To change your screen saver, right click on the clear area of your desktop and and click on properties. Then, at the top info bar, click on the screen saver button and select a screen saver from the list that you want.
For the blinking light on your modem, it is supposed to blink, and if you want to, you could move it a certain way where you won't see it blinking.

If you are using WINXP, right click on the open desktop. From the pull-down menu, select PROPERTIES. From the PROPERTIES window, select the SCREEN SAVER tab. Uncheck the "On resume, password protect" check box. If you are using WIN 7, go to CONTROL PANEL, then APPEARANCE and PERSONALIZATION, then PERSONALIZATION. At the bottom, select SCREEN SAVER. In the SCREEN SAVER SETTINGS window, uncheck the "On resume, password protect" check box. This will allow you to wake up from screen saver without having to use password.

My Monitor keeps blinking off and digital pops up in the corner of my screen


Is that your screen saver. You can set it to not come on so frequently by right clicking desktop and going properties, screen saver, then change it to come on say every hour or something. If you get something saying " no signal input " It means there is something wrong internally. Could be graphics card, ram, motherboard screws and other things.

The monitor keeps going to sleep mode when you turn the computer. this just started


Well Pebbles lets try this and see. Click on your start button down there, then go to Control Panel and Click that.When Control Panel opens Click on Appearance & Themes, Click on Display and then Screen Saver tab. Down at the bottom is the Monitor Power button, Click that. Now there are tabs at the top, go to the Hibernate Tab and Click that, Now Clear the Hibernation Box, now go back up to the tabs and go to Advanced Tab and clear both option boxes. Okay now go to the Power Schemes Tab and clicik the blue arrow, scroll up and down till you see the never box and Click it, Make sure that it is Marked. Now your Monitor will never turn off until you turn it off on the Monitor itself. Now do the same thing for the Hard Disk Turn off, Click Never. And now your at System Standby, Click Never also. Click OK, and now your back at Display Properties. Here you can change your Screen Saver or Desk Top Background if you want to. Click OK when your done and your Done. Let me know if that helped and don't forget to rate my help, Good or Bad. Good Luck.
