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!!

post back if you have any problems

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.

When i turn my computer on the screen is black for awile then it comes on where i can see my screen saver why does it do this


Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on,
and keep pressing the 'F8' key until you see a "start-up" menu.
Choose "Start in Safe Mode".
Does the screen now look normal?
If so, set the "screen-resolution" to 800-by-600.
Then shutdown and restart.

When I turn on my computer, it says it is "locked". It also asks if I want to "switch users". I am the only user. Secondly, I would like to know how to keep my screen saver on at all...


When you set the screen saver there will be an option for the computer to be locked after like 15 minutes idleness. You need to disable it to keep your screen saver on at all times. It is either in your graphic properties settings about screen savers or the power options you can open with a button on the dialog box of screen saver settings or you can open the power options from control panel. If you tell me which operating system you are using I will show you the detailed steps.

How to unlock a computer


If your question is about the setup of BIOS then try this whether it's helpful to you or not? open the CPU and remove the battery from the motherboard and keep it for a few minutes and fix it in your system(CPU) Start up your system and see whether it's working or not? Else, when you are unable to log on to the computer to the domain. Press Ctrl + Alt + Del simultaneously to unlock the computer. This behavior can occur for either of the following reasons: 1. When the default screen saver is set to use a non-existent screen saver program. 2. When you use a corrupted screen saver that is password protected. Only or an administrator can unlock the computer.
All the Best!

Hi,

It is possible that your system boot was setup to safe mode everytime it boots up. You may try the steps below.

2. Go to Start then Run

3. On the run box type msconfig

4. Look for the tab boot.ini , under this tab uncheck the box that says safeboot then click apply

5. Restart the computer.

Keep me posted.

Thanks.
