View Full Version : Major desktop problem

07-10-2007, 04:31 AM
Hi, i wonder if anyone can help me with a problem im having with my desktop wallpaper. Basically when i set an image as my wallpaper it appears in the bottom right corner of my screen showing just the upper left corner of the image. it only covers approx 2/3 of my desktop. i have tried everything to fix this and its really annoying. i have tried resizing the images, different refresh rates, new graf card drivers (geforce 6700XL). Tried stretch, tile and centre in display properties, various resolutions combined with refresh rates. different images, even tried a different monitor probably a few things i have missed but i been trying for days
Any help anyone could offer would be appreciated, before the mrs kills me for not bein able to put pictures of the kids up My screen resolution is 1440 X 990 on a 19 inch widescreen and its on windows XP service pack 2.

I saw and fixed this problem once...let me eat lunch and try to remember...it might've been the "view as webpage" part...that seems to ring my bell...but I gotta get brain food first.....

Doesnt look too bad to me, but run HJT again, tick these entries then tick fix checked.

Close browser/s.

I would uninstall AVG or Avast. You dont need both.

If both scan email.

You havent had a second monitor/tv hooked up at some point and the driver is trying to show it on both displays? Just a random thought:D

Or the program you've possibly used to change your icons has added a border to your background pic???

Try this if you have not done so or checked - It may be active desktop is engaged.

Right-click on your desktop, choose Properties, go to the Desktop tab, click the Customize Desktop button, go to the Web tab and uncheck all of the web pages.

Thats copied from This site (http://www.12noon.com/aligner.htm) it also has a program that allows you to align the desktop where ever you want.( Screen shot top right of page). Home page and download (http://www.12noon.com/index.htm) 4th program down.

Not the ideal fix, but it may get you out of trouble with the other half.:D

I also read in another post on another forum,someone else had the same problem, but when logging into another profile on the same PC it was OK.
