Windows XP Home Ed.//SP3
Having a Problem with my Desktop Backgrounds, when I add a New Wallpaper Image, I can't get in Centered (If I adjust my Monitor it screws up everything else)...Image winds up in Lower Right Hand Corner (Facing Monitor), then when I Stretch it, I lose about 30% on the Image. Can this behavior be corrected??

Hi -
First run check disk r with this code. Copy and paste it into Run box , close all programs and click OK -
CMD /C ECHO Y|CHKDSK C: /R | SHUTDOWN /R /T 30
Your computer will shut down in 30 seconds and then boot into the full 5 stage disk check. Do not try to stop it or turn off during the check. On finish it will reboot back to normal mode for you.
Please allow 'about' 1 hour for the check to run, longer if some errors are found.
Next please reply with the make and model of your computer, and the monitor as well- -
Are these 'downloaded' wallpapers or original M/soft items, if downloaded do you remember the site they came from as some are not good -

Thank You

After you finish this, please try a standard M/soft background and we can reset the display properties -

Ok, Ran the CMD, went through in about 35 minutes (5 Stages), nothing turned up. Opened Windows > Right Click Desktop > Properties > Display Properties > Set Background to "Windows XP" Stretch (tried Center but it was Still Off-set to Lower Right Corner) Stretch ended Up as Windows Logo being Chopped in Half > Settings > Set Resolution @ 1280 x 1024 @ 70Hz
