Windows 7 Desktop Background Slideshow Not Working

I right clicked on the desktop and clicked Personalize and for the desktop background I selected a few images for a slide-show, but the desktop slide-show is not working. Help!

Please fill in your system specs. http://www.sevenforums.com/general-d...tem-specs.html
If you have a laptop, check in Power Options to make sure it is enabled.

Yeah, try downloading the drivers for your sound card from the manufacturer.

Hi cgrim29588

Try double clicking the theme you want, it should put it down in background slide show, now click slide show you should be able to set how often you want them to change. Let us know if it works or we'll try another solution.
