Question about PC Desktops

1 Answer

Ok I have a G3 ibook recently my screen has lost some of its color quality. When I power up all is fine until the initial screen saver kicks in then it goes to what can only be described as old color settings were the color is all distorted and what use to perfect picture quality. So I struggle to see images and navigate. Please help gavin_dffy@yaqhoo.ie Rgd's Gavin

Step 1.After you come to desktop .right click and then select properties.> then for the color settings it should be 32 bit..you will find that option in the last tab..

Step 2. open 'Run' type dxdiag > after whic a window will open now check all the tabs and set the hardware accelaration to full.

Screen saver comes on too soon cutting off movies


go to start menu, find the search bar and type in screen saver. If that does not work then go to control panel, Personalization or display and find screen saver. There you can adjust the time when it will kick on.

It appears that my screen saver has not been enabled. If I am away from my desk for an extended period the screen saver is not activated.


To enable the screen saver in Windows XP, right-click on the desktop and choose Properties. Click on the screen saver tab and choose a screen saver. Set the wait time, click Apply and Ok and you're done. for Windows Vista and 7, use the following directions from :http://windows.microsoft.com/en-US/windows-vista/Change-screen-saver
  1. Open Screen Saver Settings by clicking the Start button 4f6cbd09-148c-4dd8-b1f2-48f232a2fd33.png, clicking Control Panel, clicking Appearance and Personalization, clicking Personalization, and then clicking Screen Saver.

  2. Under Screen saver, in the drop-down list, click the screen saver you want to use.

  3. Click Preview to see what your chosen screen saver will look like.

  4. Click OK.

Sounds like you have power saver turned on. Go into "display properties" under "control panel". Go to "screen saver" Check your "Power" settings. Un-check "Hibernate" or look and see power settings are and adjust accordingly. If they are all turned off, check your BIOS settings on your PC. It mights have a power saving feature in there.

Dell XPS420 Freezes after being in sleep mode


Is there a reason why you cant turn off sleep mode and just let the screen saver kick in? You can do this by right clicking on your desktop and goto properties. Then ScreenSaver, then click on power.
Change these values to never and then go back and set your screen saver...

Hope this Helps...

Standby Mode


Go to control panel then power options>power schemes and see if system standby is enabled, it may have changed if done some major updates. also turn off screen saver if on as this may bring it out of standby
