Tip

Changing folder background


do you want to change the folder background?
do the following steps:

1. Open Command Prompt and set folder attribute to "system". Suppose there is a folder "Setup" in "D:\" drive, in which you want to set a wallpaper as background image. So give following command in Command Prompt:
attrib +s D:\Setup
It'll change the attribute to "system ".
2. Now open Notepad and paste following code:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=path_of_the_wallpaper
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
Now change "path_of_the_wallpaper" to the exact path of the wallpaper which you want to set as background. Suppose the wallpaper is stored in "D:\Wallpaper\Image1.jpg", then the code will be as following:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=D:\Wallpaper\Image1.jpg
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
NOTE: If you copy the wallpaper in the same folder which you are editing, then you can simply put the wallpaper name in the file. e.g. if you copy the "Image1.jpg" file in "Setup" folder, then the code will be as following:
[ExtShellFolderViews]
{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC} = {BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}
[{BE098140-A513-11D0-A3A4-00C04FD706EC}]
Attributes=1
IconArea_Image=Image1.jpg
IconArea_Text=0x00000000
"IconArea_Text" stands for the text color, you can change it to white, yellow, blue, black or any other color. You just need to know the hexa-decimal number of the color and then replace the code in "IconArea_Text" section. A few most used color codes are as follows:
Black - 0x00000000
White - 0x00FFFFFF
Green - 0x0000FF00
Blue - 0x00FF0000
Purple - 0x00C000C0
Red - 0x000000FF
Yellow - 0x0000FFFF
Indigo - 0x00FFFF00
3. Now save the file with name "Desktop.ini" (including quotes) and copy the file in the desired folder which is "Setup" in our example.
4. Thats it. Close the folder and re-open it. Now it should show the wallpaper as background.

Dell self test feature test has appeared on monitor screen with bold red,blue,yellow ,white all in one box which slowly wanders around monitor screen .how do i get rid of this to able me to use it


You'll need to press a button on the monitor, an icon that looks like a box with an arrow in it, press that an it should bring you back the normal desktop,
but if it still doesn't come on make sure that the monitor is properly plugged in the tower.

Hope this helps!

I need the color codes, and more importantly, the polarities of the tips that come with universal notebook power supplies. Thanks for any help.


Depends on the brands you are looking at.
The most common are these:

As Far as I know, the notebook PSU's follow the same industry standard colour coding as a regular ATX PSU.


(numbers expressed as V)
Blue -12
Red +5
Orange +3.3
Grey Power good signal
Green Power switch
Purple Stand by power
White -5
Black Ground
Yellow +12

Dell flat screen goes white and colored block appears and floats


Check that your monitor is connected properly and tightly to the computer. If it is, then the monitor may be bad. Borrow a friend's monitor and try to see if it works, if someone else's monitor works, then replace your monitor.

Monitor Problems


1. check the monitor on other PC if the problem is same that means the VGA cord or the Pins have gone faulty.

2. Just bend and cable and keep monitoring the display where it stablises to normal, and tie thw cacle at that point with something.

Display shows only blues and yellows


Actually, if you have not noticed, electrical things tend to act weird during thunder and lightning storms(power outage?) For instance, my little sister has a bear with a voice box that sits right up against her wall and when ever theres a thunder storm it goes off. (Scare me to death ;) ) But perhaps something like this happened to either the PC or the monitor. OR Does is the monitor tinted yellow, blue, etc...? Because that is a connection problem try screwing the cable from the PC air dusting the port and the end of the cable and making sure it id firmly screwed back in.
