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.

Cant leave laptop cause screen wont come back on


Hi,

It would seem that for some reason, the display would not activate again after going to standby. This would involve checking the inverter circuitry that powers the CCF lamps (backlight).

A possible temporary workaround is to disable/deactivate the "Turn off monitor" feature in your laptop's Power Scheme.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Monitor won't stay on


The problem maybe with the settings in your computer. Check if the screen savers are off and also make sure that the computer doesn't turn the display unit off after some time of inactivity.

How can I disable my monitor's sleep mode? I don't want the screen to go black, I want to be able to see the screen saver as it cycles. Thank you.


You can do this in the Power Savings options with Windows. For Windows 7, rght click on the display (anywhere with no icons or running programs) and choose Personalize. Click on Screen Saver in the lower right hand corner. Adjust the Wait time for the screen saver if desired and click Apply. Then click on Change Power Settings. This brings up the Control Panel > Hardware and Sound > Power Settings. Then click on Edit Power Settings for the active power plan. (For desktops it is usually the balanced power). Then change the setting for Turn off monitor to Never when plugged in. Also change the Sleep time for the computer to Never. You can do the same for when on battery but it will shorten the length of time that the computer will be able to run on the battery for laptops. Then Save Changes and close the windows.

For older versions of Windows, these advanced power settings are also available from the Screen Saver settings page but details may differ.

I hope this helps.

    If I leave my computer unattended for maybe 15 min. this monitor turns itself off. Is there a way to fix that? Thanks, brumeister



    Screen savers can help protect your monitor from wear by showing a constantly changing display when your computer is not being used. Screen savers can be simple, like the Blank screen saver that turns off your monitor to save energy. To change your screen saver 1. Right-click your desktop, and then click Properties.
    2. In the Display Properties dialog box, click the Screen Saver tab.
    3. Click the Screen saver drop-down box, and then click a screen saver.
    4. Click the Preview button to see how the screen saver will appear on your monitor.
    5. Move your mouse or press a key to return to the Display Properties dialog box. To try a different screen saver, return to step 3. 6. Click the Settings button to change the standard behavior of the screen saver you selected. (Each screen saver has its own settings dialog box.) Then, click OK.
    7. In the Wait box, type the number of minutes the computer should wait to start the screen saver after you last touched the keyboard or mouse.
    8. If you are the only person who uses your computer and you are not concerned about security, clear the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. Otherwise, leave this check box selected. Note: If your computer is joined to an Active Directory, the Fast Users Switching feature will be disabled. This is a common change made to computers used for business, and it happens automatically when a computer joins an Active Directory domain. However, disabling the Fast User Switching feature is not the default setting. Almost all computers in home environments will have Fast User Switching enabled. When Fast User Switching is enabled, you'll see the On resume, display Welcome screen check box. If you're part of a domain, you'll see the On resume, password protect check box.
    9. Click OK.

    Black screen


    Sounds like your screen is being switched to "Power Save" mode due to inactivity. This should switch back when the mouse is moved. This can take several seconds on a laptop. You can remove this "Power Save" by right clicking anywhere on blank desktop, select "Properties", "Screen Saver" and "Power Settings" then select "Always On" for the monitor.
