How come my background and icons disappear when I unplug my laptop charger?

Q: Every time I unplug my laptop from the charger, my background and icons disappear and it’s just a blank screen. I can go down to the bottom and the task manager is still there, but not the background or icons.

It only does it on the administrators’ account not the other user.

How do I fix this? I have an ASUS laptop and Windows Vista. It just recently started doing this.
