I've been using the Slide Show Screen Saver for a while now but recently a problem cropped up. The slide show would run for about 5 minutes or so but then it would freeze on a picture for a bit and then the screen would go black with a Slide Error message. What's wrong and how can I fix it?

Can anyone tell me how to display the filenames along with the photos I've included in my customized wallpaper and screensaver?

It would come in useful if I particularly liked a photo currently being displayed and wanted to locate it so that I could maybe print it out. I was able to do this with my screensaver in XP.

A:How do I show filenames on wallpaper and screen saver p

Unless the function is built into the actual screensaver application then this will not be possible.

There are of course many different photo screensaver applications available. Microsoft themselves produce an enhances version of the included Screensaver that is installed with the Photo management part of the Live essentials suite Google also provide a screensaver with Picassa

I have a few personal photos set up to show as a screen saver. When I preview the settings all is fine. When screen saver starts, it runs through the photos and then the screen goes black with a message about an error stopped screen saver from running. It doesn't tell me what error or any other information. The setup is the same as I have on another PC only with fewer pictures.

Vista screen saver wont show photo titles there doesnt appear to be any options to include titles anywhere ...anyone have an idea how to get photo titles to show on a slideshow?

A:Vista screen saver wont show photo titles

If I remember correctly, the XP screensaver you are referring to doesn't do that (I don't have an XP machine up and running to verify). And for that matter, I don't think the Vista one works any differently (odds are, I'm seeing the same thing as you in my 32bit version of Home Premium, and the closest I see in the settings for that screensaver are 'tagging' options, which I'm pretty sure won't do what you're asking for ).

Are you sure you're not mistaking it for a third party screensaver perhaps? I know Google's Photo Screensaver lists details like that.

when i start my computer it doesnt show anything at all and then about 20 seconds later the login screen will pop up and everything works after that. it all started when i got my new graphics card and now i gotta plug my moniter into the card. and while its booting i can switch the moniter to the normal built in moniter plug thing. i think its vga ( its the blue one without the fancy pins) the graphics card is a visiontek radeon x1300 256mb pci. and im using windows xp professional. thanks
 

A:Solved: Boot Screen wont show goes straight to login screen.

You need to change the primary video card in the BIOS setup of the computer from the onboard video to PCI-Express/PEG and then you need to disable the integrated video. Your computer is still set to use the integrated video card as the primary card. Once you have it set correctly to the PCI-Express card then you shoudl always have the monitor connected to the new card and it shoudl display everything correctly.

XP Service Pack 3

Screensaver is enabled and so is 'Display welcome screen when coming back from screensaver'.

This works most of the time, however on a regular basis the screensaver will resume to the following screen and just stay there forever.


The only thing to do is to press the power button, at which point a popup alerts that a user is logged in, do you still want to shut down.

Thanks,

I am aware of the Screen Saver setup and modify capabilities in the Personalization menu. I am also aware that there is a Preview button there also.
There is a program in the Windows system files that you can put on the Taskbar at the bottom of the screen. You can then click this Icon and manually start the Screen Saver.
I however (in my infinite stupidity) have forgotten the name of this program and where it is located. Can someone please tell me what its name is and where it is located?

Hi,

I'm new to this forum and up until today Ive managed to fix most of my windows problems, but this one has me at my wits end. About a week ago, right after I installed a new DVD Burner and Nero 6 my computer (Windows XP) stopped showing the welcome screen when resuming from screen saver. It will still show the screen when resuming from standby mode, but I want to make sure the screen saver feature is not indicative of something worse. Whats more troubling is that I can go to the registry and set all the right keys and it still wont work. I am setting ScreenSaverIsSecure to 1 and NoAutoReturnToWelcome to 0. After doing this, the window shows the "On Resume...." checkbox is checked but the function is greyed out. Fast-user switching is turned on.

minor issue, since my last windows update, when I turn on my computer it goes to to the Gigabyte/David screen, whereby I need to click the "gigabyte" logo to fully boot-up the computer.

Hi,
I have a Dell 1750 Inspiron laptop that I use "as a desktop" as every piece of hardware is connected to it.
It runs with Windows 7 Home Edition. It has a 4gb memory and a 450gb hard drive which is less than half used.

I have the screen saver set to Photos and usually have a cut-in time of 1 hour idle.

The screen saver cuts in exactly when it should and scrolls through my photos for as long as the laptop is left idle.

However, as soon as I touch the mouse/keyboard, instead of reverting to the "normal" screen the photos disappear, the blank screen fades for a few seconds and then a message appears in a box, saying that the Photos Screen Saver is not responding, and gives the options of either close the program or wait for the programme to respond. Waiting doesn't seem to work so I have to click on close the programme and then cancel the statement that Windows will try to find a solution, because it doesn't!

I have tried to vary the time before the screen saver kicks in, anything from 1 minute to several hours but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Can anyone help please?

A:Photo Screen Saver wont revert back to live screen

Have you checked the timing for when the HDD turns off or Sleep or Hibernation kicks in [I disable both of those and lengthen the time on the HDD to several hours], Control Panel, Power Options?

The reason I mentioned the HDD is the symptoms you mentioned seem to apply. The screen saver could be in memory and not affected by the HDD until it's asked for something.

Tried to set new power options , was able to get SLEEP to show up in "Start" as it was not there before, but once click , the display DID turn off, but wouldn’t turn back on with mouse movement keyboard presses, had to do a hard reboot. Win 10 started without issue and the SLEEP mode was no longer aviable via the power "start" menu.

Hibernation in it self saves everything thats in RAM at the time the system is put into that mode. It should not lock the PC as that wasn't the state it was in before it hibernated. perhaps lock the PC before you push the hibernate button!

I have set up my Win 7 Pro 64-bit screen saver to bring up the password logon screen upon activation of the mouse/keyboard/whatever.

Late last week, whenever I moved the mouse or clicked the keyboard, the screensaver would go directly to the desktop, bypassing the logon screen. I went to the screensaver utility and unchecked and rechecked the 'On resume, display the logon screen' box, selecting 'Apply and OK' each time.

This would work for maybe two or three times and then go back to returning to the desktop.

I've run MalwareBytes, IOBit, and Norton and all come up virus/rootkit free.

Any ideas?

A:Screen Saver to password logon screen failing

There are a few seconds of "grace" time, meaning when the screensaver launches you have a few seconds to "wake it" and go back to your desktop without locking it.

I guess I can assume you're not talking about that, right?

I am having a very wierd issue with vista's screen saver. So basically when I leave the comp idle it goes into screen saver then turns off the monitor after 15 mins. Sometimes, more often than not, I come back and move the mouse and hit a few keys on the keyboard and nothing. The monitor wont come out of standby I try turning it off and back on, and nothing. I have the latest drivers for everything in my system and I checked the power management settings and they both are able to wake the computer up. I have a G15 keyboard and I keep the leds on and when this happens the leds are off and the lazer for the mouse is off too. Any suggestions as to what my problem is would be fantastic!

I have a very strange problem, I'm stumped and would appreciate any help.
On my new HP6910 laptop, when my XP Pro SP3 (system default XP) Screen Saver comes on, the screen has a partial heavily corrupted copy of the bottom taskbar at the top of the screen (!) and when I ctrl-alt-delete and enter my password the taskbar at the bottom is missing all of its text but otherwise looks reasonable. The Oulook, Word, and other started tasks in the taskbar at the bottom of the screen have their icons, just no text, even if there is a group of them and you hover the mouse over the group and they expand. Most of them still work, but Windows Desktop Search (WDS) doesn't work and I have to close them and restart them. This seemed to start a few days after I installed WDS, added a DVI monitor to the docking station and the same day I installed Activesync 4.5. I've reinstalled WDS and removed my wallpaper but this didn't help, I'm about to reinstall Activesync but it takes a few hours to sync for the first time so I thought I would see if anybody had any other ideas before doing this.

despite the fact that i have been trying to boot up win7pro64 in normal mode in my vaio for the past one month, all of my endeavors have failed so far. i am left with nothing else other than going for recovery resulting the loss of all of software (hopefully, i can backup my data by using ubuntu which is present as dual-boot and/or by safe mode which are booting fortunately). i have tried the following so far in safe mode:
# HDD/RAM tests; passed
# malware check by malwarebytes; passed
# reinstalling the graphics driver as i have a doubt that the video driver is not working since screen goes blank instead of getting blue logon screen with user name/icon/password after windows initial boot (the cursor appears on the screen and i can make it move by using touchpad); passed
# start-up repair; failed
# going back to last good config; failed
# restore point; none exists!
# manual update by downloading recent patches from windows update catalog (using a different computer as this did not allow for some weird reason) since the problem started only after recent windows update that failed during installation; failed.

safe mode does not allow me to fix anything, windows update does not work here in addition to some other important functions that could be done in normal mode.

I have a Laptop with a 120GB Solid State Drive. My primary operating system has been Windows 7 Ultimate. Recently I decided to try and Install Windows 8 Pro Along side windows 7 . Dual Boot. I read about Dual Booting in this Official Windows 8 Magazine and it seemed easy. I ran into a few problems:

1. I was able to 'shrink Volume' to create another partition of atleast the 20GB minimum required for windows 8. I did 25GB's because my 120gb solid state drive was almost full with other windows 7 files and partitions. The problem I ran into was in creating a 'New Simple Volume' and formatting my new 25GB's of space. An Error message saying "not enough memory or space available to perform operation" kept popping up.
Am I getting these error messages because I already have 4 different partitions on my drive? The different partitions were A: Windows 7 OS and Files, B: Windows 7 Hibernation, C: Windows 7 Recovery and D: an unknown 8gb primary partition

2. I decided to delete the Windows 7 Recovery partition, because I have my Windows 7 DVD, and I didn't mind re-installing everything if I were to mess up. Plus my OS doesn't run from that partition, and I'll have room to create my new Windows 8 simple volume. (probably a dumb decision)

A:Computer hang at boot menu (1st screen show)

It means severe hardware failure. The problem is that the hardware could be almost anything; even a failing hard drive can cause this as it's probably trying desperately to discover and read the drive before allowing you to access the BIOS or continue with POST.

If this is a laptop, your chances of swapping hardware to fix this are slim, as you can only really replace the RAM or the drive, and either probably is not causing it. If it's a desktop, the problem is that we're looking a very wide range of hardware to swap, so you could working at this for a while and spending an unnecessary amount of money to fix it.

Given that this is an HP, your best bet is to check to see if the warranty is still active on it and then plea for a replacement. They will make every means possible to prevent you from doing so by skirting the issue, but be diligent and patient with them and you'll end up with a working replacement PC in your hands.

I have Windows 10 Home on my laptop. I have created Local Accounts by going to Start > netplwiz and creating some users. Most of the users do not have a Password and are not Administrators. I have also checked the option "Users must enter a user name and password to use this computer". Now the problem is that after a reboot/restart or a boot (i.e. Shutdown and then Power On) the last user that was logged gets automatically logged in. So if User A was last using the laptop, he Shutdowns the laptop and then User B starts the Laptop, the OS directly logs into the User A's account. User B has to log out and then log in as User B. This is contrast to what used to happen with Windows 7/Vista/XP.

Please note that this is a fresh Windows 10 laptop and is not an upgrade from Windows 7/8/8.1.

Can you please suggest me how I will be able to get all the users listed on the Login screen at the time of reboot or boot (i.e. Shutdown and then Power On)? The user has to select his ID and then login. Rather the last user login should not happen automatically.
Any help would be appreciated.

A:Win Home 10 does not show login/sign in screen after boot or reboot

Hi Addverma, welcome to Ten Forums.

The easiest way is to add passwords to all user accounts. If Windows is shut down or restarted from desktop of a local user who has no password, by default Windows will sign this user in when started next time.

Adding password to all users prevents automatic sign-in of last user.

Another option is to not display usernames in sign-in screen as told in this tutorial: Sign in Screen - Do Not Display User Name in Windows 10 - Windows 10 Forums

Notice that Option One in above mentioned tutorial does not work for you because you cannot edit policies in Windows 10 Home. The registry method, Option Two should work in Home Edition, too.

When method in tutorial is used, Windows will not show usernames. All users must enter their username manually, as well as possible password:

I downloaded a free sample of a screensaver from digiscapes.com just to have a look - and then uninstalled it. Now I constantly get a pop up window telling me I'm running an unregistered Buddy Saver screensaver. My husband reinstalled and uninstalled for me, but I'm still living with this Buddy Saver annoyance. How do I get rid of it ?? (I also sent them an email weeks ago to ask what to do but no response). Thanks

Is there any way to load the "Screen Saver Settings" dialog/ control panel at boot-up/ login in a similar fashion to applications?

If not, then would I need to write a software program of some type via OS-specific commands (I presume) for opening this dialog to be executed at boot-up/ login e.g., VB, C, or C++?

Thanks for your replies! :-)

Slowly but surly I am getting the system up and running...now we are in the fine tuning stage...
I now have the screen saver working, but there is one slight catch, after the screen saver has been on for a while and I move the mouse, the screen clears and what is left behind is the log on logo and I have to click on that to get back to the primary screen,
How do not have to go to the log off screen and just continue with my screen/window that I was on before the screen saver kicked in.

Hi, first post here by a rather happy Lenovo Yoga 13 + Windows 8 user.

As the topic says, is it possible to have the lockscreen turn on automatically after a few minutes?

As it is now I can only get to the lock screen after waking up the computer from the screen saver. I would like to have it configured so that the traditional screen saver is bypassed and it goes straight to the lock screen and stays there forever until I swipe it up.

I think the lockscreen is a very beautiful feature and it's great to see all these small notifications. It would be wonderful to just be able to glance at my computer and seeing these notifications without actually having to touch it.

I feel it's kind of useless to only see the lock screen while you're actually logging in, because then you'll see your notifications anyway on your start screen.

A:Can I use the lock screen as a screen saver?

The easiest way is to right click your account icon on top right of Start Screen and Lock it.

Don't know of a way to auto lock.

Yesterday I was downloading something from sharebee.com when i got a popup from the site. the popup's address was a sketchy looking ".info" site and the page was blank except for a small box in the middle. I figured that this was an infected page so i did a google search on it and it showed up as containing "antivirus2008" on some diagnostic site that i do not remember... shortly after this page loaded my computer became really sluggish to the point where i couldnt do anything. so i restarted it.

then i saw somethin i've never seen before. a red window showed up on screen before windows loaded saying that "Trend Chipaway Virus has detected a boot virus on your hard disk" and won't let me load up windows. I tried to boot anyway, but when i click on my username it just logs me right back off. It tells me to insert a bootable floppy disk, which i do not have. I do however have an xp disk. I put that in my disk drive and tried to reinstall windows. I chose to do a repair installation, and it went through the first part of the installation and rebooted. then the setup screen came up and it went through the "collecting information" "dynamic update" and "preparing installation" portions, however once it got to the installing windows section i recieved a fatal error saying "An error has been encountered that prevents Setup from continuing.

Hey,

so I think I may have picked up a virus, not exactly sure, just a gut feeling.

Basically, I left my computer on and left my home at about 6PM today, got back around 12am after getting stuck in this horrible snow storm, come back to find a bunch of weird grid like dotted patterns on my screen. I run dual monitors and the problem exist on both monitors. I took a screenshot with print screen because I am sure it will show up in the screenshot since it doesn't show up at boot up, at the login screen, or even when I CTRL+alt+delete to get to the vista options that offer lock, logout, shutdown, task manager, for some reason that screen displays perfectly fine.

I am not sure what the deal is. I ran a scan with trend micro which found some threats and removed, one of them that stood out to me was "pe_patched_msc_ in explorer.exe which could not be removed. I believe this is the cause since it only seems to affect the explorer (main screen), and I have no problems during boot up or using the screen CTRL+alt+del brings up.

OS: Windows Vista

Any ideas?

Much appreciated,
Vince

Hi,

I cant get into my desktop. When i start my pc XP loads, and it starts the last known good configuration. I then seen the xp loading screen.

Next i should be able to see the login screen, however this is a blank black screen, the mouse is visible and i can move it around the screen, but i cant see anything to log into the desktop.

I dont know why this has happened, it was working last night. The only thing i can think of was my brother switched the power off as it was shutting down. The shut down had automatic updates running (i think) at the time the power switches were turned off.

How do i solve this so i can see the login screen and get into my pc?

In Windows 10 the screen saver option is bured within the lockscreen settings under "screen saver settings". It still doesn't look like it has been updated since 8.1 or maybe even Windows 7. In this day and age with the quality of displays there is no real reason to use a screen saver anymore like there was in the 1990s.
Iwanted to post a poll but the option at the bottom is just a little text box and I'm not sure if i am missing something here or i just don't have that ability.
So, do you still use a screen saver and why or why not?
I don't. I just set my screen to turn off after a given amount of time and then to have it go to sleep. I really don't see any reason to use it and as for aesthetics it just looks dated and boring.

I recently bought a new computer with a 512 MB graphic card. My old computer had a 128 MB card but at the beginning, I only had 8 MB. I was using a screen saver with fish in an aquarium. With only my 8 MB card, the animation was really impressive. I tried my screen saver yesterday with my new 512 MB card and the picture was terrible. There were plenty of horizontal lines on the screen. What could explain this? Could it be that the program wasn't intented for this type of card? In those days, big cards like mine didn't exist.

Files for your screen saver could be all over the place there is a place that part of the screen saver is or might be located but the best way to get your screen saver if you do not have the original file is the manufacturer's site that made the screen saver.

The one way you can start to find it would be to do a search for scr this is the extension for the screen saver but when you find it do a right click on it then properties and look for the web site address for the file.

I wish you good luck.

I hope it isn't something really simple that makes me feel silly. But then again, maybe I do as I'd prefer no major issues. I'm just stumped!

Thanks for any ideas.

The screen saver is not working,
when we go to the screen saver setting - there is a message - "The screen saver can't run because it requires a newer video card or which require Direct 3D"

But it was working a day ago.

Hello Jerin,

Here are some items to check:

What graphics card do you have?Do you have a wireless mouse or keyboard? If so make sure it has they have the latest drivers installed.Have the latest graphics driver installed for it.Refresh or update your WEI score.
Is it just that screen saver, or is it all screensavers including the default one from Vista?

Hope this helps for now,

Shawn

Is it necessary to use a screen saver when you're going to be away for awhile or can you just use the power setting to shut off monitor after 20 minutes. Which is better? I heard that screen savers use a lot of resources. Thanks. Dori
 

A:Screen Saver??

Screen savers were developed to protect older CRT monitors from "burn in." They are unnecessary for modern monitors. Even for the older CRTs, a blank screen was fine, except that they did not have the power saving options we now have.

So, yes, using the power settings for the monitor to save power is best.

I used to get a different screen saver each time before I keyed in my password. Now I get the same one all the time (The Devil's Causeway). How do I go back to getting different screen savers each time before I log in.

I reformatted my wife's computer last week and installed Windows 7 Ultimate. The computer uses a Gigabyte motherboard and I used the driver disc that came with the Gigabyte motherboard. The Display Adapter is a ATI Radeon HD4250 with the ATI Catalyst Control Center. The resolution is 1280 X 1024. When I try to set the Screen Saver, the apply button is greyed out. After pressing OK I go back to the display, but the screen saver never comes on.
Any suggestions?
George

Go to amd.com to get your video drivers, download and install them, restart the pc and see if the screensaver will run.

Never use video drivers off the cd, always go to the manufacturer`s website. In this case amd.com
