I was trying to run a programme which kept freezing on me; tech support advised that there was a known issue with netbooks and needed a minimum screen size 1024×768.
So I went into display settings and messed about, clicking on 1 and 2 and moving the slider about and have done something bad but not fatal.
On boot up, the XP “welcome” screen lasts a couple of seconds longer than it used to and when widows opens, it shows me my normal desktop picture; however after a couple of seconds I get a blue desktop – all my icons are there and thank god the machine still works, but what have I done?!!!
Any thoughts gratefully appreciated.
can you take a screenshot?
I would try reinstalling the display driver.
The latest versions of the manuals, drivers, software, and firmware can be downloaded from the SamsungPC website.
I’ve had this happen on my PCs at work & home. For me the problem was just losing my background image on the desktop. Try just right-clicking empty space on your desktop, select properties>desktop & then reselect your background wallpaper. At least I hope this is the problem you are having.
I don’t know why, but your suggestion worked, Dr Z.
Weird that just putting a picture back can make it speed up again!
Welcome to the world of Microsoft where weird is a common occurance (which by definition makes it not weird?)
