My laptop desktop screen is going haywire. The two screenshots below show it's progression in the last hour. Right now the desktop screen is bright green. It appears to be cycling through all the available colours. Strangely it doesnt affect browser pages. My laptop is  a Samsung RV510 and I'm running Windows 7 home. Thanks

Because it appears that only the background color is changing (the background picture itself it appears). Most likely windows is cycling through backgrounds. If you right click on your desktop (anywhere in open space) and then click personalize, you can change your background from there.

If I am helping you with a problem and I have not responded within 48 hours please send me a PM.

Windows 7 is a marvelous OS, but has some quirks. It defaults to presenting you with a slide show of available wall paper images unless you select one specific image. If you happen to have a nice collection that you want as a slide show, then just point to the folder containing them and away it goes. If you want just one always, then you have to explicitly select it.
