Slow Screen Saver In Live Photo Gallery


I have used the windows live photo gallery screen saver satisfactorily since installing windows 7 about five months ago, but for some unknown reason i now find that the photos take about 4-5 seconds to start showing photos once the 'wait' period has expired and when i move my mouse it takes another 4-5 seconds to use the computer. In both cases, during the 4-5 seconds i have a black blank screen. It works fine when using the photos screen saver, except the photos are square and not wide screen. Previously, it was virtually instantaneous - is there some setting or repair etc i need to carry out ?

Live Photo Gallery Problem

My question is regarding a problem with windows live photo gallery (wlpg) running under windows 7.
I recently purchased a new desktop computer, with windows 7, and copied all my photos from an older vista machine to the new win 7 machine – no problem. Many of my photos are old, scanned-in photos for which i invested much time to time stamp them with the original photo creation date, using wlpg. In windows vista all my photos can be viewed in wlpg in correct chronological order.

When i view the same photos with wlpg on the new win 7 machine, it appears that the original photo creation dates are not read accurately – many of the scanned-in photos, for which i manually set the creation date with wlpg, show the dates incorrectly. Now all my hard work to get photos sorted chronologically is lost, at least in wlpg.

The curious thing is that adobe lightroom, running on the same win 7 machine, is able to sort and show the same photos in the correct chronological order. Is there some way to get wlpg to read the photo creation date fields correctly so that i can continue to use wlpg to view my photos? I prefer wlpg over ligthroom – it’s easier to use.

Pictures Not Loading In Live Photo Gallery

I've been using windows photo gallery for years. When i upgraded recently to windows 7, i upgraded to windows live photo gallery and all has been fine until recently - suddenly, when i open it up, there are a ton of my pictures that don't load - they are either solid grey rectangles or the generic "island" icon rectangle. When i double click on them, my picture opens up, but i need to be able to see all my photos in the gallery - does anyone know why this is happening?

Live Photo Gallery Editor In Win 7 64-bit

I had win 7 32bit on my old computer and used the photo gallery editor as my default for image files. This seems to be missing from the 64bit version. Although the editor is still there, i can't get at it directly. I use thumbnails as icons for image files and the pg editor worked fine for this in 32bit. I cannot find a program to use as default for image files that will do this. It is obviously much easier to pick an image out of a folder when the icon is the image.

Any ideas?

Screen Saver Not Working

With respect to the screen saver. I have reinstalled the nvidia 9800 gt driver pursuant to suggestions found in this forum. I haven't made any changes to the system recently. I noticed shortly after installation of win 7 that the screen saver worked intermittently at best. I did a clean install january 1, 2010. I was able to get it to work by changing the number of minutes column. Now nothing works. I have changed out mice to no avail. It appears that quite a few people have had this problem. It makes me wonder why ms hasn't included a patch in the updates. Does anyone have any further suggestions or workarounds.

Random Peices Of Pictures In Live Gallery

I just transferred back to pc from mac and am using my old ipod video as an external disk to transfer music and photos. All of my photos are now in my new computer, but in the windows live photo gallery, it also displays small random pieces of my photos-for example-part of someone's face or the scene. I have the whole photo also, but i don't understand why little pieces of them are here and there all of the gallery. No clue how they got there or how to get rid of them. Does anyone know how to fix this? Do i just have to go through all of them and delete manually the distorted pieces?

Screen Saver Slows Down Login

I upgraded from vista ultimate to win7 ultimate a number of months ago. Everything works fine, except that whenever i activate any screen-saver, and it runs for a few hours, getting back to the login screen takes five minutes. If the screen-saver runs for a few minutes, no problem. My solution is just to lock the computer, but i wish i could use my screen-saver photos (happens on other screen-savers also). I don't want to do a clean install; not worth it for this inconvenience. Any other suggestions?

Screen Saver Does Not Work - Display Never Shuts Off

The screen saver never works and the display never shuts off. How do i fix this? I have no idea how to make the screen saver work or get the display to automatically shut off. The preview for the screen saver doesn't even work. Everything i've read said this is typically because of a wireless mouse, but i do not have a wireless mouse or anything else attached to my laptop.

Slow Response On Live Mail

I have windows live mail installed with windows 7 64 bit. It have worked great for 6 months, but now it takes 2-3 minutes before the program will accept any characters in the address field (or any other field) after hitting "reply" or requesting a new message. I have started the program in window safe mode and it works fine. I've disabled most background programs including anti-virus and firewalls and nothing changes.

Power Saver / Graphics Bug

My asus computer has this power4gear battery performance tracker/ruinmylife software. I should mention that i always keep my laptop plugged in for the duration of my session, then unplug it after shutting down. When i turn on my computer, everything is fine. But when i start to do anything, anything, an extremely intrusive and dictatorial performance pop up invades my computer screen, telling me that it is switching power plans (nothing changes during this 'switch'), and will not go away or minimize for at least two minutes.

If i try to do anything while it is on the screen, the screen immediately goes black and stays that way until the pop up decides to call it quits. I know it has something to do with nvidia graphics, but if i click on the tray icon nothing happens. Occasionally, after childishly trying to click the pop up away roughly 50 times it starts to fade white, behaving like a non-responsive program (which it obviously is). Every so often the pop up appears multiple times in one session, even if i'm doing one thing for the duration of my time on the computer.

If i'm gaming, i am hard-pressed to minimize the program if the occasion calls for it because bringing it back up each time dims the screen more and more. Is there anything i can do or press to make this pop up go away? It's just really, really annoying!

Email A Photo

Okay, all i need to do is send a picture & make it so that the person who gets it can download it & keep it. I have a  windows 7 home premium. I try to send it from my "pictures" but it always says that i do not have the "permission". I've tried everything i can think of (i know nothing about computers; it's just for the home). I am getting very upset over this. I don't want to send it along on "snapfish" because, from what i've seen, the person can't download & keep the picture on their computer. All i need to know is how to get "permission".

Photo Printing Programs

I have had really just a few problems with window 7, one of which i'm coming to find out is the lack of the ability to print 4x6 single photo prints. With windows xp and my epson rx595 i was able to print any size under the sun i wanted to. With windows 7, all the compatible programs now will not allow me to print a single 4x6. I went to the epson website and downloaded an updater for windows 7. Still i am unable to print a single 4x6.

I can print 2 4x6's or even better yet 3 4x6's on one sheet of photo paper. This isn't what i want to do, some times yes but i want to use single 4x6 paper so it's easier to print and give out the photos to family. The other way, printing 3 on one sheet, i have to cut it and that takes away time that i could be spending with my granddaughter!

Did not see ? That covers my problem. Had trouble down loading and getting arcsoft ware to run on w7. Gave up trying despite everyones suggestions. So i removed the sd. Chip and plugged it into my hp 7 laptop. After transferring the pics. Window came up and requested update on windows viewer pro 2.

Epson Photo Rx620 Printer

I recently upgraded from vista premium 64 bit to windows 7 64 bit. My epson photo rx 620 printer worked fine on vista, but doesn't work on windows 7. When i run the printer troubleshooter it tries to download the drivers for this printer, but fails. I contacted epson and they say the printer is compatible with windows 7 and i should get the drivers from microsoft. The microsoft driver download site doesn't list the rx 620 in either the "compatible list" or the "incompatible list".

Every time i try to send microsoft an email, i get the page telling me i have to pay for their help. Does anyone know how i can get the proper drivers for my printer?

How To Format Digital Photo View?

I need to format disk f, and i can't figure out how. I put in my digital photo viewer into my windows 7 computer (toshiba, satellite: l305d-s5974), it says i need to format the disk in drive f, and before that it said i need to format the disk in drive e. It changed when i put in my flash drive (staples flash drive: 4 gigabites). When i do try to format it, it says that windows was unable to complete the format (it said that too when it said i need to format the disk in drive e). I have searched all over the internet and i cannot find a single solution, even on microsoft's website. Please let me know when you have a solution as soon as possible.

Scroll Bar On Photo Viewer

How do you enable/show the scroll bar on the windows photo viewer? I am using two thinkpad t400, one running vista and the other is 7. On the vista machine, when i open up a large photo, the scroll bar will appear so i can go to the top or bottom quickly. On 7, that scroll bar disappeared. Is there a patch i can apply to get it back? It seems it is not in the option or settings. This is really painful because i have to deal with large pictures. And i've been going back to the vista even if i hate it so much.

Different Colors Appear In Pictures Using Photo Viewer / Ie

Seems like pictures are being color managed properly in windows photo viewer (as well as photoshop and firefox) but not in internet explorer, acdsee (ver. 10), or google chrome. I'm running windows 7 professional 64 bit. Same applications running on my laptop (windows 7 ultimate 32 bit) are exhibiting no such problems. I upgraded to the latest ati video drivers (i have an hd4650) and monitor driver. No luck. The default color management scheme is the same in the laptop and desktop (i left the windows default which is srgb iec61966-2. 1). Any help would be greatly appreciated
