When i turn my computer on the screen is black for awile then it comes on where i can see my screen saver why does it do this


Turn the computer off.
Turn the computer on,
and keep pressing the 'F8' key until you see a "start-up" menu.
Choose "Start in Safe Mode".
Does the screen now look normal?
If so, set the "screen-resolution" to 800-by-600.
Then shutdown and restart.

Acer Aspire 5535-5050 only starts in "safe mode"


when you get to safe mode try to do a system restore to a date that the computer worked............on xp it will give you a screen to enter safemode with yes or no options ........choose no to go diorectly to system restore...............if not xp look for system restore in the system tools folder on start menu or in control panel............the screen saver error is most likely because you are in safe mode.

Hello

Thank you for using
FixYa for your problem


The reason you cant get past the restart is because by selecting safeboot on the boot.ini tab, you have now set your computer to boot straight into safe mode (even though you knew your computer couldnt boot to safe mode) :)

Were you having trouble before? Why were you trying to get into safe mode in the first place? it may help with the solution. Were you getting shutdowns or blue screens? Ram problems can cause all sorts of issues.

Do you have your windows cd? If you do then follow the instructions on the link below to replace your boot.ini. file

http://pcsupport.about.com/od/fixtheprob…

Let me know how you get on with that and we will go from there :) (just edit your original post with added detail)

I need to restore icons on desktop, tried to do so, nothing works. The screen saver has covered the entire desktop face. cannot remove it.


I am not sure that the screen saver is making problems.
Screen savers turn on after at least one minute of no activity, and turn off when you move your mouse or press a button on your keyboard.

Start your PC in 'SAFE MODE' . Are there your desktop icons?
Disable or uninstall the screen saver and and restart in 'Normal mode'.

Regards.

The brightness level


You need to use the Toshiba "Power Saver" console. Go to Control Panel -> TOSHIBA power saver. Click the Icon and use the console to adjust the brightness for the various power schemes. If you don't see the TOSHIBA power saver icon, go to Go to Control Panel ->Power Options and open that console. Select "TOSHIBA Power Saver" option in the "Power schemes" dialog box. If you don't have that option in the dialog box, you need to go to the Toshiba site and download the Power Saver installation file and reinstall it.

Well, first thing would be to turn off screen saver. Right click on the screen anywhere, go to properties, screensaver, from the pull down check none, apply and close. May need to reboot. then let's see if it's a screensaver problem. Good luck
