Screen Saver Corrupting Display Of Screen

Q: Screen Saver Corrupting Display Of Screen

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.
All help is greatly appreciated!

I did an upgrade from Win 7 , and Screen Saver / Turn off display after 5 mins was working under Win 7 64 bit
As my title suggest Screen Saver / Lock screen Slideshow / Turn off display after 5 mins are not working under Win 10
The Lock screen Slideshow is there when Win 10 starts but only shows ONE image, never moves to another.
THINGS I've done so far to get any of these working ...Screen Saver / Lock screen Slideshow / Turn off display after 5 mins
I’ve turned off all the Wake on lan functions
Tried different folder/ images for the lockscreen Slideshow ,window spotlight and picture
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.
Anyone have a clue how to get all of these working. Really would like my display to turn off after 5 mins , and the Screen saver to work , the Lockscreen I'm not fussed about

I have a screen saver that I've used for years in both Win98 and XP. It's now running on my root drive (C) just fine. I had problems with my present copy of Win XP Home so I bought a new copy of XP Home with all the service packs in it. I installed it on another drive so that I could install all my programs before transfering it to my root drive.

When I installed my favorite screen saver there was no problem. However the 'Display Properties' window where the scren savers are selected does not show this new saver as a selection. The .scr file was installed in the 'Windows' folder on the drive just like it is on the copy of XP where it works fine. Since several people say the saver apps are found in the 'System32' folder I copied the .scr file to 'System32' but that didn't help.

Does anyone have any idea why the 'Display Properties' doesn't see the .scr file and put it in the list of savers?

I can open the saver by clicking on the scr file but then there are no settings or timing functions and when I move my cursur and the saver goes off the 'Display Properties' shows the selection for a saver is set to 'none'.

Strange how it works fine in one copy of the OS but not in this new copy.
 

A:Screen Saver in XP not found by Display.

You should be able to set up the screensaver by right clicking on it and clicking install. If that doesn't work try putting it in WINNT in the C drive.

I hope Windows 8 will have the ability in screen saver display the filename and path of pictures it sure helps to identify names and dates of old pictures in my screen saver.

Hi
You can still use the old ssmypics.scr (My Pictures Slideshow) screen saver in Windows 8.
If you have access to an XP system, you can copy the ssmypics.scr screen saver file from the Windows\System32 folder and move the file to your Windows 8 system. Place it in the same folder (If you are using the 64bit version of Windows 8, place
the file in the Windows\SysWOW64 folder).
If you do not have access to the file, you can download a copy from the following link.

ssmypics.scr

Download the file to your Desktop.
Right Click the file and select Properties.
Click the Unblock button.
If you wish, run a scan on the file with your antivirus software.
Move the file to the proper folder.


You can now go to Personalize/Screen Saver. The screen saver will show up as
My Pictures Slideshow. Select the Settings button in the screen saver to see the options.

All of my "Idle" settings take effect despite not being idle. I have set my power managment settings to turn off my screen after being idle for 20 minutes. Rather than turning the screen off after being idle for 20 minutes, the screen turns off every 20 minutes regardless of whether or not I've been idle. The screen immediately comes back on as it typically turns off in the middle of my typing an email or a forum post. I have tried this on various time settings, as low as a minute and as high as 20 minutes. It seems that my system activity is not recognized (i.e. my typing and mouse usage) unless the system is specifically looking for activity, such as when the power management system has taken affect and the screen saver has come on, or the display shuts down, etc. This isn't a huge deal except that, when my settings included going to my lock screen I had to put my credentials in every time that the system shut off the display. I've read the solutions that suggest setting all of my power managmeent options to "never". This is simply not an acceptable solution. If I am using my computer in a public place and I get up to get a cup of coffee, I want my computer to lock itself after 5 minutes of inactivity. Additionally, if I'm in the middle of taking notes at a lecture, I want my display to shut down and conserve power after I have been idle for a time.

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.

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.

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.

You may need to go to Control Panel and then Power Options and increase (or set to never) the settings to turn off monitor.

U might need to Run System Restore, which enables the system to go back to a date before U had a problem. Everyone forgets about the most popular fix. Is simply running System Restore, which seems to undo just about anything for most folks.

Hello,

Would anyone have any idea why the screen saver would just stop working in Vista? I've triple and more checked the settings to ensure that it's set to run after just a minute or two. For some reason it just doesn't even start up.

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.

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.

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've had several instances lately, when I got to move my mouse to disengage my screen saver the computer freezes for a good minute and a half before returning to my desktop. Today, I went to preview the screen saver through display properties to see just how often this happens but my comp locked up after clicking preview. I did get this message 3D fly objects is not responding. I clicked end task but it took a while to unlock. Also, shortly after I received the message "Run a dll as an App". I've never seen this before. Not sure if this is connected but, With help from the site I deleted some spy ware last week. Also, sometimes when I shut down my computer the computer freezes on a blue screen and never turns itself off. I eventually just hit the surge protecter switch.

Okay, sounds silly, but after multiple attempts to activate my screen saver on my new HP p6649c running Win7 with an ATI Radeon HD4200 graphics card, I can't activate it.

I've rebooted multiple times. I've reset the screen saver settings multiple times, clicked on "apply" and "OK" and no dice. I've set the options to my own pictures as well as the default screen saver images. I have also checked the power management settings but they appear normal. Nothing seems to affect it so the monitor just sits with my desktop on perpetually.

Are there some settings on the monitor itself I should modify?

Any ideas?
