?
If its desktop the data cable might be loose on the back of the desktop computer.

Monitor won't come on


Right this problem could be the result of a couple of possible faults, the first thing to do is rule out the cables. Try connecting your PC to a monitor using a different cable... check all the connections. Try connecting you PC to another monitor again... If you are still not getting a picture It sounds like you have a problem with your computer's graphics card - new graphics cards are fairly cheap and quite simple to install.

No picture on tv


Move your mouse over to a empty part of the desktop and press the right mouse button. Select properties.

Make sure that your tv is connected to the computer, that it is turned on, and that it is set for line input on that device.

Select the settings tab. You should see this box appear.

Monitor one is your computer monitor. Monitor 2 is your tv. It should be greyed out. If you move the mouse over to 2 and press the right mouse button make sure the attached is checked off. If not do this right now.

You may have to click on monitor two as well and select the advanced button on this screen. Then look in the settings to turn the tv on (this happens with ATI cards, NVidia cards may have a similar setting as well). Once it is turned on and you hit apply the picture should come on the screen. If you check off extend windows desktop onto this monitor, you will only see the desktop without any icons. Make sure that feature is disabled when you use monitor 2 (by default it is).

This should keep you busy to get it to work. Let me know if you need anymore assistance on this.
