    so is the screen saver causing a problem? can you select any other screen savers or it just hidden or you can select it but it doesnt work after the time you chose.

    yeah just use another one, basicaly the essential files for the screen saver is missing they're saved in the windows folder "system 32" I wouldnt go to modify that. besides a screen saver has no purpose ..it actualy slows background processes

    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!

    My gateway monitor shows a picture for about 1 second then turns to blacked out screen with power light still on. I can shut the power off on the monitor then turn it back on only to have it do the same...


    Your power settings may need to be changed, it appears to be going into sleep mode or power saving mode.

    If you are using Vista, Click Start> Control Panel > Power Options > "choose when to turn off display" (in the left hand pane) and check that it says at least 10 minutes. Click apply and then ok.

    Alternatively, right click on your desktop, select "personalise" and click on screen saver - then select "change power settings" to bring you to the same thing.

    If you have xp, right click on your desktop and select "properties" then "screensaver| > "Power" and change it to turn off the monitor after 10 minutes. Click apply then ok.

    If your monitor is going to sleep, either press a key or wiggle the mouse to wake it up.

    Hope that helps.
