Question about Acer Computers & Internet

1 Answer

I just purchased three emachine em250 notebooks and cannot get any of them to allow me to change the background picture. I follow all of the steps, even so far as going to a windows7 wallpaper download site, but it refuses to apply it. no error message, nothing, just keeps the default picture that came with it. i went on live chat with acer, and they told me ''you have to go thru their other tech program, which is $59.99 for one half hour.'' ????

    I have a emachines M250 series notebook ad can't find a way to put a picture of my choosing on to the desktop background

    Welcome to Windows 7 starter for netbooks. It will not allow a different desktop background. The best bet is to buy, yes buy, Windows 7 and upgrade your netbook.
