Power Service Conflict With Screensaver


My screensaver and other standby mode options have had problems starting. (For example, if i set my computer to a screensaver after 1 min, a closed screen after 3 min, and sleep after 5 min, none of them work)i went through and did a clean boot, to find that the screensaver and other options still did not start. It was only after i selected "diagnostic startup, " did the screensaver finally appear. After enabling services one by one, i discovered that it was the "power" microsoft service interfering with the screensaver starting up. Is there a way to fix the power service so that i may enable it without having it interfere with my screensaver?

Battery / Power Supply Service

My laptop has crashed and battery checker still indicate 0%, but it's full charged. Pc normally work at battery over hour. Now, when i insert battery, dpcs and interrupt hw use 100% of cpu! Everything is slowly and keyboard doesn't work. But, when i take off battery and work only with ac supply, everything is good!

In safe mode it's working perfect with battery. I found, that in safe mode don't working some services. It seems like desktop (always on ac) and work both (battery, ac). I want to know, which service checking it and stop it. I don't need battery checking and tray icon. I only need work as safe mode.

Screensaver Inactive Across Dual Monitors

In using dual monitors - one dvi and one vga - i cannot get the screen saver to show across both monitors using windows 7 (although this was possible in xp).

In xp, you could use dual/two monitors - one dvi and one vga - and they will both screen save; however, windows 7 will not (similar to vista). I recently installed an evaluation copy from a dvd on a dell 745 with a dvi card at work, and on a hp with vista at home, and they're both doing the same thing: the dvi will screen save but the vga will not. You can have the same machine running xp with dual monitors - one vga and one dvi - and when the screen saver clicks in xp, it the screen saver is active across both monitors but vista nor windows 7 will screen save across both monitors.

Display Titles In Desktop / Screensaver

I've just gotten a new windows 7 computer and have chosen the slide show desktop background as my options. I've downloaded a number of the "my themes" free download packs from microsoft's site. The images are lovely, but i don't see any option to display the location/title of each file as they are cycling through. I'd like to know where the picture is from when i see it.

I also hope to create some of my own. Is there an option i'm missing that will show the name/location of the picture so i can see who/what it is as it appears on the screen?I'd also like to be able to show the file names of the photos on the screen saver so i can more quickly identify picture/person/function as it shows on the screen. Thanks for any advice/direction on this.

User Profile Service Service Failed The Logon - Login Problem

When i return to my computer after being away it says 'locked' under my username. And i think once i logout it keeps me from logging back on. We just last week purchased a dell xps 8000 with windows 7 installed. Some nice features but also it's share of bugs, such as random freezes. And this one; the second day i noticed the word 'locked' next to my username. I am an administrator, if that matters. Some time later i logged out and at my next login i got the error message "user profile service service failed the logon". The end result was that a dell tech. Did a system restore, which got me back up and running. I didn't log off last night and when i first looked at my screen this morning it says 'locked' again by my username. I am working with no problems now but i'm scared to logoff. Why is this happening and what can i do to fix it?

Ati Drivers Conflict

I upgraded from xp x32 to windows 7 x64. I performed a clean install of xp and immediately installed win7. After the first reboot in the setup the image on my monitor became garbled just after windows loaded. First, i restarted into safe mode but got a message that the installation was not complete and could only be completed in normal mode. I found that after windows loaded i could type my user name and press enter repeatedly to complete the installation although i still couldn't see what was happening.

After the installation completed i went into safe mode which gave me a clear picture. If i disabled the display adapter in safe mode i could boot into normal mode with a clear picture, but windows 7 would then install drivers which caused the image to become corrupted upon reboot. During one boot into normal mode the device manager gave me a code 19 for my video card:"windows cannot start this hardware device because its configuration information (in the registry) is incomplete or damaged.

I've tried 2 clean installs, 3 driver versions, and a different monitor. The other monitor just gives a black screen where my main monitor gives a garbled image. I've used driver sweeper and the control panel to uninstall the video drivers, and i've installed new drivers from downloaded .exe's and by letting windows find them. This computer was working perfectly fine one day ago with windows 7 rc x64.

Keyboard & Mousepad Conflict

I have recently installed windows 7 pro (64-bit) over my last os - windows 7 ultimate candidate (32-bit). Before hand, i had no problems with my keyboard and mouse-pad. Now, i can't move my mouse while i press a key on the keyboard (letters, space bar, numbers, etc). The mouse pointer just stays in place while a key is pressed, and even after i let go it takes a second for the mouse to move again. This is especially annoying when i'm trying to use keyboard shortcuts on photoshop.
I am not using any new programs.

Conflict Between Usb Devices

I have windows 7 ultimate x64.couple days ago i bought apc smart ups 500va that has a usb connection to the pc to enable a soft shut down. I have installed the latest win 7 drivers from apc. I also have microsoft wireless multimedia keyboard 1. 1 and microsoft wireless optical mouse 2000. Once i installed the ups (it's using one of the usb ports), every time i reboot, the keyboard and mouse freeze and i can't fix that until i plug the ups out of the usb and reboot. Once i am in windows, i can plug the ups back in and it works perfectly. Re-installing drivers, removing devices and other usual tricks have not hepled. How can i get around this problem without replacing the hardware?

Installer Language Conflict

Just moved up to 64 bits windows 7. I have the dutch language version. I am trying to install msxml2 sp2 (msxml. Msi). One can choose from a number of languages, but not dutch, so i choose english (which is what i always did previously, and without problems). As soon as i click on install, my computer freezes up, and the only option is to turn off the power switch.

I have noticed that with other programmes (for example abbyy fine reader 9. 0) where one can choose the language (including dutch), the same thing happens if i choose a language other that dutch (fair enough), but surely we are allowed to use the msxml package? Any suggestions?Ideas:programs you are having problems with error messages recent changes you made to your computer what you have already tried to fix the problem.

Conflict Using Hauppauge And Nvidia

I recently installed hauppauge hvr in my new computer which uses a nvidia graphics card. Everything seems to work except the video input (using s-video) from a digital video camera (mounted on a microscope). The picture trough my win tv 7 is split, with the bottom half at the top of the screen and the top half at the bottom, separated by 3 colour bars across the screen. The picture is otherwise in black and white but should be in coulour. A second feed going directly to a tv is fine. Everything works as it should using usb live and windows xp. I am using windows 7 ultimate. We really need this to work as our business depends on it.

Wireless Problem Ip Conflict

I have a lap top ( gateway - windows7 ) and i connect to the internet via wireless. The problem is that the connection is really unstable, it drops like every single minute!

A message popped up saying that this computer has an ip conflict, that it has the same ip as another computer. Maybe that's the problem?

This connection is really driving me crazy, can someone help me out? The funny thing is that if i connect to others wireless connections, like in school for example, it works without any problem, without a single drop!

After downloading the latest patch for battlefield 2142 deluxe i received a message that stated "conflict with emulation software detected", ea support states this is because the game is being ran on a virtual drive and suggested i deactivate the emulation software.

Ip Address Conflict On Home Network

I am a new at this and have never asked a question before but i am utterly lost. I am having a problem getting my 3 computers to connect to my wireless network. I am running windows 7. I can connect the laptop but when i try to connect the netbook or the desktop. I get an error of "ip address conflict". Below is a list of what i have tired.

Disconnected the wireless router and the modem.
Reset the wireless router to try to force a new ip address.
I have read and read.

I just read about the dhcp client and that is enabled but if i do a cmd ipconfig /all it says that dhcp client is not enabled but the auto configuration is enabled. The physical address is showing a string of zeros. Done an ipconfig to release and renew on both the laptop and the netbook.

When i do just an ipconfig:

Connection-specific dns suffix domain_not_set. Invalid
Ipv6 address: 2002:45b6:6a50:45b6:6a50
Default gateway: 2002:c058:6301:c058:6301

I have read all over this forum and i keep trying everything and nothing is working. I am not sure if i gave enough information. Any advice?

Ati Driver Conflict - Display Crashes

I have an on going issue with my new system. At first i thought it was video/hardware related, but now i am leaning towards it being a conflict with windows. However, i have no way of tracking it down.

The issue: my screen will randomly die when running aero intensive applications, games, etc. Everything will run fine for a given amount of time (any where from seconds to an hour), but then the screen will clicker and the display will go out. On the screen i see a series of vertical white bars with a colors background. It does not appear to lock the computer up, as i still hear sound going in the background for a time; the computer will eventually reboot if i leave it alone long enough.

This is all running on a fresh install of windows 7 64x, upgraded from vista business 64. The temperatures on the card all read as normal, and there are no errors showing up in the event viewer after i reboot; outside of the 'unexpected shutdown' critical error.

When this first started happening i contacted xfx support for the video card. They had me uninstall the ati drivers, run driver sweeper, and reinstall the drivers. This seemed to fix the issue until tuesday, when windows update installed kb977074 - an update totally unrelated to video - and then the errors started happening again.

After a fit with system restore, i decided to format the drive and start over. Upon getting back in to windows 7 64x, i started installing programs one by one, checking after each install to see if i could create the error again. Everything was fine until i reached a program that installed the visual basic c+ 2005 redistributable package (x86). Once the error started to occur after this, i uninstalled the programs and did a system restore prior to the package installing.

The computer already had the c+ 2008 (x64) package installed, and worked fine once the 32-bit 2005 package was removed. However, most programs i want to use, and most games for that matter, require the 2005 package to be installed. So i re-installed it, and removed the 2008 package; thinking it was a conflict between the two (/straws), but that did nothing. The errors returned, and i an now back at square one, hiding on the last stable restore point of the system.

I am not sure if i am still dealing with a driver conflict, hardware issues or if the c+ packages are some how messing up my system. I am not putting much faith in the latter, because i do not believe the first scan with driver sweeper would of been so successful, only to be taken down later by a totally unrelated windows update file.

Synaptics Touchpad Conflict With Microsoft Mouse

I am having a problem with win 7 and an apparent conflict with the synaptics touchpad. I have a microsoft mouse working so i can use the laptop, but the touchpad won't work. I have tried just about everything from uninstalling both the touchpad and the mouse to a clean install of windows. I have narrowed it down (after several clean installs) to what seems to be a conflict with outlook connector. After the clean install the touchpad has resumed working and then i had to reload all of my programming which is a real pain.

The touch pad seemed to stop working after i downloaded and installed the outlook connector to allow mapi connection to my msn.com emails. I can not keep up the clean install process (done at least 3 times). I have downloaded the synaptics driver direct from the company without a fix. Gateway says keep doing a clean install which is ludicrous. The touchpad driver says it is working properly with no conflicts even though it does not work. I believe that this is a windows 7 problem. Any further ideas would be appreciated. By the way once the synaptics touchpad stops working nothing short of a clean install will fix the problem, so i have a choice no outlook or no touchpad.

Conflict Settings In Mobile Device Center

New mobile device center in windows 7 conflict resolution settings are too simplified and hence confusing. You can choose one of two settings:

Replace items on desktop; or
Replace items on device.

Any idea which is which? My primary synching is with exchange server at work. Periodically, i want to synchronize with my pc at home (which has windows 7). My worry is that i'll choose the wrong setting and lose the contacts on my device, which is constantly synchronizing with exchange server. I don't want my home pc to change anything on my device (i.e. , I only want to synch in one direction).

Sound Card And Wireless Network Card Conflict

I installed windows 7 custom (from xp) and my dlink dwa552 card connected immediately. The next day, i downloaded the drivers for my creative sound card, sb - xfi and after re-booting, the wireless would not connect. I disabled the sound card and still could not connect. Disabled the wireless and enabled, it connected correctly. Then i can enable the sound card without losing the connection, however, if i lost the connection, it would not re-connect. Any ideas how to trouble shoot this?

Power On Password

I pushed the power on, just as i normally do. But found out displaying this: "power-on password". The last time i use it was like the usual thing i do. I do now know the password and how i ended up with this. I tried some of these: i tried to remove the battery for a meantime and hoping it will turn on normally but still shows the same result. Everytime i click enter, it shows the same until 3rd time. Everytime i click f11 or any function keys, it still shows the same. I just purchased windows 7 9 months ago but haven't experienced any negative things until now.

Laptop Will Not Power Up

Have been given a toshiba protege r400 mod no:ppr40a-01000l to look at for a friend who is very ill and the machine just will not switch on. Have tested the adaptor and battery voltage and there is plenty. Now i don't have much experience with laptops as such and so cannot rule the psu as the culprit. When plugged in the blue power light is on and the small yellow battery indicator flickers at random speeds - but quite fast. Now i have the maintenance manual for it and i can probably get the lcd mask off to look at the power witch itself. But before i do i would like some opinions on the most likely cause and would prefer to avoid this if at all possible.

Why Doesnt The Usb Power Off ?

Why doesn't the usb power off in windows 7 & vista. My led is still on after i click on the remove usb icon. Vista and win 7 rc1 still say i can remove the usb but the usb is still powered. This, in my opinion, can still affect the usb. Is it possible to have the usb power down like in xp. It is not a big issue but important from the stand point of possibly losing data on the usb or other device.

Usb Power Surge

I got an error message stating usb power surge/failure. Since then, all 3 usbs on my laptop are no longer working. If i plug an optic mouse into it the optic light doesn't even come on making me think its a power issue. In device manager though, all usbs are showing as operational (although when you select one and go to the power tab, it shows 0 under power available. I'm worried i have fried my motherboard but everything else is working fine. Any suggestions ?

Mimic Xp Power User

We are trying to get legacy software to work on vista and windows 7. Our software could be run by administrators or power users in xp. According to microsoft, "to use power users group on windows vista, a new security template must be applied to change the default permissions on system folders and the registry to grant power users group permissions equivalent to windows xp". However, it does not tell me how to configure one or give an example.

Can anyone tell me what i need to do to create a security template that will be the equivalent of a power user in xp?

Power Settings Reset

Although i have setup my laptop not to enter sleep mode when i close the lid and this has worked several times, after installing updates this setting does not work anymore. The settings themselves did not change, just the behavior. I tried to change them back to default and then change them back to how i want (i.e. Not to enter sleep mode when the lid is closed), but the laptop still goes into sleep mode when the lid is closed.

Any ideas where i can begin troubleshooting?
