It sounds like you might be running Windows 7 Basic. If you are it does not let you change to many things, you have a limited version of Windows 7

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.

How to change background desktop for acer aspire one(notebook)

I am assuming you have Microsoft Windows installed on this machine. To change the desktop background, right-click on the desktop and click either "Properties" or "Personalize". A window will pop up showing the current settings, including the current desktop background. To change it locate the picture you want to change it to, then click "apply". Go back to the desktop to confirm the change has been made.
If the picture you would like to use is on the internet, you can right-click on the picture and select "set as background".
Hope this helps!

It depends on what operating system you're using. The quickest way if you're using windows, is to right click on your desktop(not on an icon) and then going to properties(if using xp) and Personalize(if using vista or 7) then click on change background image.
