    Screen saver? What do you need a screen saver for? Just set the screen to turn off after so many minutes. That was a feature for those old boxy monitors from the 90's to prevent icons and backgrounds being burned into the screen permanently. Are you connecting your laptop to an old monitor?

I have A Dell 1720 when I unplug the ac I get a black screen but the laptop is steel running but if I goto safe mode the screen well come on. Replaced battery same problem.

You might have "Sleep mode" or "Blank screen" mode in "on battery status.
Right click on the desktop, click "personalize". Click "Screen Saver", click "Change power settings". Click "Choose when to turn off the display". You will find many options you want "on battery" or "Plugged in".
Hope this helps

When I turn my mini on, I get to the Windows welcome screen and it stops there. Is there anything I can do?

Try booting the laptop up in safe mode. Upon booting up press the F8 key until it opens up an option for safe mode. If you then do get the laptop to load up to windows go into the My Computer and right click on the hard drice icon and go down to properties. You will then click on the Tools tab and then run the Check Disk option. It will ask you to reboot the laptop so it can run the check disk. Hopefully this will fix the issue. If for some reason it doesnt go back into safe mode and scan your laptop for any possible infections with your anti virus.

Best of luck...

Acer Aspire 5535-5050 only starts in "safe mode"

when you get to safe mode try to do a system restore to a date that the computer worked............on xp it will give you a screen to enter safemode with yes or no options ........choose no to go diorectly to system restore...............if not xp look for system restore in the system tools folder on start menu or in control panel............the screen saver error is most likely because you are in safe mode.

I need to restore icons on desktop, tried to do so, nothing works. The screen saver has covered the entire desktop face. cannot remove it.

I am not sure that the screen saver is making problems.
Screen savers turn on after at least one minute of no activity, and turn off when you move your mouse or press a button on your keyboard.

Start your PC in 'SAFE MODE' . Are there your desktop icons?
Disable or uninstall the screen saver and and restart in 'Normal mode'.

this is what sounds like a trojan or for of spyware, probably disguised as a screen saver. If you have no anti virus installed download this programme for free If you have no anti spyware programme download this for free. on the laptop press Ctrl, Alt & delete or right click on task bar to get to the task manager and on the processes tab look for the scrensaver.exe or similair that is running, click on it and press end process. this should allow you to work with windows Install the programmes, then go to system restore tab in my computer>right click>properties>system restore tab and click 'turn off system restore'(this will stop any virus or spyware backups reinstalling). Run both the programmes and remove any spyware or virus. If it still appears you may have to uninstall it safe mode, which is press F8 key on start up and select 'start windows in safe mode' and run the antivirus and spyware programmes again.
