I don't seem to have a screensaver tab at all. I looked in "Display" and it just isn't there. I looked under appearance, themes and everywhere else.

I am not sure why this would happen, but you can limit access to certain items using XP's built-in policy tool.

Check this setting:

Click Start / Run
Type in: gpedit.msc Press [enter]

Browse to User Configuration / Control Panel / Display / Hide Screen Saver Tab

This allows you to hide the screen saver tab. Perhaps your computer administrator did this for a reason, or perhaps it is just a glitch.

My screensaver will not come up on my computer


Depending on the operating system you have to go to the display setting to activate your screen saver. You can right click anywhere in the background and press on properties, the select screen saver on the tabs from top for windows XP or earlier. It's similar for win vista, 7 and 8 but its placed differently on the left side whe you select display properties.

Have lg monitor flatron e2260 . Have had for about 3 weeks. Starting today, the monitor goes black and states "d-sub power saving mode". The tower stays on. Thx


1. Check the connections and make sure they are still tight. If the monitor isn't getting data signal it can go into power saving mode. Since it was working I would check this first.

2. Look in control panel under POWER OPTIONS and make sure it's not set to turn off after so long.

3. Also check the settings for your screensaver under display settings. That too could put it into poewr saver mode.

It could be a setting on the monitor itself that somehow got changed. Check out the settings to see if anything has changed.

How do I set the time that my screensaver runs and then my wallpaper somes back on?


It depends on your version of windows but in general goto Control Panel, Appearance and Personalisation (also called display in XP) and look for the screensaver tab or link. This will display the settings you require.
Sometimes you can right click on your desktop and goto properties or personalisation to get to the same menu.

Hope this helps,

I own a vista laptop and I cannot download skins, themes and some screensavers. Please advise.


How To Change The Theme In Windows Vista The one good thing about Windows Vista Themes is that customization is entirely possible. And when you can customize you can naturally personalize. That’s right. Vista allows you to select your own themes in a few easy steps. This allows you to tinker with your computer to make it more attractive and less monotonous – when you want it and how you want it.
A Windows Vista theme is simply a group of customized tweeks that span the entire gamut of menu appearance, icons, colors, fonts, screen savers, background, and yes – even paints!
Let’s start with your desktop because it’s the most logical place to start. To select a desktop theme, perform the following steps:
• go to your desktop. In any blank area, right click.
• scroll down to “personalize” and click.
• a dialogue box will come up that says: “Personalize appearance and sounds.” Right below it are seven headers. Choose “theme” which is the sixth item, or second to the last item.
• a dialog box appears with the title “theme settings.”
• under “theme”, you have a small box with a drop down menu. If you click on the arrow, Windows Vista gives you four choices: current theme, Windows Vista, Windows Classic and browse (the browse option allows you to get a theme that you saved in a specific folder. When you choose browse, Vista automatically takes you to your downloads folder where you saved the theme).
• when you click on any of the four choices, you get a preview of the theme. Choose one by clicking “apply” or “OK”. If you don’t like any of what you see and decide to stick to what you have, simply click “cancel” or close the dialog box.
Windows Vista Themes: Few Things Worth Noting
• Windows Vista does not come with a large pre-built bundle of themes. This shouldn’t stop you from creating your own. You can still change the background (or wallpaper), colors, screen saver and how your menu will look. Save what you’ve created by clicking the Save As button. This button is in the dialog box we mentioned earlier called “Theme Settings.”
• Don’t confuse Windows Vista themes with the pre-built themes in Word 2007, Power Point 2007 and Excel 2007. Each of these programs has its own themes bundle.
• If you happen to like a theme you saw on the Web, make sure that your virus program is up-to-date before you download a theme. Some viruses are disguised as themes so be careful.
Remember that even if Word, Excel, and PowerPoint already have predefined document themes, you can create your own by customizing an existing document theme and then saving it as a custom document theme.
If you’re really into themes and like to create your own for fun, then you must be a “skinning fan” (themes are sometimes called skins). According to Andy Rathbone, noted Windows expert, you can use a third party program like WindowBlinds and can download any theme they have at a very modest fee. What’s even better is some of these themes are free. By typing “Windows Vista Themes” in any search engine, you’ll get a whole array of company names that specialize in Vista themes. But like we said, be careful when downloading.

My laptop screen will go black. If I tap on the mouse or mousepad, it will come back on. Sometimes it stays on and sometimes on and off for awhile


I would check the Power features under "Display Properties", "Screensaver" tab, then monitor "Power" located at the bottom of the "Screensaver" tab. Check the settings located there and see if that helps.

Display Property For Windows XP


I just cleaned up a similar situation this weekend. Try this. Go into the control panel and create a new user id. Log off of your current user id and use the new one you created. See if the tabs are still there. If they are the virus trashed your desktop and you should create a new one.

Before you do that try scanning for viruses with the new desktop you just created. It might be that the virus exists on your old desktop and it won't go away because it is running. Checking for viruses using the new desktop can get rid of the problem.

Well if anyone is interested and for general knowledge these are the 3entries that were killing the Desktop and Screen Saver tabs in XP. Hupigon13 seems to be at the root of it all.
