Computer Spec and Logon details on your wallpaper

Q: Computer Spec and Logon details on your wallpaper

Hi I don't know if anyone knows how to set this up but I can't seem to find anything on it.

In a couple of businesses that I work in the administrator is setup so that when they logon to any workstation they get a blank wallpaper but with there: username, domain, computer name & that certain workstations spec in the bottom right corner, I'm not sure if its a program or if Its something included in Server 2003 or Windows XP.

Sorry if I'm not clear enough

Cheers Joe.

Preferred Solution: Computer Spec and Logon details on your wallpaper

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

My method for automatically changing the Windows 7 logon/logoff wallpaper with every logon.

Step 1: Use one of the many guides on the web to enable custom/oem logon wallpaper, such as Brink's: Log On Screen - Change

Step 2: Copy whatever JPEG images you want to use for logon/logoff wallpaper in to C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds
You do not need to rename them -- just so long as their file extension is JPG or JPEG they'll be fine.

Step 3: Copy the following into C:\Windows\System32\oobe\info\backgrounds\rand.vbs

Hello friends, I am in need of some desperate help, and I wasn't sure where to post this. =x
I've been experiencing this problem for over a day now, so I'm just going to post the "logs" I've written down as I've gone through the process of trying to find a solution.

Background: I've had this computer for almost a year, and have never experienced a problem with it before yesterday.

My Specs: i5-4670 @ 3.4GHz, Adata XPG V2 8GB DDR3 1600, Gigabyte GA-Z87-HD3, Thermaltake Smart Series 750w PSU, NVIDIA GTX 760 2GB, and I run Windows 7.

Note: The main problem at this point is that when I load my computer, the only thing that shows is my desktop wallpaper and nothing else - icons, taskbar, etc. don't load. When I try to Ctrl+Alt+Del, the screen goes black and I hit either spacebar or Enter to get back to the unresponsive desktop wallpaper screen once again.
The problem all started when I attempted to boot up the computer one morning, the lights turned on for a split second and immediately turned off once again. After searching Google thoroughly, it appeared as if this was the computer attempting to stop from short circuiting. I personally have no experience with computer hardware whatsoever, so I was baffled as to what to do, as the computer would not start up anymore. My father simply unplugged everything, took a look inside of the computer, switched on something that appeared to be an alternate on/off thinger, and hooked it up once again. This time, the computer lo... Read more

Can one of our experts give me a blow-by-blow sequence of what happens when you logon (to specifically a Win XP computer). Where does the operating system look for the list of users authorized for the computer -- in a specific file or in the registry? And as you select the user (either the administrator by default if there are not multiple users or one specific user), what file contains the settings showing the user privileges for that user, the user name, password if any, etc. I assume this starts off in an "all users" folder or "administrator" folder at the start, then move to the folder for the specific user. If the logon privileges are not in the C:\Documents and Settings folder but have been moved to another drive, for example, what would be the name of the file in that drive that contains the logon data?

Going through some pictures on the Facebook group 'I am Fluent in Sarcasm' I noticed a small window briefly pop up, I couldn't read what it said because it disappeared quickly. I had a bad feeling about it and afterward my computer started running very slowly. I restarted it, typed in my password, then got a blue screen which said this:A problem has been detected and windows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer.If this is the first time you?ve seen this stop error screen, restart your computer. If this screen appears again, follow these steps.Check to see if you have adequate disc space. If a driver is identified in the stop message, disable the driver or check with the manufacturer for driver updates. Try charging video updates. Check with your hardware vendor for any BIOS updates, disable BIOS memory options such as caching or shadowing.

Hi all,

how do we change the wallpaper before you log into your user profile? I mean, before you hit Ctrl-Alt-Delete to login. I'm referring to a corporate computer...

i believe it would be somewhere in the registry. Other users are able to change it to a blue screen wallpaper with error msgs. I thought I got BSOD error only to find out it's just a wallpaper.

A:Windows Logon wallpaper

Removing the graphics and getting a plain blue screen is done through Msconfig.

Changing the actual image is done editting the ntoskrnl.exe.

Knowing this, you can Google and find the directions.

Editting the kernel is fraught with risk - only ever play around like that if you can afford to lose all your stuff.

If i turn on my laptop, this has happened before but was fixed with system restore, it starts fine. But, it gets to the welcome screen and takes a while and then it goes to my wallpaper. No icons, nothing on the screen but the wallpaper, not even CTRL+ALT+DELETE will show up. I have no idea on earth what is wrong. Sadly i removed all my old system restores. I have my most recent which registry mechanic made before it fixed any errors (these were common errors that i have seen fixed before, like moving of a jpg file and such) so i tried going to safe mode (works fine) and did system restore. It loads normally, gets to welcome, and we are back to square one.

Also, virus HIGHLY unlikely. I have avast, spybot, malwarebytes and my friend built a scanner that finds things like rats and eeps (and other little viruses that normal anti virus doesn't) and he said he scanned not long ago and found nothing major. Just a couple little viruses slowing firefox a tad.

New info: It will start after 10-40 minutes but spybot will see things like bootexecute or something or another deleted or changed. Also...i can't connect to internet. It sees our router but doesn't want to talk. I tried uninstalling the network driver so it will reinstall (i have to wait for it to restart...gawd XD) so any ideas. This really bites.


A:URGENT: Logon and goes to wallpaper only

If you're able to boot to safe mode try Start>Run>Msconfig>check startup tab and uncheck anything you dont need to boot Do the same for services, be sure that hide Microsoft services is checked, before disabling any. If it boots ok after this then try re-enabling services and startup one at a time, or run them manually after booting.

It took me a while to discover that the lock screen and the logon screen are not the same thing. Thankfully I know know that they are different things.

Whenever I startup windows 10 I always land on the login screen, perfect for security reasons (the password) because I'm the only user of my laptop and I dont want anyone else using it without my permission. But there is a problem, I get tired of seeing the same login wallpaper each time I log on. Like the lock screen wallpaper and the desktop wallpaper can automatically be changed to a "new" picture, Id like to have the same functionality with my login screen. Does anybody know how I can do this? And I dont mean to change the picture on the login screen to just a new picture but to cycle between pictures in a folder of images (or even better windows spotlight pictures (as in the lock screen wallpaper).

Thanks in advance!

Hi all - my first post here. This site has helped me IMMENSELY with my transition from XP to 7 over the past few years. I always found exactly what I was looking for, but today I am stumped.

In Windows XP, there was an option to change the logon screen background color:
HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors

You could change the string "Background" to any 3-digit RGB color code you wanted.
(i.e., 0 0 0 = black, etc.)

This color would show up on CTRL+ALT+DEL plus it would show up when you logged in remotely using Remote Desktop.

Changing the logon screen background wallpaper is great when you're physically at the machine (and I've already done this), but you don't see it when you're connecting via Remote Desktop. Instead you're stuck with the OEM blue background color.

The same key I mentioned above does in fact exist in Windows 7, but it doesn't appear to have any effect.

Does anyone know how to do this?

Thank you!

So the Flex 5 (15") 81CA's spec sheet says it uses DDR4-2133 RAM, but the RAM in the machine I received is definitely DDR4-2400. That's good, but I'm just wondering what's going on here. With DDR4-2400 RAM installed, does it actually run at 2400 MHz or 2133 MHz? And if it runs at 2133 by default, is there a way to change that to 2400? Per Intel's official CPU specs the CPU and chipset should support 2400. Any ideas?

A:Flex 5 (15") 81CA spec sheet RAM data rate doesn't match parts spec

Hi jdrch,
The 81CA does run on 2400 MHz as shown in the general specification sheet, 16GB max / 2133MHz or 2400MHz DDR4, one DDR4 SO-DIMM socket. 
Checking on the general category for Flex 5 1570 here shows 80XB models had the 2133MHz and the 81CA had 2400 MHz. The same goes in the parts lookup page using model numbers 81CA here.
I hope this helps answer your query.

I just got a new laptop as a second computer. It has 1.8ghz processor and a gig of RAM. Everything is so stable, not one error yet. My Playstation emulator plays every game with full smoothing on with it's 32mb graphics card perfectly. DVD's are good quality. Task switching is smooth. Menus pop up instantly.

My PC is a disappointment. Unhappy with its performance from the word go, I upgraded its RAM to 2 gig. 256mb of that is eaten by what appears to be the most unstable graphics card in history. I have Vista on this one. I can't start the thing without an error or two appearing. It runs at a could crash any second state all the time, is constantly loading and more often than not has a display driver error. I need ReadyBoost to make it run at an acceptable state! The latest driver seem to fix one issue and break another (for instance I now have less display crashes but slow as anything graphics performance). It does work well for my music apps as its processor allows for lots of soft synths but its support for ASIO is awful. Do you reckon going down to XP will make it an impressive machine? As for DVD's, they are grainier than a bowl of shredded wheat!

Hello there everyone! A newbee in here and also not much a smart *** in the realm of tech so kindly bear with me!

I have recently upgraded to a new laptop of the following specs:

DELL Inspiron, i7, 16GB Ram, 1 Tb HDD, Win 10 (genuine)

from an older laptop with following specs:

HP Pavilion, i3, 4GB Ram, 320GB HDD, Originally Win 7, later updated to Win 10 (genuine)
(Used this bad boy for almost 7 years!)

I still used my older laptop for work purposes until the HDD in it died on me last week for some particular reason. I have a spare SSD (500 GB) that I am thinking to replace the damaged HDD with. Since I am new this, I have a couple of doubts that I hope you lot in here can help me with:

1) Can I clone the HDD in my new laptop to the spare SSD and install the SSD in my older laptop, given the major differences in specs?

2) If the answer to (1) is yes, is there a particular set of steps I need to follow in this case or do I just follow the steps of a basic cloning process?

3) Assuming I could do the above, would I have to reinstall Windows in the older laptop? I still do have the Windows 7 Home product key that was originally installed on my older laptop.

Also do suggest if you think I should avoid the all-in-all idea of cloning and just freshly install Windows on the SSD and later just copy the files I need from my new laptop.

Thanking you in advance to taking the time out to read my post and helping me out!

A:Copy HDD from high spec to SSD in a lower spec system?

You can't clone a 1TB hdd into a 500GB ssd due to size limitation.

It is also illegal to clone one Windows to be used on more than one computer.

You can just replace the dead hdd with your 500GB ssd now and install its original Windows 7 on it if you have the license.

You can pass the data between computer via a network or USB devices but the operation is not cloining. If you clone something it ends up with a mirror image of the original.

A ssd can be used in exactly the same way as a hard drive. It has nothing to do the high spec. In a higher spec PC things move just faster and the fast ssd is therefore put to a better use.

Optical Drive - Single Drive: 16X CD/DVD burner (DVD+/-RW) w/double layer write capability

Monitor - 20 inch SP2008WFP Wide Flat Panel with Webcam and Mic (don't really care about the mic and webcam, just like the 20 inch over the 19 inch)

**Video Card - I was thinking of either getting the Dual nVidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB / OR the nVidia GeForce 8800 GT 512MB. Wasn't sure which would get 40+ fps. Preferably around 50 fps. Please help with decision.

Sound Card - Sound Blaster® X-Fi™ XtremeGamer (D) Sound Card

Thanks in advance.

A:Computer Spec Overview

1. Instead of an E8400, go with a Q6600.

2. What is the motherboard? Chances are, it has good quality on-board audio and you don't need an additional sound card.

3. Stick with 500GB harddrive. A 10,000 RPM drive has faster access times, but you'd kick yourself later about the lack of space.

4. If you can budget it in, get an ATi 4850 for your graphics card. As to your question about the 8800s, I'm not sure I understand. If you can get one or two of a graphics card, two will obviously perform better in most games.

P.S. Please ignore the RAM size and HDD size, I have personal extras from my last machine

A:Computer Spec, please advise

Psu is probably crap but everything else looks ok.

K so im playing a game called rappelz and im getting a pretty low fps.
Usually FPS is at 20 then drops to around 8 when multiple players are around.

Nvida Geforce 8500 GT
3gb ram
Windows 7 Professional 64 bit
Intel Core 2 Quad CPU Q6700 @ 2.66GHz (4CPU), ~ 2.7GHz

A:Low fps on high spec computer?

That system doesn't seem that high end to me, your FPS could be perfectly normal for the settings that you run Rappelz at. I personally have never played the game, but I know people who have, and I haven't heard much about high load graphics.

Anyways, what resolution do you run the game at? What filters/quality?

Hi I'm currently looking to buy a second hand laptop and wondered if it was possible to make windows say its a better spec then it really is. If this is possible is there any way to thoroughly check the computers spec?

A:Testing spec of second hand computer

Well if there is a will there is a way..It's possible that you can "fake " the specs. But how about looking into the BIOS and check out the amount of RAM , CPU speed. etc... That is not easy to fake..

I have a Inspiron 6000 Notebook from Dell. The system seems to be spec'd for 200-pin PC2-3200S-333 DRAM. Can I remove the RAM module and input 200-pin PC2-4200S-444 SDRAM instead? I mean, would there be voltage issues? Can I mix-and-match DRAM with SDRAM?

Thanks in advance!

Hi, I'm new here, just wanted opinions on buying parts to buy my own PC and if it would hold up for a couple of years for gaming?

Cpu: AMD FX-6200 3.80GHz 6-core
Memory: 4GB DDR3 1333MHz
Motherboard: ASUS M5A97 AMD 970

I've not included the power supply and hard drive etc. because they didn't seem relevant much.
All suggestions are welcome but I'm limited by a budget of £400.

A:Is this computer spec worth buying?

That's not a great gaming setup, games are mostly dependant on the GPU and the 6570 will likely only play games on low details.

Is the budget just for those 4 components or does it include everything (PSU, hard drive, case, etc.)

Hello there, I hope it's a good place to post this, some time ago I spend a bit of money to build fairly good pc for a low cost I made it, however computer performance is really low, in fact my old machine from ages ago ran way better. I have Windows 7 Professional with latest updates, also my hardware is using latest drivers, let me tell you what's wrong first.

In games I get pretty low FPS for example;

1. League Of Legends running with the lowest settings I don't go more than 80 FPS and it's when nothing is happening on the battlefield

2. Games like Counter-Strike Global Offensive, Rust Diablo III it's the same or even worse

3. When want to stream/record using various programs (xfire, Open Broadcast, Xsplit) my game it becomes completely unplayable

4. When i set up my machine for streaming and want to use my tv as 2nd monitor FPS goes so low that game is unplayable.

Below I will try post as much info as I can.

How can I re-associate .mp4 files with video details displaying in the Details Pane? After installing the K-lite codecs pack, my mp4's all began displaying in the details pane as audio files (Album, Artist etc) and no longer displays the important video default details (size, frame height, bitrate etc). I assume it was because of incorrectly associating file types when installing the codecs (even though wmv's, avi's are still correct), so I uninstalled the codecs but the Details categories remain for typical audio files. I've exhausted The Google and I'm stumped... any help? (Win7, 32-bit with VLC as my default player) Thanks!

I need a little help with something that seems simple. I am using Windows 7 Enterprise 64-bit. I have changed the columns in Details view in a folder. However Windows is not populating those columns, so what am I missing? This holds true on both my network drives and my local drives, so I checked my indexing options and they are set to index my local drives, so I assumed that should have at least worked. Any help would be very much appreciated.

Is it possible to get from a PC (or laptop) remotely information such as computer name, mac address, amount of RAM, HDD size, serial number etc?
At my new job one of my tasks is to keep up to date the company's PC/laptop list up to date such info. It would be easier if I could write a script that would go out say once a week to each PC and get the info them update a spreadsheet.
I would probably have to use SNMP or similar.
Is such info available and where does it reside?
