When I go to my network connections and attempt to display the properties of my dial up modem properties(my default internet connection with MSN)...so that I can enable the firewall...nothing happens. Nothing. The computer doesn't hang, no error message pops up. It just doesn't respond. I have tried several times with this problem. Microsoft had me uninstall all of my network connections and then reinstall to see if that changed anything...but nothing. I had this issue once before but can't remember what I did to correct it.
I'm running Win XP on an AMD 850 Athlon PC Clone with 512MB RAM, with a 100GB HD.
If anyone has encountered this or can offer any help I'd be very grateful.
I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.
I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.
You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Dial up networks are a strange breed. But connection speeds aren't what you're looking for. In fact, you want to know what bandwidth you have. I've seen 28k connection with a good solid bandwidth. Check your numbers and find the one that gives you the best return. I don't know of any automated scripts like that, but some programmers here might be able to help. Keep in mind, that when you hit a jump station your connection drops, and your overall connection speed is decided by the weakest link between you and your telephone number you're calling. So changing numbers changes the direction of your signal. I hope a programmer jumps in and has an automated solution for you.

My Dell Insipron 6400 laptop will not support multiple monitors. I think I may not have a key driver installed. Help!!
I have attached two separate images, screen shot of my device manager and display properties and a screen shot of the same image on my mothers PC. (which is also a Dell Inspiron 6400)
On my PC, In my device manager I can not view the display adapters (there must be something installed and I do not have visiblilty?? correct??)
Also, on my display properties I do not even have the option for Multiple monitor support. (these are the same PC's)
I inserted my Drivers and Utilities CD from Dell, but I did not see any driver on there that was applicable to a display adapter.
Am I on the right track???
My dial- up connection does not appear in the network connections window. I am trying to disable the firewall in Windows XP to play an online video game.
Strange Strange Strange.
I have an HP desktop here and the internet works fine on broadband.
When I set it to Dial up it will not display a webpage.
I have done IE repairs, winsock fixes, replaced the modem, ran hijack this, malwarebytes, lsp fix, sfc /scannow and still web page will not display.
I even installed firefox and got same resuts.
If anyone can help it would be greatly appreciated
When you use dial up are you connected to the net? Run a ping test to google via name then ip address
So in a command prompt type in: ping google.com then do the same via ip ping 18.104.22.168
What did it return?
On the monitor display properties,
800x600 pixels,higest 32 bit.
DISPLAY is at
Plug & Play monitor on NVIDIA GeForce
Now lately on start up Im getting
640x480 with lowest 4 bit.
I try to correct this by changing the properties back to the proper settings.
That doesnt seems to work,its still there.
I use the "GoBack" feature and reboot and its now corrected.
Sometimes for days or weeks it stays corrected but this AM it started at
highest 32 bit
I use the trouble shooting in that Display area but its not helping at all.
The monitor is a Dell flat screen 19"
Try and re-installing your video card driver or checking to see if there is a update driver for it on the manufactures site.
I would like to change the background on my desktop. A long time ago I was able to do this. Now I can't. When i open the display box and try to click on a back ground option or browse it won't let me. The box with all of the options in it is grayed out. I used to be able to go online and set the picture I wanted as my background but now it won't even do that. Could my digital camera software be causing this problem. it is a Kodak Easy share. If it isn't what could the problem be? I have already checked to make sure that I have administrative care. Please help, I get tired of looking at a solid background.

Try this registry edit (backup your registry before doing this!!!) Go to http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/xp_tweaks.htmScroll down to #285The first item in the right hand column will say "Restore All Display Tabs"Right click on it and select "Save Target As" or "Save Link As" Save it to and ensure it has the .reg extensionThen double click on it and answer Yes when it asks you for permission to merge it into your registry.Then see if it has worked. If not, then reboot the system to see if it'll work then.Here's a direct link to the page with the code:http://www.kellys-korner-xp.com/regs_edits...displaytabs.reghttp://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/171013/no-display-properties-at-all/
Display properties will not hold. Every time I start up or reboot I have to go int Display Properties to reset to the Theme I saved my settings in.
For some reason best known to Bill, my display properties function has "lost' its "Desktop", Screen Saver", "Appearance" and "Settings" tabs. All I get is the "Themes" tab.
Run the attached reg file, and restart (unzip first)
Test and reply back if it worked (I'd say Yes)
I have just noticed this today and have never had any problem with this before nor have I ever heard of this happening before but when I open my Display Properties and move to the Desktop tab and choose Browse to choose a picture to set as my background after I have selected Open and the box closes the Apply button is unavailable and the image I chose does not appear in my list or in the preview I ve also taken notice that certain images that were once in the list of available backgrounds images such as Ascent Autumn and Azul no longer appear to be available Right clicking on an image and choosing Set as desktop background does not work and neither does choosing the same option from the Picture Tasks Does anybody have any idea what Display Properties has happened and how I can restore whatever settings I may have changed without applying a system restore Thanks in advance nbsp

Dell XPS 410, Win XP Pro. I did a repair install. Every thing appear normal except: I can not change my desktop backgroungfrom bliss to anything. The Background, Browse, and Position buttons are very light gray, the color and customize desktop work ok. The background pictures titles look OK, but no response when I try to change. I checked GPEdit, everything is "not configured", I tried changing the prevent changing wallpaper setting but did work. Is there way that I can correct this problem without doing a complete reinstall of win XP?
This is probably a very stupid problem...
Basically, I tried to show my parents some photos on the TV through my laptop ( Toshiba Qosmio G10 - Win XP MCE 2005).
And it worked.
But the resolution was too fine, so I decided to tinker with the settings n both display properties and on the GeForce's own utility. (Graphics: Nvidia GeForce FX Go5700) Then the image on the TV just fanished after I pressed one setting or another. Is there anyway, to reset the properties on Display Properties or the Nvidia Utililty.
That way, (as a student) I can still continue to use my laptop for my presentations at uni.
Any help is greatly appreciated,
I don't think there is a restore default button for display properties through windows. If you go to NVidia propeties there may be one. Another option is to go into the hardware manager and uninstal the video card. Reboot and reinstall.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/display-properties-96849.html
my pc power sutdown value was entered at 5 minutes in display properties and applied, yet the moniter will not shutdown. please advise
The desktop has to be untouched for 5 minutes more than only the monitor will turn off Means it will give no display but physically your monitor will be turned on. Depends on the settings of your monitor it will go to standby but won't turn off your monitor. In order to turn off your monitor you have to phsically switch off the monitor.
This function is to save the power only. When the screen is idle for a long time (5 minutes) it will go to standby.
Yesterday computer was fine. Today it has the display set at 4 bit and the lowest setting. I've tried rebooting, disconnecting the monitor, unplugging the power, changing the display to 32bit (which just resets itself to 4bit), running antivirus, doing troubleshooting etc. Nothing is working. It is still 4 bit. Any ideas?
Open device manager, I'm sure there should be one yellow warning sign next to your display adapter. You need to install your graphics drivers.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/display-properties-259663.html

Am having a problem with Display Properties in WinXP-2. During the first 5 minutes after boot-up, screen resolution on my desk top is unstable with icon and window sizes changing from large to small and vice-versa. Resetting the Display Properties during this time has no effect. When the system warms up the problem is gone. Can the Monitor itself be the problem, or is it most likely the Video Card ? I don't have another monitor to use as a test unit. Please advise. Thk-U
Try re-seating the Video card if it is not intergrated one....and blow out the slot
Can't change the display properties
Hi and welcome to TSF.
Could you explain a bit more what you mean and what you are trying to do?
Is there a way I can save pictures in the desktop tab in "Display Properties"?
Are you talking about the Wallpaper (desktop background)?
If so, then yes, I believe there are two folders where you can place them:
My Documents\My Pictures
If you save it in the Windows folder then the pictures have to be saved in .bmp format
If you save it in the My Pictures folder then it can be saved as either .jpg or .bmp format
when i re-installed windows xp i noticed the color was not correct so i went under display properties and saw the color quality was 4 bit instead of 32 i also could not move the screen resolution arrow and the screen and its contents are large so i can't make them smaller what happened and how can i fix it i looked at driver tab it states this driver is working properly
When you reinstall XP it begins using a generic driver that ships with XP. You will need to determine what type of graphics card you have in your system, go to that manufacturers website and download the appropriate driver.http://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f10/display-properties-388352.html
When I click on the desktop icon I do not get "display properties ", in the box,
only "properties". I need to adjust my screen resolution. How can I fix this?
Change your screen resolutionhttp://www.techsupportforum.com/forums/f217/display-properties-647564.html
I am running XP Home, SP2, all updates complete.
In display properties, I have themes set to Windows XP. Under Windows and Buttons I only have the Windows Classic style available. This changed only since latest Windows Update (yesterday). Tried to restore to earlier date, no results. Any help appreciated. Thanks in advance.
Tried to restore to earlier date, no results.You mean you did a System restore?http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/27616/display-properties/
what should my settings be i am running windows xp they are set to 800/600 32 bit. is this ok or can i do better for loading the computer
It depends on how much stuff you want to see at a time and the resolution the monitor you have can support I'd recommend 1024X768 16/32 bit color.
If you wanted it faster change the 32 to 16 bit it will not be noticeable but it will probably run a very very small fraction of a second faster.
If your using an older monitor from about anywhere from '98 back to when VGA was first made then the current resolution is good for you.
I clicked on display-properties-settings and switched from plug and play to default. I also checked the box that says use this device as the primary monitor and then clicked on apply and now its black , i can see the start button on bottom of screen and rebooted three times, i disconnected the monitor cable and tried to connect to different output on video cards no luck, i have no use of the mouse now after second reboot and cant get to system restore to back up a day and erase this foolish error. I hope someone has an idea of what i should try next,,my system has dual video cards and is only a month old i was just fooling around like an idiot and now im stuck>>.?
I have a dual monitor setup on my Windows XP. To replace a monitor, I moved everything to 1 monitor and checked it as the primary monitor and unchecked "extend my desktop" for both monitors. The second monitor went black - as expected.
I replaced the monitor and now want to switch back to my dual monitor mode. However, when I right-click>properties, the display properties are not displaying on my primary monitor.
How do I get them onto the viewing monitor if I can't see it?
If you give us the specs of your syst. video card and such. some one might be able to help you. I use a NVIDIA video card, I can go to the Control Panel, and Display Settings then, Advanced, then to my video card, and set it there but it will be different in different video cards.

That appears to a driver install issue. That could be caused by a defect in the drive itself.
Have you tried going into the Device Manager and removing or disabling what you have, then rebooting and trying a new install... or going back to the previous driver on their website?

Any idea to solve it?
I first noticed that I lost my display properties a while ago and it didn't really botehr me until I played a DVD and it alterered my resolution and it didn't return back.
I recently used your advice to rid my computer of PSGUARD, using the simtrem download and it was finally removed permantly.
However now I noticed that the Start screen, toolbar and control panel windows that used to appear blue are now white. An since I cant get into my display properties I cant change these back either.
I cant help but think this was caused by something removed when removing the PSGUARD in the registry. How can I restore my Windows XP to the normal settings and be able to change them as before?
When I right click my desktop and go to properties nothing will display. The mouse cursor changes to loading for a split second and then nothing happens. The same problems occurs when I go through the control panel. I have AVG anti-virus, McAfee Personal Firewall, ad-aware, and xoftspySE installed and updated. I can still use the nvidia control panel to change some settings, but I would like to fix this issue. I have tried using older display drivers, but nothing changed. Any help would be great.

I have color problems.
Windows 98 Second Edition 64.0MB Ram
Display: 800x600 pixels / High Color 16-Bit
Plug and Play Monitor on 3dfx Voodoo3 with Dx7.0 Support
When attempting to change my FONT COLORS in AIM (Aol Instant Messenger--for chat or composing emails, etc) and I click on the Font Color and my BASIC FONT colors pop up. When I chose a color that appears on my BASIC colors box, then apply, the actual color is NOT the same as the color I've chosen once I apply it.
The colors are fine when I apply them to my Display Properties Appearance tab.
For example in AOL, when I click on a pink color box, it shows up as a dark purple or brownish color. Orange shows up as a yellow-ish color, very hard to read.
Any advice on how to fix this? Thank you!
The thing about AOL is that it's not Windows friendly. There has always been problems with the two.
The only suggestion I can think of is update the drivers for the Video card and get the latest version of AOL IM.
As you might know 3DFX is no longer around. NVIDIA took control of the company. You may find drivers at www.3dfx.com but you will more likely find them at www.nvidia.com.
If it's AIM that has the problem only, then I suggest updating or re-installing.
what do I need to do?
the screen blackens then defaults to low or med.
I go into the settings to restore to high.
I scanned for viruses-none.
do not know why this happens.
by low or med i am guessing your color depth?
256=low 16-bit=med 32bit=high?
or are you talking about the resolution?
what kind of video card do you have?
how old is it?
how recently have you updated the drivers for it?
how recently have you updated directx?
Well this is my first post here so thanks in advance for those who help me out. My girl is having problems with changing her Display Properties. First the PIXELS wont change and it doesnt let her change them. I think it may have to do with the drivers or maybe she needs a new graphics card. Id appreciate some advice, Thank You.
Hi and welcome
Yes, it does sound like her drivers. She could try reinstalling them, or checking the manufacturer's website for possible updated drivers for her video card.
i restarted my computer and now it will not let me change my settings from 640 x 480 pixels screen resolution. it will also not let me change out of 4 bit color quality

What Video card are you using, and you just rebooted your PC and this happened? Also when you try and make the change will it not let you make the selection or will it let you and nothing happens?
when i go into display properties desktop i'm not able to change the back ground picture. i understand it may be a spy ware problem. how can i fix this issue. i have gone to the currentversion/system file and all i see is (Default) Reg_SZ (value not set)
Is anything greyed-out in the Background area of Display Properties? Is the position set to stretch, center or tiled?
Do you have Anti-virus/Anti-spyware applications installed? I would scan with these, but before scanning make sure you have updated them. BTW, please give us your computer specifications (e.g. make/model of mobo, cpu, ram, etc.) be as precise as possible. DO NOT try fixing anything in the Registry unless you have experience in this area, you could wind up with greater problems than you're experiencing now.
Awhile back when my computer was going cuckoo ( i think because my daughter went on that stupid kazaa infectious website!!!) Somehow pictures from a folder that had nothing to do with screensavers or wallpaper suddenly appeared as choices. Well i couldnt figure out how they got into that d.p. tab much less delete them but somehow i stumbled across a way to disable so no one could change it. well needless to say can't figure out how to enable it and was wondering how to fix it. Please help you guys are great!!!!
Closing duplicate, please reply here:
when i open my display properties, i don't see any tabs at the top..how could this be?
Run this program:
Look under the display options and uncheck all the things that are checked. If they are not checked, "toggle" them (that is, check them, close the program, open the program, uncheck them, and then close the program).
If this happened out of the blue without your changing any security settings deliberately, you probably have malware. Post a HijackThis log in the Security forum.
Hi there, i have an xp machine and remember having more options in display properties. i now only have 'Screen Saver' and 'settings' tabs when i know i used to have more like desktop background - i dont know if this is because i cleared my machine a while ago and deleted some stuff accidetly or whether it was i virus i had before that all i know is that and my desktop items are no longer there (don't know if its linked but dont use desktop items anyway). Any help is much appreciated
Your display settings are determined by your video card and the card drivers.
Perhaps you could tell us what card you are using and the driver version?
I've tried to get my display properties open through every means i know. And the best the computer will do is change the cursor to the thinking symbol before stopping again!
Apologies if this has been posted before but it's driving me crazy and I can't see it anywhere else.
I've tried turning my firewalls off.
Stopping all timed tasks.
Pressing Ctrl whilst clicking the display logo.
Checking for viruses and spyware again and again.
Anybody experienced this or knows how to fix it that would be fantastic.
If it helps any I don't remember it happening before I installed SP2.
Perhaps there are known issues with this?
I have just run MalwareBytes for the first time, and it came up with one warning, Hijack.DisplayProperties (screenshot below).
I wanted to check what it meant before blindly removing it. After some searches, the only information I could find was that it was somehow related to 64-bit Windows Vista.
Is this correct, and/or is it anything to worry about. The PC is running Windows 7 Home Premium 64.
It's nothing to worry about. Just a simple registry edit from a 1 to a zero, you can go ahead and change it yourself from the specified reg key manually, or let mbam do it by "remove it". Just a false positive with mbam.http://www.sevenforums.com/system-security/46826-hijack-display-properties.html

I run Windows XP Home on my laptop. I have my computers display properties->Appearanceset to Windows Classic Style for better performance. Well, one day I turn my computer on, and the taskbar looks like it was set to the Windows XP Style of display (you know, looks nicer, shiny). Now, the last thing I did before I had shut the computer down before this was install an old copy of Microsoft Word 97. The appearance change did not affect anything, I just switched it back, but it is a little wierd for something like that to happen without me physically changing the settings I think. I am the only person who uses this computer so can someone tell me:
1. How could the setting of changed by itself?
2. Could this be linked to a big problem, or was it some kind of glitch?
Thank you in advance for any help you can provide.
The installation of Word 97 would have changed some of your registry entries..
And, it may, or may not affect it. But, since this is still recent, then, try a couple of
experiments. Uninstall it (Word 97) and see if that changes things. If not, do a system restore to before you installed it. Might narrow down this as the problem..
And, it could be a glitch...I've seen power fluctuations change computers..
This is odd but it's not the first time I've seen this: Under Display Properties, Appearance, when I open the drop down menu for Windows and Buttons, there is no choice for Windows XP—only Classic. And I prefer XP. Do you think someone deleted these files or what?
I just ran a search for .theme files and XP is not on the machine—only Classic and modified themes if that tells anyone anything helpful.

My first time here and I need help!
I checked the "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" box in display properties under settings tab.
The next time I rebooted everything disappeared, and the screen went blank.
I rebooted again into VGA mode, and was able to log in.
Now the box where I checked "extend my windows desktop onto this monitor" is gone.
I want to uncheck it, so that I can have normal logins again.
I went into Control Panel/Display/Settings and I couldn't find the option again.
My resolution is now set at 640 x 480 with 8 bit color quality and everytime i try to change it my screen goes blank!
Do you have any ideas?

You can use group Policy to take care of that. go to your run line and type in "gpedit.msc" you should be able to take it from there. If you have quesiton drop me a line.
When restarting my PC my monitor wouldn't always start up again. I finally got fed up, took it in to a shop, video card was defective. I had it replaced with a Celestica Radeon 9200. They called me from the shop, said the computer was ready, but that the display was all messed up. I didn't think it'd be that big of a deal to fix, so I took it home. The resolution options are available as a tray icon so that was no problem. But, when I go into display properties, I have no tabs - no desktop, screensaver, bappearance, or settings - all I have is themes. Is this because my old video card messed up Windows (XP Pro)? Everything else seems to be running properly. No viruses, adware or spyware. Is there a registry edit to get these tabs back?
When I right click on the screen and select "Properties" I only get the theme option.
All my tabs have disappeared. I went to Kellys Corner and downloaded the reg file to display all tabs, but still nothing.
I can't change my screen saver or background or any properties.
Any ideas on how to get the tabs back?

Ever any answer on this? I am having the same problem.
I have a problem. For some reason I have no desktop options. I go to display properties,desktop.........and for some reason all my options are highlighted in grey and I cant select any of them. Anyone have any idea why that is? I cant put a backround wallpaper or anything.
And I have already downloaded spyware doctor and spybot. Ran both and removed a couple trojans. I now have my previous backround back both there is still no options in the display menu, there is no way to change the wallpaper. Here is a screenshot so you can see what im talking about.
I would suggest stating here and let one of the gold shields help you thru this. Since you removed one or two infections there may be others and any one or more of them could cause this problem.

Hello fellow tech-heads,
When I right click on any folder to try to get the properties, nothing will happen. The explorer title bar will grey out as if it becomes a part of the background, but there is no foreground properties window. I can get the properties on any individual file without any problem. Consiquently, I can't get the properties when I right-click on my hard drive to get to the tools so I can run chkdsk. I'm running an anti-virus program (Norton) and I have the most recent updates. I cleaned out the registtry using "Registry Medic", and yes, I know that it probably caused the problem, but the system runs perfectly with the exception of this one problem.
Does it work here:
Windows explorer > File > Properties
Hi guys! I have just removed a variety of Spy/Malware and Virus's from a PC running XP. However I have a lingering problem. The Display properties has the desktop tab missing, also when the computer starts the only desktop I get, is like an "open windows explorer window" ! Thats what the desktop is displayed like, but you can still see the desktop icons. It is strange, but I have seen it before and managed to get ride of this by using Combofix and Smitraudfix. I tried these programs again , however no joy !
Any suggestions would be greatly appriciated!
Please download Malwarebytes Anti-Malware and save it to your desktop.Make sure you are connected to the Internet.Double-click on mbam-setup.exe to install the application.When the installation begins, follow the prompts and do not make any changes to default settings.When installation has finished, make sure you leave both of these checked:Update Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareLaunch Malwarebytes' Anti-MalwareThen click Finish.MBAM will automatically start and you will be asked to update the program before performing a scan. If an update is found, the program will automatically update itself. Press the OK button to close that box and continue. If you encounter any problems while downloading the updates, manually download them from here and just double-click on mbam-rules.exe to install.On the Scanner tab:Make sure the "Perform Quick Scan" option is selected.Then click on the Scan button.If asked to select the drives to scan, leave all the drives selected and click on the Start Scan button.The scan will begin and "Scan in progress" will show at the top. It may take some time to complete so please be patient.When the scan is finished, a message box will say "The scan completed successfully. Click 'Show Results' to display all objects found".Click OK to close the message box and continue with the removal process.Back at the main Scanner screen, click on the Show Results button to see a list of any malware that was found.Make sure that everything is checked, and click Remove Selected.When removal is completed, a log report will open in Notepad.The log is automatically saved and can be viewed by clicking the Logs tab in MBAM.Copy and paste the contents of that report in your next reply and exit MBAM.Note: If MBAM encounters a file that is difficult to remove, you may be asked to reboot your computer so it can proceed with the disinfection process. Regardless if prompted to restart the computer or not, please do so immediately. Failure to reboot normally (not into safe mode) will prevent MBAM from removing all the malware. MBAM may make changes to your registry as part of its disinfection routine. If you're using other security programs that detect registry changes, they may alert you after scanning with MBAM. Please permit the program to allow the changes.http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/t/176783/hijacked-display-properties/
Anyone have a guess Ben helped me rule out ATI properties display missing software Hi When I select Display from the control panel menu or when I right click on the desktop and select Properties nothing happens more precisely I sometimes see an instantaneous flash as it tries to create a window of some sort which is immediately removed I can adjust the screen resolution using the Catalyst control center GUI but the standard Microsoft options to control Wallpaper screen savers themes etc are absent from that GUI display properties missing I am currently running without the Catalyst control center only the driver Problem does NOT occur in Safe Mode Machine Windows XP-Pro SP nearly up to date on Windows updates ATI GPU with latest - driver Much debugging as been related to the Catalyst control center but display properties missing the problem persists even after removing the display driver all catalyst software and running Driver Cleaner run in safe mode and rebooting using default VGA driver Problem is present in a brand new admin user account as well I have also removed all startup programs except maybe the mouse using various startup utilities as well as editing RUN portions in the Registry This machine has never had a malicious malware attack so far as I am aware I don t know when this started but I noticed the inability to set my wallpaper when I recently tried a screen saver program which left me with a blue desktop background Google-ing the problem finds many identical complaints but none of the associated fixes address my problem such as registry display properties missing entries relating to disabling display option tabs or disabling control panel features such as addressed by some of Kelly s Korner register scripts and others Probably unrelated but when I let Windows Update load of the most recent security updates I m mostly up to date one of them kills Internet Explorer which kills Windows Update so I had to do a restore This is potentially a much bigger concern than the missing display GUI Any suggestions will be most appreciated -bob nbsphttps://forums.techguy.org/threads/display-properties-missing.940258/
When I go to display properties and try to change my background, every single picture on my computer is shown as an option. How do I go back to normal? I just want to see the default backgrounds. Thank you so much for your help.
For the Display Properties Background tab, Windows XP fetches the image files from the following locations:
BMP Files from %Systemroot% folder.
BMP, JPG, GIF, JPE, DIB, PNG, HTM files from the following locations:
* %USERPROFILE%\My Documents\My Pictures (& sub-folders)
* %AppData%\Microsoft\Internet Explorer
* %ProgramFiles%\Plus!\Themes (& sub-folders)
If you want to clear a file from the background tab listing, move the file away from the above mentioned locations. To access each of the folders above, type the Path in Start-Run dialog.
* %Systemroot% represents the folder where Windows is installed.
* %USERPROFILE% represents the user profile home path
* %AppData% represents the Application Data folder path
* %ProgramFiles% represents the Program Files folder
I'm having an issue with my display properties. Every time I try to change my background color (because I have a photo in the center) to black I click apply, and Windows does its little fade to black and white and then after it applies the color my display properties box stops responding. It just becomes a blank white box that I can close, but that's it. The background color will stay black until my computer goes to screen saver and I unlock it. Then it reverts to the old navy blue color. Any ideas why my display properties stops responding?

I have beat my head against a wall with this problem for three days now and I'm sincerely hoping someone here has run into it before and knows how to fix it.
In display properties there are absolutely no tabs.
The computer has XP with a Nvidia geforce4 mx 440 vid card.
-I have installed the newest driver and an older one, neither fix it.
-The tabs do appear in safe mode
-I have reinstalled SP1a
-I removed all spyware
-I have scanned for viruses
-I have disabled abolutely everything on startup
-I did find one mskb article that referrer to a similar problem after upgrading from 98 to xp but this came with xp and the article didn't have all the tabs missing.
OK I'm a picture junkie. I love to take pictures and then put them on my computer. But if I scan the picture and then put it in the My Pictures Folder, the pictures appear in the Display Properties. Now theres a lot of pictures in there and it gets kinda annoying cuz i dont really want any of those pictures for my desktop. Is there a way i can turn that off?
In the My Pictures folder, click View. Then select one of the other choices other than thumbnails (like list or details).
Hope this is what you mean.
I am totally stumped on this.
When I right click my desktop and go down to properties nothing happens and the same thing when I try in the control panel.
I have cleaned the registry and also ran 4 spyware apps but still no joy!
I really need this asap as I have an important test coming up and the software I need to study with says that I need to change to font sizes for it to run!
Help would be gratefully recvd!
for quite some time the tabs in the display properties menu have been missing. All I can see when I open it are the theme options and the preview. I can't remember changing anything recently that could have influenced this. Any ideas?
Thanks a lot!
I just purchased an IBM PII 400, all works great except for the display properties for my monitor, I am only able to choose from 2 or 16 colors and am stuck on 640 by 480 pixels.....When I was using this monitor before I was able to adjust these settings, what need I do now to fix this problem
Hello Kitty and welcome to TSG!
That is a common problem. What you need to do is reinstall the video driver; it's not your monitor that is at fault. You will have to find out the make and model of you video card.
I've got a Dell 17" LCD monitor (model: E173FP) and a question.
I need to fix the driver since I just reformatted; however, I can't edit a particular setting.
Follow me on this part: [right-click desktop] and select "Properties" => "Settings" => "Advanced" => "Monitor".
I need to get to the "Properties" screen, which is where the "Drivers" options are. Unfortunately, the entire "Properties" screen is grayed out, so I can't click "Properties" or change the Monitor Settings like the Hertz rate.
What is the work around for this?
Oh yeah, Dell said I have to pay them $50 if I want them to fix it. Noooooo!

Have you reinstalled all drivers (Chipset,Graphics,Audio,etc) after reinstalling Windows?
Look in Device Manager and make sure that there is no yellow ?'s or !'s listed.
If you have all drivers installed you can download the driver for your monitor from the Dell site.
I am trying help a friend out with his computer,under display properties his daughter put in a picture and now it will not alow any changes to the desktop (everything is greyed out) any ideas?
Click Start > Run > type regedit
In the right-pane, delete the Values Wallpaper and Wallpaperstyle, if they exist.
Restart the computer.
Hello. I am mirkdddlhppr, and this is my first time here at TechGuy.
I need help badly. Whenever I go the Display Properties from Control Panel, and attempt to click Advanced (under Settings) to change the Hardware Acceleration, I get this error:
An exception occurred while trying to run
Because of this unfortunate error, I cannot access the option to change the Hardware Acceleration, and thus am unable to play games. Help is greatly appreciated!
