    You should be able to change it by going to Settings > Accounts > Your email and accounts. You'll see your existing pic, and underneath that you'll see the options to either browse for an existing pic, or use the camera on your PC/laptop (if it has one) to take a new pic.

    I have tried that and as all I get is an error saying "Setting the account picture failed. Please try again."

    Are you able to change other account-related settings? Does the account you're logged in with have Admin rights?

    The account was the only one so I assume it did, However, I needed to get a replacement due to another problem that I had but thankyou for your help :)

    No problem.

    Perhaps your issue was related to the other problem? Hopefully you're good on the new machine.
