Question about Dell E173FP 17" LCD Monitor

1 Answer

No picture screen black

Computer was used and left running at Desktop wallpaper. All was ok
Returned to computer two hours later and screen black as usual when hibernating. Computer appears to be running as activity light is blinking but the monitor won't start up. Power light is blinking. Happened once before but monitor came on when computer was restarted - but no result from this action this time.

How to change wallpaper on msi netbook


Which operating system ?

You can change your Windows 7 Desktop photo, also called wallpaper quickly and easily. If you like variety, you can alternate photos and settings on your computer display as well. It takes very little effort, time and computer knowledge to do change your Microsoft Windows Desktop appearance.

Bring up your Microsoft Windows 7 Desktop. Let all the software load completely. You will know it is done when all icons appear in your Windows task bar in the lower left hand corner. Right click (opposite of left click) once on a blank space on your Desktop where there are no icons. This will display a properties menu. Choose personalize from the menu that appears. Notice the different categories of wallpaper that appear. Choose the one you like best. Wallpapers are displayed as tiny icons but you can double-click to see a full image. Click a folder, such as pictures if you would like a picture or wallpaper from your own collection or the Internet. Windows 7 will save this background in your collection for future reference. Check the box that says change picture and choose amount of time you would like the wallpaper in Windows 7 to be displayed. This step is optional. Select picture position. Here you may have to experiment until you find one that fits your screen (resolution) the best. Choose what looks best for you, do not get caught up in the numbers or labels. Hope this helps.

I cant change the wallpaper of my acer D260 how should i remedy this one?


You might have Windows 7 Starter, please be advised that Windows 7 Starter does not include Personalization feature for changing desktop background, window colors, or sound schemes.



However, there is a solution for the desktop wall paper for Windows 7 Starter. You have to deal with the Registry. Please read my notes below.

  • · Click start
  • · In the search box or run, type regedit, allow execution
  • · (Important, export the current registry setting) Right click on Computer and export the registry setting.
  • · Navigate to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\"
  • · On the right hand side pane, doubleclick on key named "Wallpaper"
  • · Change the path of the picture you want to use as your wallpaper (example path is "C:\temp\mywallpaper.jpg")
  • · Right-click on the "Desktop" folder in left pane click Permissions. Click "Advanced"
  • · Go to "Owner" tab, highlight your name in the box that says 'Change owner to' ( There are only two choices the other is Administrator )... once your user name is highlighted click "OK"
  • · Click on "Advanced" again then Uncheck the button that reads "Include inheritable permissions from the object's parent"... click "Remove" when prompted
  • · Click "Add". Type "Everyone" and click "OK". Check Allow "Read Control" and click "OK". Click "OK" again
  • · Highlight "Everyone" and check to Allow "Read" and click "OK"
  • · Restart Computer

I m unable 2 change my theme and wallpaper


If your operating system is Windows 7 Starter edition, the customization is disabled. Consider upgrading to Windows 7 Home Premium or other edition for these features.
BTW . I found a hack for the wallpaper change in Windows 7 starter edition. if you want to try,
1. Click start and type regedit in the search box or run
2. Go to "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop\" folder and click on it
3. On the right hand side you will find a bunch of entries. Find the key named "Wallpaper" and double click on it and put the path of the picture you want as your new wallpaper (example path is "C:\Users\Big Dan\Pictures\new wallpaper.jpg")
4. Right-click on the "Desktop" folder in left pane click Permissions.
5. Click "Advanced"
6. Go to "Owner" tab, highlight your name in the box that says 'Change owner to' ( There are only two choices the other is Administrator )... once your user name is highlighted click "OK"
7. Click on "Advanced" again
8. Uncheck the button that reads "Include inheritable permissions from the object's parent"... click "Remove" when prompted
9. Click "Add"
10. Type "Everyone" and click "OK"
11. Check Allow "Read Control" and click "OK"
12. Click "OK" again
13. Highlight "Everyone" and check to Allow "Read" and click "OK"
14. Restart Computer

Hello there,

How are you changing the Desktop wallpaper? Have you tried opening up an image over the internet and RIGHT click on that image? This will give you a dropdown menu with the "Set as Desktop Background" as an option.

Please let me know how this goes. Thank you for using FixYa.

I'm ignorantabout how to download pictures onto the inernet I need to know how to get a photo onto the screen


I see...from what I understood you want to download a picture from the internet and use it as a wallpaper on the screen of the computer ...nothing more easy ...
forst ..not all pictures from the internet can be downloaded but most do ....to make the most ..you need to open the picture into the larger size...after that right click on it to see if it has the feature for download....Usually this will apear something like :save picture as... when you do this it will ask ya to choose a location on your computer for it ...
you canalready use it as a background..but in the minute that will not find it ..the suport for the wallpaper will be no longer viable...so ...first download...than go to the location you choose for it ...than just right clkick on the picture and it will be a line that says use it as a background...or ...set as wallpaper ..this is it..
all pics into your computer can be use this way ...and you can also manage them by right click on desktop...choosing properties...and than desktop...there will be more features for desktop...but the way I described its the straight and simple one

Cannot maintain wallpaper.


1. change your theme to windows classic and then setup your favorite wallpaper.
2. if this fails create a new user account and see if you have the same problem in it too. If no, you can use the new user account and delete the one which you are using currently.
