Have you adjusted the screen saver settings in the display properties or the advanced power settings? How long have you had it? And has the screen saver worked before?

Screen saver dosent work win 7/ 64


You could going to microsoftfixit homepage and check if there is a tool that might fix that or associated screen saver problems.

First i'd open a command prompt as administrator and the type or paste this " sfc/scannow " then hit enter. after scanning your computer it will replace all missing operating system files from your recovery partition that can be seen in the my computer folder.

Maybe try Wise 360 or free windows registry repair (both free) and see if there is a temp setting or registry problem

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.

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."
