Question about Dell DIMENSION 3000 CELERON 2.4GHZ CD-RW,80GB,256MB WINDOWS XP DESKTOP PC (074576101317)
I am having trouble setting a wallpaper on my computer. When I go to the control panel to change the display, it will only let me change the color of the background - the other options are light grey and I cannot click on them. However, when I restart or turn on my computer, the wallpaper does flash for a second, but once it brings up the icon screen, it is gone. I tried to re-install the display drivers from the Windows website. I would appreciate any help you can provide.
This usually happens is due to spywares disabling the wallpaper option from the computer. Try running this registry fix.

Hi, I can help you with this problem. I ran into the same one a while back. You need the most current and correct drivers for your video card. Can you tell me what kind of video card you have? Brand and model number.

Tips for a great answer:
Open Display in Control Panel.
On the Screen Saver tab, under Screen saver, click a screen saver in the list.
FOR WINDOWS VISTA & 7
Open Screen Saver Settings by clicking the Start button , clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Screen Saver.
Under Screen saver, in the drop-down list, click the screen saver you want to use.
Click Preview to see what your chosen screen saver will look like.

Then right click on Policies > New > KEY > name it as "ActiveDesktop".
Next in RHS, rt click > New > DWORD > name it as "NoChangingWallPaper" .
The DWORD value 1 will restrict change in desktop wallpaper. To allow change give it value as 0.
(3) If it still doesnt work, maybe your TranscodedWallpaper.jpg file has become corrupted.
Open explorer and type the following in the adress bar and hit Enter:
Here, rename TranscodedWallpaper.jpg to TranscodedWallpaper.old.
Next, double-click slideshow.ini file to open it with Notepad. Empty its contents. That is, select all the text and delete it. Save the changes. Close explorer windows.
Hope something helps!
