Applying A background to my desktop



I have problems applying a background to my desktop. If I open the display
properties and select the wallpaper tab it opens but I am unable to choose
any of the available wallpapers. I can only change the colour of the
background. It also doesn't work when I right click on an image and click
apply as desktop backgound.

Any help will be appreciated please!!!




I am having the same problem. One day, my background picture was gone;
however, I do see it for a second while the computer is booting up. Then it
disappears and goes back to the bllue screen. The background options box is
somehow disabled.

Well this makes three! This morning I turned the computer on and the same
exact thing happened here. When the system is powering up I can see my
background wallpaper when it finishes the power up cycle the background turns
blue. I go to the control panel and display tool and try to correct the issue
but the scroll box does not work. I can see my many wallpapers just can't
select them, it is like the mouse does not know it is in a scroll box. The
mouse pointer does not change to the select pointer. I can change colors just
not wallpaper. Hope someone is listening! Seems to just happened!

i also have the same problem. My desktop background image seems to be stuck
or something. I can't change it at all. If I open the display properties I'm
not able to see the wallpaper tab. I need help because this is annoying, I'm
stuck with a blurry pic as my background. Greatly appreciated if anyone can
help me out, (e-mail address removed). You can e-mail or reply here so I can solve
this problem.

Contacted lenovo and fry's - will not send disks. Lenova has said the
following: "We don't include nor do we send the disks due the fact
that it would be too expensive on our part with the manufacturing
that we provide. Frys: "We do not lend nor rent out p.c. software due
to the fact of piracy, and the individual sales needed from the
software companies. Each computer is different, as is the software.
If you need a piece of software you can buy it from our store or
online at (and they continue to read off the website name)."

As for the model number or type of lenovo I'm running - I really
couldn't tell you since it's not printed on the computer nor the box
it came with. I have seen the same computer advertised by
tigerdirect. In fact for less than what my father paid for this

Either way - just spending the 120.00 dollars on thursday (today) to
get Vista and re-installing the O.S. then creating a safe back-up

My understanding is that you should have been provided with means for
reinstalling your OS, be it on disc or by a special partition on your hard
drive. If I were you, I'd pursue that angle more vigorously before forking
out more money.
