I've recently had a hard drive crash, so I purchased a new one and did a fresh install of Windows XP SP2 home edition on a Fujitsu C2220 laptop w/ P4 2.40 GHz, ATI Radion IGP340M.
After installation, I went to change the display settings and right clicking on the desktop wouldn't produce any display properties. I went to the control panel and double clicked the display icon and it doesn't produce any results at all either. I get a hour glass for about a half a seconded and then nothing.
I have downloaded and installed the latest drivers for the video adapter and I've even removed the video card from the device manager and reinstalled drivers, but it hasn't helped.
I have checked all registry entries pertaining to the display and I've found no restrictions.
I have ran sfc /scannow (system file checker), and it did ask me for the windows cd and it replaced a few files that didn't help my problem.
Since I'm running a ATI video card, I can change the resolution with catalyst control center, but I'm stuck without the normal options of Themes, Desktop, Screen Saver, Appearance, Settings.
Any help would be appreciated!
