Long shot, but saw this on a website..

In Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition and Professional, the new Start menu is enabled by default. When the new Start menu is enabled, the My Computer, My Documents, and My Network Places icons are removed from the desktop.
Right-click the Desktop and click Properties.
Click the Desktop tab.
Click Customize Desktop.
Click the General tab, and then click the icons that you want to place on the desktop.
Click OK.

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 an HP Pavilion dv2000 and i dont know how to open webcam.


I have an HP Laptop with the webcam. Here is info on it.

There should be an icon on the desktop that you can double click to activate it. Then if it is activated the blue light will go on next to the webcam. If there is no icon do the following:

If the webcam icon is not on the desktop, click Start , click All Programs , select HP Pavilion Webcam to open the webcam from the Windows Start menu.
    • Select HP Pavilion Webcam Demo for a demonstration of the features.
    • Select HP Pavilion Webcam to open the webcam window and display an image from the webcam
  1. If the webcam icon is not on the desktop or on the Windows Start menu, click Start , and My Computer to open the My Computer window. The webcam should be listed under the Scanner and Cameras heading. Double click on the icon to open the webcam window and display an image from the webcam.
  2. If the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam is either disabled or the drivers are not installed.
Enable the webcam If the webcam icon is not displayed on either the desktop or the My Computer window, or cannot be started from the Windows Start menu, the webcam may be disabled. To enable the webcam, do the following actions.
  1. Click Start , right-click My Computer , and then select Properties .
  2. On the My Computer properties window, click on the Hardware tab, and then click Device Manager .
  3. Click on the plus ( + ) sign next to Imaging Devices and locate the webcam item in the device list.
  4. If the webcam is listed under Imaging Devices but there is a red X on the c00678428.gif icon, the webcam is disabled. To enable the webcam, right-click the HP WebCam 1000 icon and click Enable . The webcam icon should now display on the Desktop or the My Computer window.
  5. If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, you should install the original webcam drivers.
If you need the drivers see below.
  1. Install the original webcam drivers If the webcam is not listed in the Device Manager window, do the following activities to install the original webcam drivers using the HP System Recovery.
    1. Click Start , click All Programs , click System Recovery , and then click Application and Driver Recovery .
    2. On the Application and Driver Recovery window, select Driver installation and click Next .
    3. Select HP Pavilion Webcam from the list, and click Install .
    4. When prompted that the installation is complete, click OK .
    5. Allow the PC to restart and test the operation of the webcam.
    When the webcam is operating, visit to the HP web site to look for and install the latest updated webcam drivers. If the quality of the image is not acceptable, you can perform a functional diagnostic test of the webcam.

Yesterday, when I powered up my laptop, everything was all of a sudden enlarged ( the desktp, icons, internet, text, e-mails, EVERYTHING). I know this is probably supposed to be some kind of useful tool...


Hi,

Your enlarged desktop could be caused by several different things, so I will address each one in the order of likelihood of each one:

1. You may have accidentally changed your Display Settings.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. Scroll down and click on Display Settings. Ensure that your Monitor Resolution is set for the maximum. If not, use your mouse to move the slider bar all the way to the right.

2. You may have accidentally changed the size of text and icons.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down the screen, select Make the computer easier to see. Click on Change the size of text and icons about half way down the screen. If it is not selected, chose the default scale.

3. You may have accidentally turned on the Magnifier.

Right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down the screen, select Make the computer easier to see. About half way down the screen, uncheck the Turn on Magnifier.

To turn off the On-Screen Keyboard on start-up,
right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About half way down, select Use the computer without a mouse or keyboard. Unselect Use On-Screen Keyboard.

To turn off the Narrator on start-up, right-click on your desktop and select Personalize. In the bottom left-hand corner, select Ease of Access. About a third of the way down, select Use the computer without a display. Unselect Turn on Narrator.

I hope this helps. If so, please remember to rate my post.

Thanks!
