Question about Dell Inspiron 1545 Notebook

1 Answer

When I log on to my laptop it brings my screensaver up but I can't click on anything. The cursor turns to a circle and it has done that now for 20 mins. I can use it in safe network mode to do this though. Any ideas?

Sounds like you have something in "autorun" perhaps put there by a virus of some sort.
Download Autoruns for Windows to view and even get rid of unneeded startup programs.
If you are not too sure what to or not to get rid of.. Just un-check one thing at a time (rebooting each time)

Screensaver stuck


Sounds like you have a runaway process that is consuming all resource. Sorry but you'll just have to hold down the power button until the machine shuts down. Then restart and you should be ok.

Bring your mouse cursor down to the bottom right of the monitor screen. Click on the blue circle with the white arrow in it to reveal your system tray icons. Right-click on the Volume icon. Looks like a speaker. Click on Adjust Volume Properties.

Turns completely off after 20 min


Open Control Panel and look for Power or Power Options (Vista) OR right-click desktop>properties and click on screensaver (XP) and click Power button. Check to see if the computer is configured to shutdown after 20 minutes on battery or plugged in (this is the default setting for battery) and adjust as necessary.

No start up page just has screensaver


from the black widows screen, hit ctrl-alt-delete. This will bring up a menu. Choose task manager, the file...run. In the run box type restore. From the box that comes up choose rsttui.exe. This is the windows restore utility. Follow the steps to restore your system, choose a date from before the issue started happening.

Hi, my screensaver acer aspire one doesn't work. can you help ?


To set up your screensaver, right click on your desktop and choose Properties. Choose the Screen Saver tab. In the drop down menu for Screen saver, make sure something is selected instead of (None). Next click the Preview and it will give you a glimpse of what the screensaver you chose will look like. Move the mouse to get out of it and select apply if you like that one or choose a different one.
