The experts are going to want to know what you are running. XP or ME or what?

Also do you get any messages when it boots?

Assuming of course that you have tried the Right Click on Desktop Select Properties
and check the Settingtab to make changes.

Sounds like a driver problem but you need someone with more expertise and you need to give them more information.

Do you know what type of graphic card you have? If you do, you can download the driver and reinstall them.

After hours and hours of researching this, i've come to the conclusion that i'll just back up all my files and re-install my os. there might be an easier way but i can't spend anymore time on this because i have to work...
thanx for all your support.

JeffCramer43-Knowling the OS version would be a great help. It was already mentioned, but it needed to be said again. Re-installing the OS to fix this is a little overboard.

Bluie-I love your colorful messages. It warms my heart to see them. :thumbsup:
