    Screensaver not working

    In Windows XP, right click on your desktop somewhere, and choose Properties. On the Screen Saver tab, pick another Screen Saver from the drop down, and set the Wait time to 1 minute. Click OK and see if it works. You may have to drill into "Settings" next to the screen saver. Depending on your hardware, the 3D screen saver might be too much for it to handle. Try disabling some things in settings or choosing a different Screen Saver.
    Hope this helps! If so, please give a rating!

    How to turn off the power saver mode on a compaq SR5510F PC

    You can access these settings from the control panel. Following pictures will give you the idea what to do:



    Make sure that the Classic View is enabled. The printscreens are from Vista but equally valid for XP and Windows 7; only user interface is different.

    If your system came with preinstalled utility for power management, you can use it instead to set power options. For more information refer to the user manual for this system which can be found here.

    I want to install the bluetooth software in my laptop.

    Good morning! I presume that you have the CD driver of the Bluetooth software that you want to install in your computer, if there is. then put it in the CD drive of your computer, if the CD driver have the autoset-up configuration then bluetooth installation menu will appear automatically on the screen of your computer then just follow/click the installation instructions. If CD driver have no autoset-up config, then we have to click Start icon then click Run then Browse then look in the CD drive then click Open then locate the Set-up.exe icon then click OK. best regards

    It could be that the screen is at the correct resolution, but the icons are just set to display larger (Vista allows this). Right-click on the desktop (NOT over any icons), and select "View". there you can select the size of the desktop icons.

    How do i turn on the bluetooth on my hp compaq 6720s

    Not all compaq 6720s come with bluetooth module, but you can go to Control Panel --> System --> Hardware --> Device Manager, check whether your laptop is bluetooth ready, refer picture below,

    If you can see the Bluetooth Devices in Device Manager, means your laptop is bluetooth ready. Then on your bluetooth by click the wireless button and you willl see blue light is on.

    Check this icon at the right bottom corner of your desktop,
    If BWT is disabled (red logo), enable it by right-clicking the Bluetooth icon and selecting Start the Bluetooth Device. The logo will change from red to white. Then you can use the Bluetooth Setup wizard to configure the service and security features as follows:
    1. Right-click the Bluetooth icon, and then select Explore My Bluetooth Places.
    2. Right-click the My Bluetooth Places icon in the Folders pane of Windows
    Explorer and select Bluetooth Setup Wizard to begin the configuration process.
