How do you get Windows 10 free update from Windows 8 to operate the screen saver?

I updated from Windows 8 to Windows 10 when they offered the free update. I have not been able to get the screen saver function to work...so I just put my computer to sleep when I leave the area.

How to customize Screensaver in Windows 10
RECOMMENDED: Click here to fix Windows errors and optimize system performance
There were times when computer monitors used to suffer from image burn-in issues caused by showing the same image for a long period of time and people used to install a screen saver to avoid the issue. The computer screens today no longer face the burn-in issues, but people still use the screen saver on their computer systems for fun's sake. Windows 10 comes with a six built-in screensavers. Let us see how you can customize screensavers in Windows 10.
Read: Are Screensavers necessary and still needed.
Screensaver Settings in Windows 10 You can get to your screen saver settings directly by typing 'Screen Saver' in the taskbar search box in the lower left corner of your system. Click on 'Change Screen Saver' and it will take you the Screen Saver settings right away where you can adjust the settings according to your own preferences.
Alternatively, right-click on your Windows 10 desktop, and select Personalize to open Personalization settings. Next click on Lock screen in the left pane.

Scroll down the Lock Screen settings and click on Screen Saver Settings. The following window will open. Here you can adjust the settings according to your preferences.

By default, Windows 10 offers the following six screensavers - 3D Text, Blank, Bubbles, Mystify, Photos and Ribbons - nothing new here. Select the screensaver from the drop-down menu and change its defaults Settings, if any are available.
For instance, the 3D Text screensaver lets you customize the text as well as a few other options.

The Photos screensaver lets you display your favorite photos as a screen saver.

Once you are done, click on save and exit.

Create Screen Saver Settings Shortcut

If you access the screensaver settings frequently, you can create its desktop shortcut as follows: However, it is easy to change the settings but if you change your screen saver often, it would be better to create a Screen Saver Settings shortcut on your desktop.
To create the shortcut, you have to right-click on your desktop and click on New > Shortcut.
Type control desk.cpl,,@screensaver in the location space in the wizard.
Click Next and give a name to your shortcut. Click Next and you are done. Give it a suitable icon of your choice.
Use this shortcut to change or adjust your screen saver settings whenever you want, quickly.
You can also create a shortcut to launch or change Screensaver state for a specific screensaver.

Windows 8 drivers for m7250n

If you run the Windows 8 update advisor (available on the microsoft website)on your computer you may find that the hardware is too old for windows 8, as it was built to run windows XP. The only way round this would be to update the graphics and add an audio card that is windows 8 ready. I hope this helps.

System error e225

Hello 3G,

To resolve the issue Error e225,

Turn the main power switch off and then back on-ICMF 4000 series/D400 Series

or

Update the firmware :

There is a risk that the MF4150 will not operate if power interruption occurs
during the firmware update. Please make sure MF4150 is connected to
reliable AC power source.

1. Save the downloaded file "MF4150_FirmwareUpdateTool_V0xx.exe on local drive. (i.e. desktop)
Computer Requirements for update
- Microsoft Windows 2000 or XP (32bit)
- Equipped with a USB port (either 1.1 or 2.0)
- Free disk space: 100 MB or more
2. Make sure that Processing/Data indicator (Green LED) on the MF4150's operation panel is turned off.
If the light is lit or blinking, wait until all the jobs are finished (i.e., COPY, PRINT, and SCAN), and that the Processing/Data indicator is turned off.
3. Make sure that Error indicator (Red LED) on the operation panel is turned off. If Processing/Data indicator (Green LED) is lit and Error indicator (Red LED) is blinking at the same time, jobs are held in the printer memory due to an error, possible cause is out of toner or paper has run out, or toner cartridge is not installed. Check the LCD for and error message and refer to the documentation that came with the printer to resolve the error.
4. Disconnect Fax line cable from the MF4150 to prevent Fax reception interruption during firmware update.
5. Make sure the USB cable is directly connected to the MF4150 and your computer.
  • Do NOT use a USB hub to connect the cable, as it may lead to a connection error.
  • Make sure the machine is not in the Sleep mode (i.e., [Energy Saver] key on the operation panel is leit). To exit the Sleep mode, press [Energy Saver] and confirm that the Energy Saver light is off.
  • You need to log on as an administrator to perform this update.
  • Make sure that no other applications are running on your computer.
6. If [Found New Hardware Wizard] appears on your PC screen, click [Cancel] to exit the screen.
  • [Found New Hardware Wizard] screen may be displayed multiple times. Cancel anytime you encounter this screen while performing this update.
7. Double-click ?MF4150_FirmwareUpdateTool_V0xx.exe? that you downloaded and saved.
8. Double-click "MF4150_V0xx_FirmwareUST.exe" that is in the newly created folder as a result of uncompressed downloaded file.
9. Confirm that the machine is in the ready status, and then click [Transfer]
  • If the printer is not detected: Check if the printer's power is turned on and the USB cable is properly connected. Then click [Retry] to proceed.
10. The firmware is transferred to the printer.
  • Never turn of the power to the MF4150 while firmware is updating. If power interruption occurs while the firmware is being updated the control board will be damaged and will need to be replaced. The replacement of the control board and labor will not be covered under warranty.
  • If an error occurs while transferring the firmware: Check if USB cable is properly connected. Click [Retry] to proceed.
11. When [Firmware transfer is complete] appears, click [Exit].
The printer starts the update process automatically.
<ERASE FLASH ROM> appears on the printer's display while the existing firmware is being erased.
Then printer's display shows <FIRMWARE UPDATE> while updating the firmware.
When the firmware update is complete, the printer's display shows <FIRMWARE UPDATE OK> <MACHINE POWER OFF/ON>

How can i download driver free

Most hardware manufacturers offer free driver downloads from their web sites. However some hardware that is not compatible with your operating system will not have drivers available.

You can also try a Google search naming the item and add the word "driver". Many sites will charge for drivers but there are also quite a few that offer free driver downloads.

Using Windows Update in Custom mode will offer free updated drivers as recommended installs.
