System Admin ID.

I cannot access things like "gadgets" because the system tells me only administrators can use these. I'm the only admin on my home network. How do I fix this?
On another problem: I cannot modify my screen background thru the NVIDIA setup. I have an NVIDIA card and a fully compatible screen. (Samsung SynchMaster 2443BW). what's wrong?
