    Desktop background is gone

    With Win7-64, my desktop background has disappeared. I can open Personalize and set one of the regular Windows Desktop Backgrounds. I've tried Tile, Center and Stretch with several of them. Shuffle is not turned on. I press Save changes. No screen saver is selected (set to (None)). Nothing will happen.

    I also select Themes with no effect. Window Color is working. Windows will use both monitors for forms with no abnormalities.

    Using dual HP 2509 monitors with NVidia graphics.

    Is there something that I can try or do to try to correct this.

    TIA,
    Jim

    Have you tried to check whether there is a graphics card driver update? This is something easy to try and graphics cards have caused many weird problems in the past. NVidia has always been good about updating drivers, in my experience.
