    Please check my youtube video to understand my problem

    Great presentation of your problem.
    One thing I would check is the screen saver. You say as long as you use the computer it looks normal. Look at your screen saver settings to see if the lined appearing coincide with the screen saver time.
    With computer parts, failure on a periodic basis (based on time) usually indicated a heat problem. This does not appear to be the problem in your case, as you say you can use the computer for an extended period without a problem. This is why I was suggesting a screen saver problem. You might even try a different screen saver just to test this. Possibly the part of windows that controls the screen saver (and don't ask me where that is, 'cause I haven't a clue) is corrupt.

    Good luck.

    All my monitor screen shows is it is in power saver do I get it out of this? Is it not working or do I just have to adjust something?

    This means that they don't receive any signal from the pc - hardware failure. Try using another video card and check the status of the PSU and the motherboard.

    How to change screen saver on hp mini

    Hi Iosherrera,

    I see that you are tying to change your screen saver on you HP mini 210-2160NR.

    * Your HP mini 210-2160NR has Windows7 Starter Edition installed,
    * click on start you will see a search bar type in screensaver,
    * then choose Change screen saver,
    * the Screen Saver Settings windows will appear on your screen, select the screen saver you desire then click on Apply then OK, this is where you can change your screen saver settings instead of going to personalize.

    Windows7 starter edition does not have functions like the other window7 version but the above instructions are a work around to personalize your Windows7 starter.

    I hope that this will answer your query regarding how to change your Screen Saver on your HP mini 210-2160NR, have a nice day.

    Screen saver of Samsung M620

    The device will only allow you to set certain defaults as far as your background theme and screen-saver. Go to "settings", then "display" and you will should see "screen-saver/and or "background". Once you access this application, it will give you a default list of changing your screen-saver/background for your preference.

    I want to watch a movie on my pc but it goes into sleep mode 20 minutes into the movie. How can i change the settings. It displays (auto input interjection) how can i change it?

    Turn off your screensaver from your desktop settings, and modify your power control settings from within control panel. Alternately, you can make a conscious effort to move the mouse every 19-1/2 minutes. I think I would change the settings.

    If you find my suggestions to be helpful, please share with us some details so that others may benefit from knowing the whole story. Thank you!

    Screen saver

    Most likely the demo script in the \script directory of your TT is named "salesdemo.script". A script by this name is run automatically after a certain time. Just rename it to "demo.script". Problem solved.
