Re: screensaver won't work
Well, It's seems you guys are new at this... In order to work you need to setting it. Closed all programs and right click go to properties. Then click on Screen Saver and chose the disired screen saver you wanted and set the minutes you like and click Apply... And that it!

First,turn the power off on the screen. & unplug the screen from the computer.After it's disconnected turn it on. This is to see if this screen saver thing is the monitor or the pc doing it. The Monitor, if working correctly will say "No Signal". ONLY. You should be able to get to the menu here. If the Screen saver thing is only present when connected to the PC then its not the monitor but more than likely a problem with Windows XP configuration. Here is your user manual: http://support.gateway.com/s/Manuals/Monitors/8511446.pdf
If you can set up your monitor now, do so. Make sure the language part of it is set to English settings.
cb5547, Do you SEE the strange "no signal""no input" messages when other programs are running such as MSword, Excel, IE8, ? I would guess that when very strange things begin to occur "ON SCREEN" of an LCD display, that something might be about to go bad in the unit's power supply. In any case a technician should evaluate it for you. In the mean time hook_up (swap-in) a working monitor to prove that your PC is working correctly. report back here with a new comment on fixya and I will suggest a few things you can try. I'm 12fixlouie
you go to control panel starting your pc ,, then display settings,, from there,, screen saver tab, then make screen saver to none, and click on button power,, there you make everything to never,, and then see. it should work good
This sounds like a power save issue or a screen saver problem and they are both on the same panel I will lead you to
Right click on an EMPTY part of the desktop then click properties
Click the screensaver tab then the POWER settings.
Make sure all the boxes say NEVER then APPLY.
Its up to you if you want it to ask for a password when it comes off the screensaver (my pref is for no) then click apply then ok.
When you are back at the screensaver tab change both the screensaver to one of the other windows defaults and also check how long before it goes to screensaver and maybe up that to at least 15 minutes unless you have a plasma screen in which case no more than 5 minutes.
you may need to click apply again then OK
now sit back and wait. and whilst you do that check the manual and controls for the monitor in case it too has a built in saver and if so make any changes you need there.
If you found this information useful then please click
1. Power setting/screen saver - this could be build into the monitor or a setting in the power options in the control panel.
2. improper setting for the monitor....this could be the refresh rate most likely.....right-click in a blank area of the desktop, go to properties, settings tab, advanced.....there should be an option in one of the tabs that has an option for refreash rate...make sure it is set to 60.....
If not one of these two things, than it is a faulty monitor......probably not worth getting fixed....hopefully still under warranty??
