Question about Computers & Internet

1 Answer

My screen saver won't come. I see a preview on it, but it won't come on automatically. I saw on a help page that Media Center might be causing a problem with it, as I recently added my own music to my computer. What can I do to get my screen saver to work once again?

My Computer Completely Freezes Everytime I Listen To Music


You can download a software called CCleaner. This helps clearing all the temporary files in the computer. Once all the temporary files are cleared the problem won't occur. If the problem persists, then listen to music in lighter players like VLC or Winamp.

If I leave my computer unattended for maybe 15 min. this monitor turns itself off. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks, brumeister



Screen savers can help protect your monitor from wear by showing a constantly changing display when your computer is not being used. Screen savers can be simple, like the Blank screen saver that turns off your monitor to save energy. To change your screen saver 1. Right-click your desktop, and then click Properties.
2. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Screen Saver tab.
3. Click the Screen saver drop-down box, and then click a screen saver.
4. Click the Preview button to see how the screen saver will appear on your monitor.
5. Move your mouse or press a key to return to the Display Properties dialog box. To try a different screen saver, return to step 3. 6. Click the Settings button to change the standard behavior of the screen saver you selected. (Each screen saver has its own settings dialog box.) Then, click OK.
7. In the Wait box, type the number of minutes the computer should wait to start the screen saver after you last touched the keyboard or mouse.
8. If you are the only person who uses your computer and you are not concerned about security, clear the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. Otherwise, leave this check box selected. Note: If your computer is joined to an Active Directory, the Fast Users Switching feature will be disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business, and it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. However, disabling the Fast User Switching feature is not the default setting. Almost all computers in home environments will have Fast User Switching enabled. When Fast User Switching is enabled, you'll see the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. If you're part of a domain, you'll see the On resume, password protect check box.
9. Click OK.

I get a blue screen that says my computer was shut down to protect from crashing, and it says it dumped my memory


I recently saw a very tricky virus that made it look like my computer was getting blue screen of death. It was acutaly a virus that had replaced my screen saver. They had even faked the screens that made it look like it was rebooting. I had also been locked out of the screen saver functions so I couldn't turn it off.

I booted in safe mode and removed the current screen saver.
I also ran a full virus scan.

Blue screens are normally caused by corrpted system files or faulty hardware.
But I'd do the screen saver test first.

Screen saver no longer works


Well, you have two options to look at:

1st one:
Since your laptop is Dell, I presume that you use Dell Media Software.
Other people had the same problem too. Try disabling this program to check if your screensaver is working.
Other programs that might conflict with the screensaver might be:
1. Ehtray.exe.
2. DVDLauncher.exe
3. Power DVD
4. PCM service.

Otherwise there is a known bug:

Try updating (flashing) the BIOS with an updated version. This seems to be a problem Dell was aware of an made available a "fix."
