If you're looking for a folder in which to make a screen saver accessible,

drag ad drop the file [or unzip the file] into: Logical Drive, i.e.,

Local Disk C:\ WINDOWS.

Once you place the screen saver into the WINDOWS folder it'll be

accessible from START.....CONTROL PANEL.....DISPLAY or

Right Click an empty spot on your desktop.....click PROPERTIES

.....SCREEN SAVER.....then click the downward pointing arrow

under heading "screen saver" and it should appear in that list.

Why does my computer screen keep popping back to screen-saver regardless of what site I'm on?


You have obviously set the timing of the screen saver wrong. Search you computer for the screen saver settings and adjust them accordingly.

Please check my youtube video to understand my problem http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=43ppZNyMACY


Great presentation of your problem.
One thing I would check is the screen saver. You say as long as you use the computer it looks normal. Look at your screen saver settings to see if the lined appearing coincide with the screen saver time.
With computer parts, failure on a periodic basis (based on time) usually indicated a heat problem. This does not appear to be the problem in your case, as you say you can use the computer for an extended period without a problem. This is why I was suggesting a screen saver problem. You might even try a different screen saver just to test this. Possibly the part of windows that controls the screen saver (and don't ask me where that is, 'cause I haven't a clue) is corrupt.

Good luck.

    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.

    Screen saver keeps poping up if i stop typing and i have 2 keep unlocking screen everytime i get back on computer and also slide show comes up when its sitting 4 awhile


    xp:
    1. right click on unused space on your desktop and click properties to bring the display properties, (you can also go into start>control panel and double click on display)
    2.then go to the screen saver tab and click on it
    3. modify the time for screen saver to come up and uncheck the box that says "on resume password protect" so you're not asked for a password everytime your screen saver is on and you're returning to work on your computer.

    vista:

    it's a bit different than xp but similiar in some sense..
    when you right click on the desktop go to "Personalize" to bring the display properties and then go to screen saver and modify the wait time and password protected settings.

    hope that helps!!

    Microsoft wireless 4000


    Screen saver mode, as you know, is entered when the computer senses no activity (including mouse) for a defined period of time. for some reason, the computer thinks there's been some kind of activity. If you have an extreamly sensitive mouse, vibrations could be being picked up "tricking" the computer into thinking there is activity.

    The other possibility is that the computer might not be able to respond to the mouse if it went into screen saver mode (perhaps a preference setting with the wireless mouse) and has decided that while operating using a wireless mouse screen saver will be deactivated. Look into your preferences or settings relating to the wireless mouse.
