Can anyone identify this PC Wallpaper


that's probably that your wallpaper isn't fit with your monitor resolution,for example,if your wallpaper size is 1280x1024 but your screen resolution (size) is 1024x768,it doesn't fit your screen and the wallpaper will only show half or even less
to check your current resolution,click
Start->Control Panel->click Appearance and Personalization->Click "adjust screen resolution" on the Display categories
you can see your current resolution and also you can set your resolution
To check the picture resolution,right click on the picture,select properties,click the Summary tab,and it doesn't show the resolution, click Advanced on the Summary tab
But I suggest you to download the wallpaper with a fit size instead of changing the screen resolution,because too high resolution will make your screen goes black
geez,i'm so sorry for my poor english
please rate this solution if it's work and let me know if you still has a problem.and thanks for using Fixya!

Icons appear on my wallpaper page that are of programs I wish to keep for reference, but do not want on my wallpaper


Open Explorer (right click on the start button), create a folder named Storage (or any name you like), then drag the icons into that folder.

Another method would be to right-click on the icon "send To" My Documents" or to a Compressed Folder.

My dell inspiron 1545 won't shut down went i click on the shut down icon it won't turn off .


Hold down the power button for 10 seconds. That will hard-shut the PC. Once that is done, fire it back up, and try again. Somethimes, windows will act goofy shutting down. Especially Vista when it is left on too long without shutting it down.

I think you will find, if you go to Power Settings, you will find your answer. It has been set for maximum system performance and minimum windows looks.
There is nothing wrong with the wallpaper, it is just removed to utilize maximum speed from the processing.
Hope this helps.

HP Pavilion - No. icons or start menu; only wallpaper


Try booting in safe mode (press F8 repeatedly while booting) A black screen should appera with several boot options. Choose boot in safe mode.

This should bring up a cut down version of windows.

Click on start - all programmes - accessories - system tools - system restore - choose a restore point date prior to your problems.

Now, there are a couple of different ways you may have lost your icons. They could have disappeared when you installed a certain program or even when you upgraded to a new operating system. To enable those icons and more, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Click on the Desktop tab and hit the Customize Desktop button. Next, under the General tab, check off any of the icons you want to appear on your desktop.
Once you do that, they will all be returned to your desktop in full view. You can choose from the icons of My Documents, My Computer, My Network Places and Internet Explorer. Now, on the other hand, you may want to take some of those icons off your desktop. If that's the case, just uncheck them and they will be out of your way.
