    I recently tried to hook my computer up to my television, through my S-video input. In order to view my monitor on the TV screen I have to choose the extend monitors option, through setting tab of the display properties window.

    Anyway when I did this last my Wallpaper disappeared and the screen reverted to a black screen. The weird thing is whenever I turnoff my computer or boot it up the the "old" wallpaper appears for a split second and then reverts to the black desktop background. What is the issue here? and how do I solve it?

    Although this is a minor problem I am still curious on what has caused it.

    What resolution do you run normally? What resolution are you running when displaying on the TV? Have you tried to remove and re-add the wall paper through display properties?
