Windows 7: Desktop is a Black Screen

11 May 2010   #11

Windows 7 Ultimate x64, Mint 9

bdjones, glad it is fixed.

Just for reference, next time see if you can boot into safe mode to see if the problem occurs.

I would also take a look at your desktop icons that you deleted and see if one of them might have triggered this. Also, try just installing that LifeCam driver and see if the problem occurs again.
