Bow To Me Compaq Presario B1900

Finally finished fixing Yap's notebook. It was stubborn at first but a little tinkering in safe mode and tinkering with msconfig did the trick. Uninstalled Symantec the resource hog and switched to avast. Also swapped out Azureus for uTorrent. Updated Firefox, Yahoo Messenger, Skype, QTime and iTunes. Anyway it's running smooth now.

I do suggest that Yap bump the RAM to atleast 1024Mb right now the ATI chip is eating up about 128Mb for VRAM. I think XP with 1024Mb is just about right for most things.

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
--
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…
