I PMed it too you Smile
Ok use this and report back:

background: url(images/dark1.8/halo3background.jpg) no-repeat center top; 


Your mistake was image extension i.e its jpg not jpEg

upload image to "dark1.8" folder. (you can also keep image in "images" folder)

hard refresh browser (Ctrl+F5) and check
It still doesn't work http://prntscr.com/a2gcdu

It should work,

But i see this error on image [404 - Not Found]

Make sure image is there and accessible directly from browser like below

EDIT:
if it still don't work then try this i.e upload image to external image host (not recommended)
background: url('http://www.imgur.com/halo3background.jpg') no-repeat center top;

You forgot to put ' & ' before & after url

Try this:

background: url('http://i.imgur.com/65YfilX.jpg') no-repeat center top;
