Windows 7: Desktop background stuck on 'Fill' (not HP)

26 Feb 2011   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 32bit
Desktop background stuck on 'Fill' (not HP)

Hi all,

I have a Sony Vaio, and cannot get the desktop background to show on anything other than 'Fill'. Even if I select 'Centre', or any of the other options, the theme is still shown in the 'Fill' format.

I tried the HP .exe to cure the problem with 'Stretch', but that didn't make a difference.

Can anyone help please?

Doesn't anyone else have this problem? :) I'm using Aero themes, if it makes a difference
