Screensaver set


Hi, go to start- Control panel- personalization. Click here and check if the
screen saver is turned off. It is located on the lower right corner. Click on it
to turn the screen saver back on. This is for windows 7.

If you are running XP go to Start- Control panel- Display. Click on the
display icon and there is a tab that says screen saver. Click here and chose
your screen saver.

How do i stop acer eeepc timing out


Click Start/Control Panel/Display and look at your screen saver options. You may have the minutes too low and you might have it set to always require a password once the screen saver kicks in.

Click Start/Control Panel/Power Options Look at your power options and settings. You may have them set too low and the system is either hibernating, sleeping, etc.

At first I thought your system was overheating and turning off but that is not the case if you are able to put in a password and log right back in and resume.

Check the power settings. Start/Control Panel/Power Options. There is a setting separate from the screen saver to turn off the screen in the Power Options control panel. DVD playback overrides the power options settings.

Screen saver no longer works


Well, you have two options to look at:

1st one:
Since your laptop is Dell, I presume that you use Dell Media Software.
Other people had the same problem too. Try disabling this program to check if your screensaver is working.
Other programs that might conflict with the screensaver might be:
1. Ehtray.exe.
2. DVDLauncher.exe
3. Power DVD
4. PCM service.

Otherwise there is a known bug:

Try updating (flashing) the BIOS with an updated version. This seems to be a problem Dell was aware of an made available a "fix."

The problem sounds like it either has to be with the software, the battery, the modem, the video card or the screen - most likely culprit is the battery (or the charger). The modem, video card and the screen when active are taking much more current than when inactive - (if you are still downloading things while the screensaver is on without a problem then the modem is not the issue) This extra current drawn is pehaps not able to be coped with by the battery, even though it is able to run the basic operations. If a new battery/charger doesn't solve the problem then the screen has to have a fault causing it to draw excessive current - first thought would be to get the connections that lead through the hinge to the monitor checked -they get damaged quite easily and there could be a short - same applies to the video card although this is more likely to completely fail than to work partially. Hope this helps :)
