In Windows 7, I replaced the blue screen with the flower that comes up between the boot animation and the logon screen and now it will not show up... So I returned it and it still will not show up. the size is may be the difference as I seemed to noticed that bringing it up in paint altered the file's size to 2.25mg and it was slightly smaller. I found another copy of that same blue graphic with the flower but it does not work either. the location of the file was \windows\system32\oobe. restor point did not resolve the issue.

I think if I replace the file with the right pixel size it may resolve the issue but I did not write down that file's size so i have no idea what it was. Any help? BUT only look at the file through properties.

What dll is it in? It doesn't show up just looking in c:\\windows\system32\oobe.

Maybe run sfc /scannow from a Elevated Command prompt?

The file is in windows 7 at location: c:\\windows\system32\oobe and is called background.bmp right click on it, go to properties and look at the image size (the amounnt of space it takes up on the Hard Drive). You could also then open it with paint and look at the resolution, i think it should say 1024x768? But DO NOT click on save lest you are in the same boat as I are. If the file size is different than 11024x768 then I will need to change that as well.

I was looking at my Windows 8 system, not 7. Checked there and you are correct:

W7BackgroundBmp.JPG

In case you need it, here is a zipped copy: Attached File  background.zip   660KB   52 downloads

i was given this addy - http://www.geekstogo...rum/index.php?s
but cannot find the location or even find " index "

I cannot even find the post that gave the addy. - strange

The bmp file size is 1024x768 and 2305kb
but all the images referenced to this come out 1024x768 and 2.25 mb
So I must alter the 2.25 to 2305 w/o changing the 1024x768
I have tried many varances but nothing comes close... any ideas?
