can not get display properties to work in normal mode, screen saver and
setting show only. In safe mode display works but the changes will not stay.

Scan your system for parasites and malware.

Then edit the Registry.

Appearance and Theme Tabs
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
Value Name: NoDispAppearancePage
Data type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: (0 = Tabs, 1 = No Tabs)

Desktop Tab
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
Value Name: NoDispBackgroundPage
Data type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: (0 = Tabs, 1 = No Tabs)

Screen Saver Tab
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
Value Name: NoDispScrSavPage
Data type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: (0 = Tabs, 1 = No Tabs)

Settings Tab
[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
Value Name: NoDispSettingsPage
Data type: REG_DWORD
Value Data: (0 = Tabs, 1 = No Tabs)

If you have XP Pro, use the Group Policy to change the restrictions.

User Configuration > Administrative Templates > Control Panel > Display

There you will see the restrictions you need to remove.

Start Regedit.exe and navigate to:

[HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]
and
[HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System]

In the right-pane, delete the following values (if exists)

- NoDispBackgroundPage
- NoDispScrSavPage
- NoDispSettingsPage
- NoDispAppearancePage
