Options in gadget slideshow

Hi and welcome.
With the little information you gave it suggests that your video card or monitor can't handle it. It may also be the amount of memory you have but I think video card.

Please fill out in your profile the details about your computer. Than t may help.

Filled out profile. Should have said that If I make a new profile the slideshow options work perfectly. They had worked correctlly in this profile for about 2 months. I think something is corrupted

Is it the same with other gadgets? If not, recommend unistall - reinstall the gadget to see if that fixes it.

If so it might be the gadget program itself... which I don't haven't a clue how to fix...

Something probably did get corrupted or erased. Did you download any major programs or anything right before you noticed this?

CapWiz and it's hardware.

It might have corrupted you video drivers. I'd start with reinstalling those.

Thanks all. I did everything you all suggested to no avail. I then tried a re-install of windows hat would keep my settings but that didn't work as windows said it could not write to my registry file. So I just wiped it all out and reloaded windows. I think that there were other problems as system restore would not do a restore and there were a couple of other problems that made me think the installation might be corrupt. All is well now
