CANNOT CHANGE DESKTOP BACKGROUND FROM STRETCH AFTER WINDOWS 7 REINSTALL RRS feed

  • Question

  • Recently had Windows 7 Reinstalled on my Sony VPCCW1Z4E. It was missing a lot of drivers after the reinstall but I have managed to download many and have gained many features back. However, I am unable to change my desktop background from stretch to any other picture position such as fit, tile etc. I have googled this problem and HP laptops had a similar problem however, this problem has not occured on any other laptops.

     

    Thank you.

  • Hi,

     

    The issue is mostly caused by incorrect driver. Please remove the current one from Device Manager and install the new one below.

    Also, delete all contents from %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Themes for a test. If the issue persists, you may need to contact Sony support for help.
