sorry about not replying early.

I went to regedit and checked the background the key shows as 000.
Do you know how to change in the settings without going to regedit because that's how ic remember having changed it.

thanks for the help again.

Hi Mahesh,

It's not a problem, I understand that people will have other time commitments.

Darn, thought I had it then.

There are three ways to take photos of your screen before Windows has booted.

1) By recording your computer video output and taking a snapshot of that video (HDMI, VGA cables etc.)

2) By setting up a virtual machine (a program that allows you to install Windows inside Windows) and just taking a screenshot.

3) With a digital camera

Option 3 is by far the easiest and it would be very helpful if you could take a photo of your problem and attach it with your next post. In the mean time, I will dig further. I'll have a big look around control panel.

Tom

Though i was not able to actually capture the white screen but my problem is that when the screen changes from image 2 to image 3 i get a white screen.i want to change the color of that screen.I hope you can analyse my problem now.

It don't get the white screen every time but only sometimes but i am sure that i changed the color of the screen from windows settings without using the registry
I hope you can help me now.

regards
Hi Mahesh

Thanks for the photos, they were very helpful.

How often do you get these white screens?

Can you do the following and see if you are still getting the white screens?

Boot Into Safe Mode

1. Save any work and close all open windows
2. Press Alt+F4
3. Select Restart in the drop down menu and press ok
4. When your computer has shutdown and is just starting to boot again (on the BIOS screen that usually has the manufacturer’s logo on it) press F8
5. Using the arrow keys, select Safe Mode and press enter


Do you have a Windows 7 installation DVD?

And one last thing, can you do the following for me please:
Please make sure you do this in normal mode - ie not in safe mode.

OTL

Download OTL to your desktop.
Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed to let it run uninterrupted.
When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
Under the Extra Registry box change it to All.
Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTL.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTL.
Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply.

Hi Mahesh,

Okay, once I see the OTL log, I will decide whether to do a repair install or not. I'm pretty sure that would fix your problem Plus it allows you to keep all of your files, programs and settings. But the OTL log may reveal something easier
