I have a samsung n210 netbook with windows 7 when i first got it I used the windows 7 speed up tips to disable certain things.

Now I have a basic black screen how can I get the blue windows 7 screen back.

How can I restore windows 7 back to the original settings?

Thanks

You may have disabled effects. To re-enabled them, open start menu, right click Computer and click Croperties. Click on Advanced system settings on the left then on the Advanced tab, under Performance, click on Settings. Under Visual effets, select Adjust for best appearance and click OK. If it don't resolve your issue, right click on your Desktop and Personalize. Under Aero Theme select Windows 7. You may have to reboot your computer for the change to take effect. If you messed with Services, you may also need to re-enabled the Theme service with the services.msc command in the start menu.

Computer boots up and runs as normal. Just the appearance looks really old I can't remember what I turned off.

The start menu looks like a old version of windows and the black background screen used to be the blue windows 7 starter
