Open Control Panel, Open Display. Click on settings. Change Color quality to 32bit. This link shows your specifications sheet.
This is for the 5100 Series
Click below to upgrade your video card. Select: Windows Vista 32-Bit Edition. Than choose: Integrated/motherboard. Than pick: Radeon Xpress 1100.
This should put some perk back in the coffee pot!

one day my desktop switched from my selected theme to solid black. I could not choose anything else until I activated Windows - because the "trial period" had expired.

How to change background desktop for acer aspire one(notebook)

I am assuming you have Microsoft Windows installed on this machine. To change the desktop background, right-click on the desktop and click either "Properties" or "Personalize". A window will pop up showing the current settings, including the current desktop background. To change it locate the picture you want to change it to, then click "apply". Go back to the desktop to confirm the change has been made.
If the picture you would like to use is on the internet, you can right-click on the picture and select "set as background".
Hope this helps!

How do I get the Acer desktop?

Hi lydaloudon. Depending on which operating system you have, there are a couple of different ways to accomplish this. I will list the steps for both Windows XP and Vista.
WINDOWS XP: Click START, then click CONTROL PANEL. In the control panel double click DISPLAY. In the DISPLAY PROPERTIES window, click the DESKTOP tab. Under this tab you will see a list of backgrounds. Just choose the one you want and modify it if you wish by changing the color or position, then click OK.

VISTA: Click the Start button down in the bottom left corner (little round Windows button), click CONTROL PANEL. Double click APPEARANCE AND PERSONALIZATION and then DESKTOP BACKGROUND. Double click the background you want and click OK.

Hope this helps!
