    I just got my macbook 8 days ago. Already love it. But about 3 days ago I changed the background to black, and now it won't change to anything else. The picture in the system preferences/desktop & screensaver box changes, but the background won't.

    I run OS X Lion 10.7 (not sure if I wrote it out right or not, but that is the gist).

    I haven't updated it ever. Any ideas?

    Try rebooting if you haven't already. Then try to change the background to some Apple default ones, maybe that could help...

    Are you running any UI tweaking app by any chance?

    Same problem

    I have the same problem. I rebooted and it still won't change! I just got my MacBook not even 2 weeks ago :(
