1. Reseat your hard drive - unplug the ide cable from the motherboard and plug it again
2. Reseat the memory - remove and put it back again
3. Try to go to safe mode - while starting, press the F8 key to see the options
4. On the otherhand, you can select boot from the cd and use your Dell Diagnostic Utility and run hardware tests and see whats wrong..
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.
Somehow it looks you have set the photo as desktop background.
Assuming it to be XP.
To remove desktop background you can right click on open space on Desktop-> click on "Properties" -> click on tab Desktop, On background scroll to top and select none. and click "Apply" this will remove your photo from desktop.
When Windows doesn't restart it is usually because there is a process in the background that has not finished. Get into Task manager (Ctrl-Alt-Del) and close some of the processes with a manual "End Task". Suggestion 1.) Sort the processes by double-clicking the Process Title. 2.) End Task only the Processes in CAPITAL LETTERS. These are usually not system processes and are started by other programs. 3.) Try 1st closing all CAPITAL processes initially (make sure to wait a full 3 minutes to make sure processes have cleared) then try and shutdown. 4.) If successful, next time try to pin down the exact process holding up the system by closing down a few at a time and waiting, then shuting down.
Last observation: if this happen when shelling in Linux -- then above may not help-- in such case then remember that every time you restart your computer, the virtual machine that runs in background will close, so you'll have to open VMware Server Console and start the Windows machine before you can connect to it through the desktop shortcut.
Let us know if you still continue to have issues. Best Regards
You may have to boot from a CD and make a repair. Once logged in the CD, choose repair option (Recovery Console), and type these three commands: 1) fixmbr (wait til it finishes) 2) fixboot (wait...) 3) CHKDSK (this will take longer than the previous two. Your laptop may now boot normally. I think your laptop doesn't have an internal CD-ROM so you may use an external USB CD.
Hmm is there an error displayed or does it just boot like that? I would go into safe mode, by pressing F8 mutiple times at startup loading screen. In order for me to help you with the problem i need to know more about your computer. Go to START, then RUN. Type in "dxdiag". Save all that info to desktop then open with notebad or Word or something. Then copy and paste it on here.
The sequence is: a) The Dell bios splash screen is displayed, b) the screen will go black, c) the disk activity light will flash for about 5 - 7 seconds, then will remain off.
d) you force a power off, e) wait a few seconds, f) then turn the machine back on. g) The bios splash screen is displayed, h) then a black screen with white text is displayed, reporting that Windows was not shut down nicely and would I like to boot into safe mode or safe mode with networking, or others. g1) If you choose Safe Mode, Windows will boot up successfully. If I restart, the computer will usually (probably) boot into Windows fine. g2) If you choose Boot Normally, the computer will usually (probably) enter the black and hung state.
see if that helps and the if possible do a do a system restore to when the system was working correctly.
