Which version of Windows 7? If you have the Starter edition, then it doesn't support that feature. You would need to upgrade to one of the higher versions to get the personalization. See microsoft's site for more information:

I hope this helps.

Have you ever booted in win7? It may be a win 7 issue not a memory issue. Does it boot with the 2 512 MBs of memory. unplug, remove battery, install the 512 MBs memory, reboot.

I'm using acer aspire one happy with windows 7 starter edition and i can't change my background. what am i going to do?


You're stuck. If my memory serves me correctly, the starter edition does not have the functionality to change the background. It's a very slimed down version of Windows & and does not have all the bells and whistles.

I have a hp mini netbook loptop...i want to change the background using my picture...but it is not possible..plz advise me...thnks


Your netbook's Windows 7 Starter Edition does not allow changes of the desktop background. This feature begins with the next higher version of Windows 7 which is the Home Premium edition. It is possible to upgrade your version of Windows 7 to add more features by doing the following...
1. on the bottom left of the desktop, click the round windows start icon
2. on the pop-up window, click Control Panel
3. on the window titled Adjust your computer's settings, click the Windows Anytime Upgrade icon
4. on the Windows Anytime Upgrade window, your version of Windows 7 will be shown at top right
5. choose how you want to begin by clicking on either Go online... or Enter an upgrade key...

How can i change my desktop background in windows 7 starter on mini laptop n150 samsung


By default the Windows 7 Starter and Windows 7 Home Basic editions do not include the Personalization features such as change desktop background and Desktop Slideshow.

By default, the Windows 7 Home Basic edition will only allow you to change the desktop background by right clicking on a image and clicking on Set as desktop background.

There are applications on the web that let you change the background but they are not all free. One example is called Oceanis.

Why can't I change the background?


Is it Window 7 starter?? I won't allow you to change the background. It has many other limitations. You may want to consider buying more memory and an better OS.

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.

How do you change the background on a mini acer labtop with the new windows 7


If you have the Windows 7 "Starter Edition" or, on a select few subsidized netbooks (through cellphone carriers), you can not change the background.

Any other version of windows 7 can be changed by:
1) Right-click a blank area on the desktop
2) Select 'personlize' from the menu
3) Select 'Desktop Background' located in the lower left area of the Personalization window.
4) Select your background, hit 'Save changes'
