How To Change Image On Startup Screen

Oct 18, 2013

I am trying to change the image on the startup screen (the blue screen with a graphic of a tower on it)of my Inspiron 15 using windows 8. I have looked at the personalisation control panel, but it only offers me options to change themes, not the startup picture. My friend has a picture of honeycombe that came with system 8 as his startup screen, but he is away so I cannot ask him how he did it.

Newly Built PC - Can't Change Desktop Background Image

Mar 7, 2014

I recently built my own PC (I5-4670K) and installed Win 8.1 64 Bit OEM Builder. Installation went fast and easy. Updated all my drivers/win updates in the past 2 hours. Windows 8.1 is activated.

When I go to Taskbar and Navigation properties -> navigation menu -> "Show my desktop background on Start " and "Search everywhere instead of just my apps when I search from the Apps view" are BOTH GRAYED OUT.

When I go to Personalization to choose images for my background nothing happens. Not even windows desktop backgrounds or anything in my picture library gets recognized.

Maintenance :: Possible To Change Order Of Auto Startup Programs - Win 8

Mar 5, 2014

I'd like to change the order in which certain programs in my startup folder load. I don't need to know how to add or remove programs from the startup folder, and I'm not talking about security or system programs. I'm talking about some programs I've added to my computer, which I use all the time in my research work, and I just want them to wind up in a different order on my taskbar for ease in switching back & forth, making notes, etc.

Deployed right now so I'm kinda limited on what resources I can use and instead of dicking around with this problem id just use my time to skype family and friends. I usually like to solve to computer problem myself for the know how but don't have the time.

Black Screen On Startup

Jan 20, 2014

I installed Windows 8 over the weekend. I didn't want to but my parents have it and they keep harassing me to "fix" their computer so that it acts like Windows Vista, so I needed to know more about Windows 8. When Windows 8 was installed I updated to 8.1 and installed Office 2010. Office asked for a reboot so I rebooted and haven't been able to get into Windows since.

The computer boots to a black screen that flickers once in a while. I can see my mouse pointer on the screen when I move the mouse. I'm having trouble accessing Safe Mode. I did get a diagnostic tool to come up before Windows booted and I ran a full diagnostics on my computer. When the diagnostics were completed it dumped me into the boot options menu. I tried to let Windows refresh itself which did not work. I also did a System Restore which did not work.

I have unplugged all usb and serial cables from the computer to make sure that it wasn't an external hard drive or printer causing my problem.

I downloaded Windows 8 so I don't have a CD to boot from. My computer doesn't have a CD drive. My plan is to keep trying to boot into Safe Mode but once I am back in I don't know what I am going to do. I already did a system restore. I could try to uninstall Office but it is more likely that the 8.1 update is my biggest problem. I'm sure that there is a way to undo the 8.1 update.

I was just wondering if there is any new information out there. It would be nice if Microsoft had a fix for this problem but I can't find it on their website.

Accounts :: Getting Rid Of Old Email On Welcome / Startup Screen

Jul 5, 2014

Tried to follow instructions I was led to on YouTube to delete old email showing where I sign in with Windows 8.1 Pro Update.

Thought I'd cracked it as the old email has now disappeared from everywhere else I used it to sign in.

Signed back into Windows and.................... there it was again.

I was asked did I want to delete signing in with Windows and sign in locally. Now I'm not smart, but I didn't like the sound of that so cancelled that option.

Black Screen On Windows 8.1 Startup

Feb 19, 2014

always it happens that on the startup of windows 8.1 (and also when it was installed windows 8 before the windows 8.1 upgrade) after the republic of gamers logo and before the appearance of the lock screen, the monitor remains completely black for 5 minutes about (after that appears the lock screen and windows works again well). Usually Windows starts itself in 10 seconds about. During the black screen commands don't works. Can be the use of cc cleaner, that cleaning temporary files, creates this problem? I tried to reinstall the last version of the Nvidia display drivers but nothing changed. I took away all those unuseful programs from the windows startup.

I have a Asus ROG G750JX-CV200H Notebook bought 2/3 weeks ago:
Windows 8.1 home
Core i7 4700HQ
Nvidia GeForce GTX 770M
HDD 750GB 7200rpm

Blank White Screen On Startup

Apr 17, 2014

On startup, all I get is a blank white screen. I can't see anything. But, I can plug in a monitor and do everything else just fine.

I tried twiddling the drivers, but maybe I did it wrong or overlooked the right one(s). I tried a system restore, but that threw an error on restart.

I even dove in with my screwdriver to make sure no plugs got knocked loose (don't worry, warranties were long voided).

Graphic Cards :: Image Not Fill Screen After BIOS Update

Dec 4, 2013

Trying to address a different problem, Gigabyte suggested that I update the BIOS on my GA-F2A88X-D3H mb from F1 to F3. In addition to not solving the problem, after I updated the image displayed on my monitor--Dell 2209 WA--doesn't fill the screen. Everything's there, but the image stops about 3.5" short of the right bezel.

Using AMD's Catalyst Control Center hasn't worked. I've read some posts about a similar--the same?--issue that suggest changing a setting in "My Flat Panel Display." But I see only "My VGA Display," with no option for over- or under-scanning.

The image does display fully on rebooting--I see the Gigabyte UltraDurable logo, and on entering BIOS instead of going into Windows 8.1 (64-bit).

Since first writing this, I've tried the monitor's menu and other buttons without success.

Is it worth getting a DVI-D to DVI-D cable to connect digitally, in place of the current VGA connection?

Does it signify that the monitor reports a screen resolution exceeding its supposed maximum of 1680 x 1050, namely, 1920 x 1080? In both Windows screen resolution and AMD CCC, I'm unable to set a resolution above 1680 x 1050, and setting lower resolutions doesn't work.

Long Black Screen During Startup (no Cursor)

Aug 12, 2013

I recently upgraded my dell 1645 from windows 7 to 8.

I installed most of the drivers from the dell website even though they were meants for win 7. For some of them I installed drivers directly from the device manufacturers website.

When the computer first starts up it passes the windows logo, and then a black screen is shown (no cursor) for a good 5 minutes. Then it advances to the login (seatle cartoon image) and everything works perfectly.

I had another issue before that I think I solved which was the intel rapid storage technology. Whenever the computer would go to sleep I got a windows BSOD saying driver_irql_less_than_or_equal. But after installing the newest intel rapid storage drivers sleep seams to work perfectly.

The drivers I installed from the manufacturers that arent on the official 1645 driver page:

- ati radeon drivers from ati
- synaptics drivers
- bluetooth 380 drivers, supposed to be 370 I believe but it seems to only be 380 available which people say works.

I also tried running the intel chipset automatic check, which said I was on the latest.

Trapped With Back Screen On Windows 8.1 Startup

Jan 11, 2014

I have a Dell Inspiron 7572. I just upgraded to Windows 8.1 and followed some instructions on upgrading the catalyst video driver. I downloaded this and installed and it asked me to restart. However all I get now is a black screen. If I try moving the mouse it appears for a couple of seconds then disappears. I can't find any way to boot into safe mode as I can get anything up on screen. I imagine uninstalling the display driver will fix the issue but I can't work out anyway to get into windows to do it.

Windows 8 Startup Screen Crash For Only 1 Admin Account

Jul 10, 2014

I've had my windows 8 desktop for over 2 years now and I tried to log in to the administrator account.

But when I entered the correct password into it. The Startup screen opens but only shows 2 apps (Windows Store and Photos) and continuously blinks. I would post a screen shot,but it blinks too fast preventing the command. It continuously flashes from the incomplete Startup screen to a black blank screen back to the Startup screen.

I dont have the dump files from the SF diagnostic tool as this problem prevents me from clicking or entering any of the apps.

I know for sure that this is only an isolated problem with the administrator account as when I log into other admin and standard user accounts and the guest account, everything still works perfectly fine.

I scanned for viruses and found nothing with Norton 360 full system scan.

Im not sure when this started to occur as I haven't used the account for over a year.

I just want to know if I would be able to fix this problem or should I just delete this admin account and then create another admin account?

Dell Inspiron / Windows 8 - Grey Screen On Startup

May 26, 2013

I have a fairly new (bought in December) Dell Inspiron/Windows 8 that is used mainly by my kids to play games. It's minimally loaded- Windows Office, Adobe and generally starts up fast. Today they report to me that "something is wrong." On start up all I get is a grey screen. I tried F2 and F10 - no response. Doesn't even respond to Control/Alt/delete. I've searched the forums and the only thing that seems to come close is that they have possibly enlarged a split screen somehow so it's hiding everything else- but what to do? It has to get to Windows to do that, and we're not there yet.

Windows 8.1 Update 1 Caused Laptop To Hang With Black Screen At Startup

Apr 13, 2014

My little brother has an 8.1 laptop, and from what I understand, when it prompted him for updates he clicked to restart. Now when the laptop tries to restart he sees his manufacturer logo and the Windows 8 loading circle, but after this the monitor goes black and stays that way. At some point a bluescreen pops up, says something about fixing the PC, goes to 100% after 5 minutes, restarts the PC, and the PC goes back to the manufacturer logo to start the loop again.
