Default Display Settings

On my friend's laptop, when I right click on the desktop and go to properties and Display Properties I only see two tabs, Screen Saver and Settings. It won't let me change the desktop image. Anyone have any idea how to fix this?

Did this suddenly get like this, or did he do something that caused it?

He said when he first got it, the background was blue with a bunch of numbers and letters. Kind of sounds like a blue screen of death, and he had to choose either Yes or No and he forgot which one he choose, but ever sence then it's been like that. I searched the net and downloaded this program, that brought back the Desktop tab, but the box that has all the wallpapers in it, with the scrollbar is kind of greyed out and won't let me scroll down or anything.
