A:Screen Saver Window 7 Logon Screen Slideshow

Hello ZMan, and welcome to Seven Forums.

You will not be able to have a slideshow with the logon screen saver. As in the tutorial, it can only be a blank black screen if enabled. Anything else, and you get that message in the NOTE box at the top of the tutorial.

Sorry,

We recently reformatted my Mom's computer and cut down a lot of the fluff in Windows and all the other programs so it can actually run at a usable speed. But now, she doesn't have access to the slideshow screensaver option (select a folder and the screensaver is a slideshow of all the pictures in the folder).

Is there a way to recover this? In "Display Properties-Screen Saver" - it doesn't come up at all.

If not, what are some good, free, and relatively easy to use programs that aren't horribly bulky or full of crap to use for this? I mean, ideally it'd be the same thing as she used to do through Windows -- select a folder and be done with it, but I'm willing to try some other stuff.

Suggestions, please!

I'm running Vista Enterprise, fully patched. I have a 128MB video card and 2GB of RAM. When I try to use the screen saver "photos" the screen saver will start, but the photos will flash constantly black-photo-black-etc. When I preview the slide show, this does not happen. I've moved around the start time of the screen saver, to make sure that nothing else starts up at the same time.

Why is this happening???

I have about 1,500 pictures that I want to use for my screen saver's slideshow. I want them to be displayed for about 2-3 seconds each.

The problem is that Windows XP allows me to set the slider at 6 seconds minimum.

Is it possible to get around this?

Thanks!

a friend told me how to set up my screensaver so that it scrolls thru all my pictures in "my pictures" folder. I've done so, but there's quite a delay between pictures, it doesn't seem like it's showing pictures from the whole folder, sometimes the pictures are very small off to one corner, and in-between pictures the screen is blank for a bit and usually has a symbol on it such as a musical note, "exit", a figure running, etc. My friend seems to have hers set up the same way, but it doesn't have these problems. It just scrolls thru her pictures, one after the other, with the pictures taking up the whole screen.

My first issue is that my screen saver doesn't even turn on. I have it set to 20 minutes of inactivity and the screen saver will kick in, then 40 minutes later its suppose to shut the monitor off. I've left the room with the monitors on and upwards of an hour and all the computer has done was went to sleep.

I do, however, have my slide show changing every 3 minutes. I don't think this would effect the screen saver but I figured I would throw it out there.

Any ideas on why the screen saver isn't turning on and my monitors won't turn off (I notice this issue on my laptop too occasionally by the way.)? I'm on and off my desktop a lot, and I would hate for something to happen to them (Since I dropped a pretty penny on them) because windows wasn't doing what its suppose to do or I turned on/off the wrong thing.

And another side question, does anyone have any issues with the clock changing time? Both my computers randomly change times on me, and its getting frustrating.

Thanks for any help in advance.

I am in need of some help.
I just upgraded to a new Dell i7 XPS with win 7 pro, I hate win 10.
Anyway I have been running a program called Blue Iris for some IP cams I have watching the front door and driveway and yard.
What I want to do is use a 24" TV to monitor the cameras via a window in the Blue Iris program on the TV always on yet be able to use a screen saver with password on my primary monitor to keep my PC secure when Im not around.
I have the dual monitor on and can open the BlueIris software and drag the window over to the TV to view and its all good while I use my monitor for other purposes. I had the monitor set to sleep after 30 minutes with password on wake but it shut off the dispaly on the TV as well.

The TV is plugged directly into the graphics card, Nvidea, which I dont think is where I need to try and solve this.

I have tried reading thru the tutorials here and searching but Im not seeing any related issue I can glean info from.

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.

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?

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?

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 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.

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.

Today I set up a 2nd monitor for my PC, but discovered my graphics tablet spans across both the screens, essentially halving the size of the canvas space for drawing. Is there any way I can restrict the tablet to using only 1 of my screens?

I use a Vistablet. There are no settings in the tablet settings that say anything about screen settings.

First of all; Thanks to anyone taking the time to read this and help me with my minor issue!

I have been running dual screen setup for awhile now and early on I realized that I had to set the monitor on the left to the 'Main Display' so that tiled wide resolution images would span across both monitors.

after a time i realized that this inconvenienced me in several ways.

How might one set the main display to the right hand monitor while having the image for the wallpaper start on the far left corner?

I have spent days on the net trying to find a solution to my problem.
When I first setup the slideshow it worked fine.
Then, out of the blue, it stopped working (due to an update I thought)
But since then it comes and goes. It can work for a few hours but soon goes back to sleep mode instead of the lock screen slideshow!
I?ve triple checked the settings, uninstalled and reinstalled the slideshow, changed the image folder etc.
I?ve even changed and re-changed the NoLockScreen setting in the registry.
In short, nothing works.
Has anybody any new ideas on the matter?

A:Lock screen slideshow not working (intermittant!)

I have tried a couple of things since yesterday:I removed the NoLockScreen key from the registry.

I also disactivated the automatic time/date setting for the clock (as advised on another thread - no I don't understand the link either).

After reboot the lockscreen slideshow worked once but has since resorted to sleep mode, as before!!??

What is interesting to note is that if I force the lockscreen (windows+L) it works fine but asks for a password on exit, even though it is set not to (and otherwise does'nt ask, on boot for instance)

So I've noticed that whenever you have the Lock Screen Slideshow enabled, the ScreenSaver gets disabled, and vice versa (whenever you have a ScreenSaver enabled, your Lock Screen Slideshow gets disabled). Is this a bug in Windows 8.1, or is there a reason why Microsoft set it this way? (I honestly don't see what the reason could be for this).

And is there a work-around that I can do to be able to have both enabled?

Thank you

Hi

I hope one of you experts can advise!

I'm running a relatively modern desktop, with a SSD dedicated to my operating system; and have just upgraded to Windows 8.1 64 bit, from Windows 8

Having selected the option to run a slideshow on my Lock Screen, using images from a specified folder, I find that when I boot up, only the default image is displayed - The slide show does not run.
However, if I return to the Lock Screen setting up page, and press the Winkey and L keys simultaneously, I find that my PC returns to the Lock Screen, and the slide show runs perfectly.
So why does the slideshow not run, from boot up!

A:Windows 8.1 - Lock Screen Slideshow fails to run

Hello Theo,

In Windows 8/8.1, there are two lock screens.

One is for the current user that is signed in and locked the PC.

The other is the default lock screen when no user is signed in.

The desktop slideshow will only play on the lock screen for the user that has it turned on, signed in, and locked the PC.

Hope this helps,
Shawn

Unfortunately, Musicmatch Jukebox does not currently support the ability to run visualizations full screen. If you would like to try to run them full screen anyway, you may be able to to go to "Media Window" from the View menu to bring up the Media Window (or double click inside the Media Window on the Player), then resize the window so that it fills the whole screen.

Hi all

I have a problem with my fresh install of Windows 8.1. In the settings menu I have enabled the option to play a slideshow on the lockscreen and that when my PC is inactive it will show the lock screen instead of turning off the screen
For testing purposes I have set the screen turn off timer to 1 minute, but here's what happens:
After that one minute, the screen will dim slightly for a brief moment as if it wants to turn off the screen/go to the lockscreen slideshow. Then one minute later, it will do the exact thing again. Like it's being waked the second it wants to turn off the screen
Is anyone able to help me? It would be greatly appreciated
Thanks

A:Laptop won't turn off screen and play slideshow

It would be better to make a Photo Gallery Screensaver and use that, just point it to the pics you want to use in the screensaver setup.

I think the very settings you used to set up the Lockscreen Slideshow are preventing it from Locking. I don't know if you can tell your system to go to a Lockscreen after a certain period, it's either a screensaver or OFF. I'll try to set this up on my test machine and see if the same thing happens.

hey there,

i got a problem with a dual screen setup. when i boot my computer and turn on monitors my 2nd monitor doesnt stay on. he usualy turns black. then i gotta turn em off and on again like two times before he stays on. when he stays on i can hear a very silent peep sound commin from somewhere. since i got somewhat bad hearing i cant tell where it is commin from. last 2 days the monitor also started flickering for a few seconds.

Since i couldnt find anything on the web and dont know what is making the monitor do that, i figured i would ask you guys here

So here is what i did so far. I checked graphic drivers and the connections. nothin changed.

OS: Windows 7 64bit

I use my primary mostly for browsing, msn, music players, Ventrilo etc etc,
I want to use my secondary Monitor for gaming Watching Videos.

However, when i want to use something Full screen on my secondary monitor it goes full screen on the primary monitor.
I cant also run it in windowed mode and stretch it out to full screen, it does not allow me to do that, it goes back to the size of my primary Monitor.

Is there an Way to achieve this?

Ps.
I want this since i play mostly with fullscreen borderless or in windowed mode so i can still browse the internet or adjust music/ventrillo settings.
I dont want to have an Taskbar below the game, so thats why i need it on the Second Monitor.

A:Dual screen, unable to full screen on second monitor

Hi welcome to Seven Forums

I am not sure what you are trying to do, the primary monitor (usually the largest) is for gaming and the secondary is for extras.

You say you want to play games full screen on your secondary monitor? Why not reverse the screens so the larger monitor is primary and the secondary is the smaller. Then your games and movies will still be running fine on the large monitor and your web browser, explorer, email ect. is on the smaller monitor.

"I dont want to have an Taskbar below the game, so thats why i need it on the Second Monitor." If the game is full screen the taskbar shouldn't be showing or if you still want to have the screen in a window, use the 'Auto-hide the taskbar' option so it disappears when not in use.

N.B - I have 2 different screens with the same resolutions as yours, using the 560ti and it works fine.

RIGHT click an empty spot on the desktop.Choose Personalize.Choose Screensaver.Click the drop down arrow under Screensaver, select Photo Gallery.A preview will be shown in the box. Since this will be from the default setting, pictures on the C drive, he will need to click Settings/Browse in order to choose the storage drive pictures folder.After he does that, click Save.If he does not want to use all the photos, he can create a folder and copy the photos he does want to use to that folder. He can then navigate to that folder using the method I described.

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.

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.

Should I use one or is it not needed?

A:Screen Saver

Depends on your personal preferences. I personally do not use one, and I just let my monitor go to sleep or I turn it off.

Just an annoyance BUT when I click on " Personalization > Screen Saver" it take the settings window 30 to 60 seconds to open up. What's up with that ?

Do other programs and windows take this long to open as well?

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 use my pictures as a screen saver, but it won't ever turn off, I don't want it to sleep because it takes to long to boot up again, any other suggestions? I have Vista. I didn't have this problem with windows xp. I want into prefrences and just told it when to stop the screen saver.

I don't really understand what it is you want, I have my Pictures folder as the Screen Saver and it is set to activate after 10 mins of the computer being idle all other power savings are set to Never, whenever I want to use the computer again it's just a question of moving the mouse and the monitor is back to what it was either the desktop or if I left a program or forum open it would be back to that.

I have Windows XP. I noticed recently that my screen saver is not kicking in after the required time I have entered (30 minutes). I read something about a dialog box for SP1 or SP2 for Windows XP. Unless there is some window open or application running that I am not aware of, there is no dialog box running. Any suggestions. I've run a hijack log if it's needed.

Thanks

I have seen a wireless Microsoft USB mouse cause this issue before.
Had me stumped for a long time too!
Do you have a wireless USB mouse? If so, unplug it and try a $5 standard PS/2 mouse. I bet it works then
