    The issue at hand is that my screen saver won't come on. I've talked with technical support, and at least a dozen times I've right clicked on to properties and re set the screen saver. Even using view option does not let it stay on. This may have something to do with my ac adapter because it only happned after I got a DOS message saying my computer does not recognize my ac adapter. The technical support people (3 separate people tried to help) were of no avail except the last person said I should just back up everything and reset the computer like it was new. I did this but then a week later same thing happened. I wonder if the ac adapter is choosy about which wall socket it plugs in? I want my screen saver to work!!! Any ideas?

Hi,
Another option is to view the picture you want using the "Windows Picture and Fax Viewer" then right-click on the image and click on "Set as Desktop Background". This should help you have a new background.

Don't forget to rate... Post back if this doesn't work...

I have lg x140 notebook but cannot change desktop background and wallpaper


Hi babeface1z...

Try these solutions:
Right click on any picture that you want as your laptops background.
A window will open and then you will pick "set as laptop/desktop background.
Now that picture will be your background of your laptop.

Another way is to click Start>Control Panel>Appearance and Themes>Change desktop/laptop background>...When the window opens you will click on the tab Desktop, from there you can choose the desktop backgrounds available there, or you can click the browse button and find the picture you want as your desktop background.

How can i change hp625 background


The HP Mini Netbook is a small, lightweight notebook computer shipped with the Windows XP Home operating system. The HP Mini weighs less than three pounds and enables the user to stay connected while on the go. The background, as well as the general look and feel of the desktop, can be configured to suit the user. To change the desktop background on the HP Mini Netbook, configure the settings in the "Appearance and Themes" section in the Control Panel.

1. Click the Windows "Start" button, and then click the "Control Panel" option.

2. Click the "Appearance and Themes" icon, and then click "Display."

3. Click the "Desktop" tab.

4. Click on a picture in the "Backgrounds" list, or click "Browse" and navigate to a picture file on your hard drive. Click the file, and then click "Open."

5. Click the "Position" drop-down box, and select "Center," "Tile" or "Stretch."

6. Click "OK." The HP Mini desktop background is changed.

How do install a windows desktop background.


I assume you wish to set a picture as your Desktop Background, I hope you know it's called wallpaper. There are few options, but the simplest way is open the picture, right-click and select "Set as Desktop Background", the settings will be updated within few seconds. You'll be able to see the new desktop background. If you are using Windows xp, right click anywhere on the desktop (empty area), select "Properties", click "Desktop" tab, there you'll see the available options to select your picture. Click "Browse", locate your picture which you wish to set as background image and select it. Now, click "Open", and make sure "stretch" is selected in the "Position" box, and then click "Apply", then "Ok".. You can also do the same from the "Control Panel's" Display settings, double-click the "Display" icon to access the settings.
In the same way, in windows vista and windows 7, right-click (blank area) on the desktop, select "Properties" and make the changes from the "Desktop Background" options.
Let me know if you need further help.

Good Luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

How to change my wallpaper cause mine wont let me for some reason


ok, listen carefully. i was trying to figure out how to change my background, cuz i have the acer aspire with windows 7 starter, and with starter, you just not allowed 2 change your background, but if you upgrade to anything higher than starter you can change your background. so theres a way to get free windows home primium. whatyou do is go 2 control panel, then go click on "windows anytime upgrade" then click on enter upgrade key. then ente this code below. just copy and paste it.

RHPQ2-RMFJH-74XYM-BH4JX-XM76F


after that it will upgrade you from windows 7 starter, to windows home premium. for FREE!!! it will probably take about 10 or 15 mins for it 2 fully upgrade. your laptop will restart like twice. then log on your laptop, and some stuff will pop up, telling you about home premium, just ignore it. then, after that all you gotta do 2 change your background is click on a picture and hit set as background. oh yeah, the first time i set a pic for my background it sorta put it way at the top, if it does that 2 u, just go 2 ur pictures folder n "my computer" and right-click on the picture you want to set your background as, and click "edit" it will then take you to the paint mode, after that click on like the little arrow in the top left corner, then go down to set as background, click the little arrow next to it, and then click the last option in the drop box, it says "center" then.....there you go! you go a like $150 kit. FREE. email if you got any questions or cant figure it out. yuh_girl_kk@yahoo.com
