|Hello, I'm a bit of a novice so I figure it'd be best to ask you guys (the experts) about how I might go about fixing my problem.|
I have a Dell computer (I'm not sure of the make or model but it's a flatscreen and about 3-5 years old I think). It's installed with Windows XP.
Recently my desktop has not been working properly, it hasn't been showing my background image and it's incredibly annoying. So I went to change it (Right click/properties/desktop) and it wouldn't work.
So then I went into the "settings" and fooled with some things to see if they would help but to no avail. So lastly I went to change the screen resolution and put it at it's highest settings.
I pressed "OKAY" in the bottom right corner and the screen immediately went black. In the center of the screen, moving around a bit was a wite box with text inside, it said something like:
"Input not satisfactory", it wasn't that but it was something similar.
Then when I turned it on the blue HP screen comes up, and then the loading XP thing comes up and then the screen would go black and display the same message.
Then I restarted it and when the blue HP screen came up I pressed "F1" to go into the settings. I changed one thing, which I think was the "reset" type of thing and then I saved and exited and the computer restarted.
When it came back on it once again did the blue screen and then went directly to a black screen that said something like:
"Non-Disk... blah blah blah, press key when you have completed blah blah blah."
I'm sorry I don't have more complete evidence of what's happening but I am at the public library and I do not have my computer on hand.
Thank you all so very much, and please help me!
