Hi Folks,

For the past few days my computer bootsup competely to a Black Screen. No Problem Bootingup but I have lost my Windows XP Theme. You know the background- Greend field & BLue Sky & White Clouds. I have tried several times going into Control Panel > Display and setting it up but after sometime it goes back to the Black Screen and also Bootsup each time with the Black Screen.

Please Help!!

Thanks

The story is that this can be caused by a non-genuine copy of Windows.

If not retaining display themes then try a repair :-

Repair XP by replacing corrupt files
Type

sfc /scannow

in the run box, press enter and let system file checker find and replace missing / corrupt file in windows and explorer.This will take awhile to complete and you may be asked for the CD to be in the drive if windows is not preinstalled on the hard drive.

I would respectfully suggest that an XP Repair and Scannow are similar, but used for different reasons.

First thing to try is system restore if it will work.
