Screensaver doesn't work on LX6200-01 Gateway computer

Posted by on

  • Joe Noble Apr 06, 2009

    I have the same GW LX6200-01. Whenever I reboot, the Screensaver time setting goes back to 1 Minute. When I change it to something other than 1 minute it works fine. Shutting down and restarting makes it reset to 1 minute.



    This computer runs Vista 64bit.



    You can get to the setting by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing Personalize. You then select Screen Save from the dialog box that comes up.

    Did you do this: Right-Click on your Desktop and select Properties, then select Screen Saver and then set it to one listed? Select the Windows one and click Preview. If you are using a custom screen saver program (something you downloaded), I probably won't be much help. If you did, make sure it's compatible with your operating system (XP?)

If I remember right screen saver is in control panel. There are settings for the start time and I think there is a setting for "never". Or maybe that is on a Mac. I use Macs mostly. Anyway, I know there are settings in there as to when the screen saver will activate. If it is set for 1hr, it will come on if the mouse is not touched for 1hr. Maybe yours is set this way.

Getting locked out of your Gateway computer can be frustrating, especially when you have school or work deadlines.
You can get locked out of your Gateway computer in cases where a password-protected screensaver became corrupt, or if the you have set the default screensaver to use a screensaver that does not exist.
Gateway computers come with Microsoft Windows XP and 2000, including the professional versions of both.
Knowing how to unlock your a Gateway computer can save you time and irritation.

Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your keyboard simultaneously to unlock your Gateway computer.
Type the last logged-on user's login information and click "OK" if you see a locked computer message along with "Only domain/username or an administrator can unlock this computer."
Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys once again when you see the Unlock Computer window disappear.
Log on as usual.
Method 2
Shut down the locked Gateway computer by using the Microsoft Windows Resource Kit Shutdown tool. This tool shuts down and restarts a Windows 2000- or NT 4.0-based Gateway computer. Note the dialog box that comes up called System Shutdown.
Wait for the shutdown timer to run out and see the Welcome to Windows box displayed on the screen.
Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete," which unlocks the computer.
Log onto your Gateway computer normally.
Method 3: Backup, Modify and Restore the Registry
Click "Start" and "Run," then type in the command below in the field box exactly as printed:
%SystemRoot%\system32\restore\rstrui.exe
Click "Create a Restore Point," then click "Next" on the Welcome to System Restore page that appears.
Type any name for the restore point, then click "Create" on the Create a Restore Point page. Click "Close" after creating the restore point.
Perform this procedure before you make changes to the registry, just in case you make an error; otherwise, incorrect registry changes could create serious problems with your computer.
Click "Yes" if you receive a prompt to turn on System Restore at this point.
Clear the "Turn Off System Restore" check box by clicking on it, then click "OK," and repeat.
Click "Start," then type "regedt32.exe" (without the quotes) in search field box to modify the registry and unlock the computer. Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
Locate the scrnsave.exe value under the registry key below:
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop
Click "String" on the Edit menu, type "logon.scr" (without the quotes), then click "OK."
Look for the ScreenSaverIsSecure value, then click "String" on the Edit menu, type "0," then click "OK."
Quit the Registry Editor
Click "Start" and "Run," then type the command below exactly as printed to restore the registry, then click "OK":
%SystemRoot%\System32\Restore\Rstrui.exe
Click "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" on the Welcome to System Restore page, then click "Next."
Note your computer may already be selected to restore to an earlier time--in this case, just click "Next."
Click the system checkpoint on the Select a Restore Point page.
Click "Guided Help (Registry Backup)," then click "Next" on the "On This List Select the Restore Point" area.
Click "OK" if you see a System Restore message listing all the configuration changes it will make.
Click "Next" when you come to the Confirm Restore Point Selection page.
System Restore will now restore the Windows XP configuration you had at an earlier time, and then it will restart your Gateway computer.
Log onto your computer as usual, and then click "OK" when you see the System Restore Confirmation page.

I need help about my screensaver, that doesn't work, I have windows 7 and the HP support can't fix it. If I choose any opcion of the default windows 7 screensaver and I prove it with the preview...


There is probably something stopping your system going to sleep. Do you have a cheap optical mouse that creeps across the screen when untouched or a dodgy wireless keyboard and mouse that continues to poll the USB port to keep itself and the PC awake?

I would first try a system restore back to the time it worked.
If that doesn't work, scan for viruses and other malware.
