Acer screen saver keeps coming on while I'm working

While I'm working on my computer or surfing the web, the acer screen saver just keeps coming on. It's not my screen saver it's a black background with the word "acer" in blue in the middle. I could be right in the middle of typing, and it just keeps popping up. Help! Mel

It appears that you are losing the video connection between your computer and the the monitor. Remove the conector from the video card and reconnect it again, make sure the connector is firmly secure. If the problem still persists you could have a faulty video card and it needs to be replaced.

If the video card is built in on the motherboard, you still need to purchase a new video card (buy a AGP graphics card), insert into the AGP slot of your computer, you may need to disable the onboard graphics card - go into the BIOS to do this, and you need to install the new graphics card driver.

I want to keep my screen saver on at all times


WHY? You should turn off your computer when not in use and unplug. If the battery is in it COULD malfuction and cause a fire, not to mention the shortening of the devices life span.

I tried to chang the screen saver but it keeps going back to the bubble screen saver


I think you are using the Windows7 Starter edition. This version does not allows you to customize settings.

Please clarify if you have any doubt.

Acer Aspire C-AM5910 with Windows 7; the Screen Saver comes and goes. Sometimes it works, mostly not. Any advice appreciated. Thanks, Marina


Turn it off and turn it back on (the screen saver that is. Any action on the keys or with the mouse will restart the timer. When I walk across my floor in my house, the mouse senses the motion and resets ... just as an example of my esperience with the sensitivity of the computer.

There must be some way I can use this technology to make $!

Thanks for your interest in this web site.

I sometimes get a blank screen while i'm using the computer or when i'm watching a dvd? why is the problem?


you may have screen saver active with no background selected, so when it goes to screen saver it only show blank scree. next time screen goes blank touch a key, if screen comes back, it is your screen saver, go to control panel find personalize and go to screen saver, make changes.

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!!

post back if you have any problems

thats because Acer put their own screen saver on when building them, it's not part of windows.

I'm sure a google search will come up with an Acer screen saver

Error message


N~ 1.SCR looks like a truncaked screen saver name (when a name is longer then 8 characters, it comes up with the ~) the .scr is a screen saver extension.

Just as something to try, disable any and all screen savers you have running and see it the error stops.

Please inform after trying this.
