Shannon,

Right click on the desktop and select properties. On the "Theme" tab, choose Windows XP. On the "Desktop" tab, choose (None), at the top of the list. Press OK.

Does your desktop change? If so, a theme you were using was not compatible with your video. Try another theme.

If that doesn't work, reply to this message and we'll investigate further.

Dell D610 nothing but background image


Hi.

The laptop seems to have a problem with explorer not loading properly (this is the program which loads up the taskbar, icons etc)

Hold down Ctrl, Alt and press the delete key. Dependent on the operating system it will either go to list or load up Task Manager, ether way you need Task Manager.

When Task Manager loads up in the top left corner of the window you will see File, click on that and select New Task (run), click on that and in the box type explorer and click OK, The desktop should now load up.

After that make sure you perform a system restore by clicking on the start menu, accessories, system tools, system restore and take the laptop back to a time before this happened.




Regards.

I have a Dell Latitude D820. It is password


Try pressing control alt delete, which should start your task manager..

Then choose new task

type in explorer

If it pulls up a window, then what you need to do is a system restore..

If it does not pull up a window, then you will need to locate a xp install disk or one of your recovery disks and try a repair install

Cannot access anything on computer!!


Hi,

Maybe the explorer is not loading automatically. As you start Task Manager from Ctrl+Alt+Del, go to new task and run explorer.exe.

OR If it still doesn't solve the problem try and repair the XP installation if you have the XP CD

Mac mini desk top can not click


You can access your desktop as though it were any other folder and thus delete its contents however you'd care to.

In Finder, go to the File Menu > New Finder Window. It should automatically open your user folder and show Application, Desktop, Documents, etc. From there, simply open the Desktop folder and delete the files.
If any other window is opened, click on Mac HD > Users > [your user name here] > Desktop and do the same.

Desktop is not showing up. There is a window in place of the desktop.


You may activate your desktop again by right clicking your display, click Properties. When the desktop button shows up, choose a background then apply. If it still doesn't show up, you may need to reinstall your windows software.
