The easiest way to change wallpaper/desktop background is open the picture/photo, right-click and "Set as desktop background".

You can do it from the personalize options available in display settings. Right-click on the desktop, select "personalize" and click "Desktop Background" from the available lists and browse the picture/photo you want to set as desktop background.

Dell Inspiron 1545 red processor:Pentium(R) Dual-core CPU T4400 @2.20GHz is error code 2000-0221, how to solve this problem?

this is a bios level error, you should still be able to run the system. this code is something you get when you hit F12 and run the diagnostics? or is this a blue screen error? you are probably going to need to boot to F2 (setup) then hit "Alt e" Alt F then Alt B the system will beep on the alt f but that's ok once this is done hit esc, save changes and reboot and see if you still get the error

My hard drive in my 1545 inspiron is shot. I am getting a code of 2000-0146, a harddrive error. should I reinststall the OS and start over or do I need to buy a new harddrive. I can't even run safe...

If you can get to your BIOS settings, change the hard drive settings from SATA to AHCI SATA and see if does anything for you. If not, then the hard drive needs to be replaced. Any 2.5" SATA drive will work. You will need to re install your OS, drivers, and all when or if a new drive is installed. If you have a back up CD it shouldn't be hard, but you are going to loose any data that you had saved.

My brother has a Dell Inspiron 1545, running Windows 7, that he got this past Christmas. It will no longer boot. I get past the Dell logo to a blank screen, but in the top left hand corner is a blinking...

Usually you would use the OS installation disk to get into restore mode (be careful, you don't want to accidentally delete everything by reinstalling the OS).

It should still be under warranty!!! So if I were you, and if you need a little hand holding, call Dell Customer support at 1-877-293-1197. Have your model number, serial code (usually somewhere on the bottom of the laptop), and setup disks for that computer handy before you call them.

They may walk you through a few procedures to try first before resorting to restore mode, but just be patient with them.

Hope this help you. Let me know how it turns out.

Go to and at the bottom of teh page select "Drivers & Downloads" under "Support".
Once in the support section select "Support for home users"
In the next page select laptops > Inspiron laptops > Inpsiron 1545
Then it will ask for an OS, select the windows 7 and when you find your driver it will give both 32 bit and 64 bit versions. This should fix your issue.
