Icons green tint to them

Over last few day i am getting a green tint on the background to desktop icons, they were also there in the background menus. I have adjusted the settings in Nvidia graphics display and checked drivers etc. Although it better you can still see it in the background. I have not had this previously and it started a few days ago. I have had the laptop 2 days short of 2 years and am wondering if the graphics card is failing and if it is how hard to replace?

    OK i have done some adjustment in the Nvidia display panel and it has improved, i have restored the menu background to grey but the icons or the busy icon when being used has got a tint to it but not as bad as before.

    Maybe i will run a game on it and see what effect that has.

I'm not sure but I think this model uses an integrated graphics card which would then involve replacing the entire motherboard.

It may be that the screen backlight is getting old - they often age by showing a tint, usually it is pink but I have seen them go greenish.

Try an external monitor connected to the laptop via the VGA d connector. If the picture on the external monitor has a good colour balance then it is probably not a faulty graphics chip, and likely to be the laptop screen.

How do I get my icons on after computer has gone to sleep?


If you are using xp try going to control panel, change the desktop background to anything else in the offered menu, click apply. Then do the same thing again and select the background you normally use. That will sometimes get the icons back up.

Can see the desktop and icons, but have no control over them with mouse - can click and doubleclick, but to no avail.


I think someone played a practical joke on you. I bet one of your friends changed your desktop to look like it has icons and then hid the real icons.

Right click on your desktop, and then under the "View" menu item, make sure "Show Desktop Icons" is checked.

Also, right click on the desktop and select "Personalize", then at the bottom of the dialog, select "Choose Desktop Background" and change your desktop background.

I have n97 from china and i cant remove the shortcut icons on the menu. how can i delete them? i deleted all the items in the shortcut settings but it still appears in the stand by menu.


Hi, there are two desktop backgrounds on the China N97, one has the shortcut icons and the other one is a background without the icons, the shortcut icons on the first cannot be removed to the walk around for it is to press and hold the existing background and the dragging the finger to either the left or right of the screen, this should change the background and the shortcut icons must be gone.

To recover your desktop icons, right click on the background and select "Arrange Icons By" then just re-select the "Show Desktop Icons" option.
As for wireless setup, do you have your router properly configured? Follow the instructions in the router manual. Post back if you need more help along with the model of the router.
