If yea then the reason is as Home Basic does not have themes support. Since this behavior is "by design", there is no resolution. However, click the Windows start icon in the bottom left of the screen, and then type "Change desktop background" in the search box & slect & click it & you get to the personalization window & can make changes to your desktop as you like it.....

The same applies for Windows Stater user as well since the Samsung laptop you are using comes with a Starter edition so follow the same (which i mentioned for Windows Home Basic) & you might wanna check this link as well:
Download Personalization Panel For Windows 7 Starter And Home Basic Editions
You can download personalization panel which is a small tool specially made for Home Basic and Home Premium editions of Windows 7 to use the premium features in basic editions.

Hope this resolve the issue . If not just let us know & will be more then happy to help you...
