    hey guys, when i change my desktop background, to any picture in any format, after a while it reverts back to a black backround. It might be something simple, but im not really technical =P
    i tried adding themes and making a slide thing, where it changes pictures every 1 day, but it still didnt work. Any help would be appreciated.

    Hi Kronos,
    are you using a laptop? If so which one?

    Sorry Kronos the above post was spam as it was trying to sell you some software..
    Although the question does stand.. Are your drivers and system Bios the latest versions?

    Well as long as everything is updated, what about security? Which, if any, are you running?

    Kronos, what is the actual name and manufacturer of your machine? I'll check to see if any Bios updates are forth coming...

    I think RAK is onto the problem. I know this problem is what happens when you do not have genuine windows after the trial period expires. It changes your background to solid black and will keep reverting it until you make windows genuine.
