If you are using PunBB go to :
Code:
AP/Display/Colors/CSS
Code:
body {
background-image: url ('HERE CHANGE URL');
}

If its not that change it here:
Code:
#pun-intro {
background-image: url ('HERE CHANGE URL');
}

Try what LE posted, if that doesn't work add !important before the ;

Like this:
Code:
body {
  background-image: url ('HERE CHANGE URL') !important;
}

Don't really recommend using that in your style sheet but it gets the job done.

Where it says change URL put the direct URL of the bg image you want.

i.e. www.yoursite.com/background.jpg

Apply this to your CSS in your ACP.
(ACP > Display > Colors > CSS)
