Yea your monitor is shot. Try it on another computer and see if it does the same thing. If it does not do the same thing, your video card or port is going bad in your computer.

How do i set a picture for the background on my acer aspire one

Hi Ashley,

I think it depends on the operating system you are using.

If it is just Windows Home Starter, then users are not allowed to customize it by using their personal pictures as background.

To be able to use your personal picture, you need at least a Windows Home Basic, Windows Home Premium version, Windows Professional or Windows Ultimate.

Check the type of Windows Version you are using to know what is wrong by doing this:

On your computer,

1.) Click on start

2.) Click on control panel

3.) On the page that comes up click on Systems and Security

4.) On the next page click on System.

5.) On the new page, Check what is written under the "Windows Edition"

If what is written under it is something like Windows Starter or Windows Basic, then you will need to upgrade your Windows to something like Windows Professional or Windows Ultimate to be able to use your personal pictures as a background.

To better understand this: Click and Check out this link on Microsoft site:
Changing Desktop Background

Let me know what you found out.

Good Luck and thanks for using Fixya.

Seem my netbook window 7 hp 110-3000 dont have a desktop background why i cant set up my personal background why please help tq

If you are running Windows 7 Starter, you cannot change the desktop background as easily. There is a software utility to do this, available here:

Follow those instructions, and you'll be able to change your desktop wallpaper the normal way.
If you aren't using Windows 7 Starter, or you used the patch that I linked you to, then right click on your Desktop, and then click on Personalize.

Hi juliojose70,

To change the desktop background please follow the below steps / ideas.

A shortcut would be to right click the file or image you want to use as a desktop background and then select the set as desktop wallpaper option.

The other way is to right click anywhere on a free space in desktop and then select properties , and then in the desktop tab , select that wallpaper you desire , either from the built in ones of by browsing through the browse button and then selecting the one that you want , as per the location.

Hope this helps ...:) Your feed back would be appreciated.

How do i set laptop background image on my compaq 615?

This can be found in the Help and Support section of Windows on your laptop.

To change the desktop background
  1. ? click on your desktop-Select personalize. This will open a window that asks you to select your desktop background

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

    If the picture you want to use isn't in the list of desktop background pictures, click an item in the Picture location list to see other categories, or click Browse to search for the picture on your computer. When you find the picture that you want, double-click it. It will become your desktop background.

    getcontent.aspx?assetid=8456a207-d4c8-401d-8729-c5dda3f0e72c&documentset=en-us&prod=win700&market=usLook for pictures in other locations on your computer

  3. Under Picture position, click the arrow and choose whether to crop the picture to fill the screen, fit the picture to the screen, stretch the picture to fit the screen, tile the picture, or center the picture on the screen, and then click Save changes.

  • If you choose to have a fitted or centered picture as your desktop background, you can also frame your picture with a color background. Under Picture position, click Fit or Center. Click Change background color, click a color, and then click OK.

  • To make any picture stored on your computer (or a picture you are currently viewing) your desktop background, right-click the picture, and then click Set as Desktop Background.

Have Acer Apsire One with Windows 7. Can't change desktop background.

Yup...this is a "feature" of Windows 7 Starter, which is what came with your netbook. It doesn't allow for changing the desktop background.

I have to also point out that this "non-feature" is locked into the End User License Agreement (EULA) which specifically prohibits hacks to change the background. The only "legal" option is to upgrade to Windows 7 Home.

Having said all that, I could not stop you from Googling "How to change Windows 7 Starter wallpaper" and finding several easy hacks (which I am told) work well to allow a change of wallpaper. That, however, is at your own risk etc.

Hope that is helpful.

How i can change the background on my ipod?

Here are two different guides on how to do it. Note that the first one only works for the 5th generation ipod video. The second hack does "not work on Mac computers, and like many other iPod hacks, it doesn't work on the Shuffle, 2nd and 3rd generation Nano, and the new Classic or iPod touch due to higher levels of encryption." Please also note that this will void your warranty with Apple.

Good luck

Computer back ground

What version of windows do you have? You might have a setting in your registry that is disabling changing desktop background. Is it a personal computer or a work computer?
