Screen Saver Does Not Appear

I cannot get my screen saver to display . I have chosen my photos and followed all the instructions and clicked ok ( but the apply button is not highlighted)i have chosen to use a personalized theme as all the standard ones seem to  show that there will be no screen saver. It shows what my screen saver will be and i can view it on the preview, but the screen just goes black after the computer is idle for the set time (10 mins) i had no trouble with my old computer and windows xp.

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.

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 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 ?

Xp Mode Fails To Show On Screen

I've been using xp mode on windows 7 and it has worked ok for some time. Suddenly i am not able to use xp mode. The program starts, and the virtual icon appears in the bottom task bar, and when i mouse over the icon a tiny window appears. When i click the window, the window just disappears, that is it doesn't come up on the full screen. Previously upon starting xp mode, it would automatically open as a full screen. I suspect that the problem may have been created when i attempted to shut down the computer (in windows 7 mode) before hibernating the xp mode.

I have tried windows restore, going back to a point before the time of this incidence, but without success. I have also re-downloaded xp mode over the top ot the existing version, but also without success. Using various options in control panel, i have come across a message that says "xp mode was closed with a user logged on", upon which i have hit the continue button. No success. Ny suggestions?

Screen Will Randomly Show Up With Blurred Icons, Buttons

Since i loaded windows 7 professional, my screen will randomly show up with blurred icons, buttons, etc. Almost like they are being pixelated. Sometimes i can move the cursor over the icon, and it will then display correctly. The other day my entire desktop was blurred. Tried loading the latest video driver, but it says it is the latest.

Stick On Disc Labels

Are they really not a good thing? Do they add so much thickness to the disc that some players just can't handle the added thickness to make it work/play well in a car disc player or for that matter a home dvd/cd player? The labeled discs i speak of are completely without lumps/bubbles/and are perfectly centered/no overhang/etc. I do have and occasionally use lightscribe - but find they are hard to read. Overall. Are they not recommended because of the added thickness?

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!

My Photos Have Disappeared

Most of my photos have disappeared; what happened to them? I transferred a bunch of pictures onto this new laptop. I had them arranged by month. I could access them by going to the pictures library or to user/my name/my pictures. Well, now i can see all of the monthly folders i created, but in 90% of them, it says folders are empty if i go to the my pictures, the folders are empty, . If i go to the pictures library and arrange by month, i can see them, but if i click to make it bigger, it says windows viewer can't open this because the picture has been deleted or it's in a location that isn't available. ? What happened to my pictures?

Stretched Photos From Mobile

I have a brand new computer with windows 7 installed. Everything looks perfect except that every time i transfer pictures from my mobile they look horizontally stretched. The dimensions of the jpeg from my lgkf600 are: 2048x1536 the same problem is for every picture taken with my mobile and already stored on my hdd (the one i had as storage even before i use windows 7. Though if i upload one of these "stretched" pictures to a forum, or facebook for example, they look normal again. Do you have any ideas or solutions to my problem? It's really annoying!

(I tried to find on this forum some answer about my problem, but i haven't seen something that fits me, if there one, please do excuse me for the repetition. )

Moving Photos Around Within A Folder

I have had windows 7 for only a week now after having vista for a few agonizing months. I was really happy with xp but i had to purchase a new computer that came with vista. After having so many problems i upgraded to 7. My wife and i take alot of pictures and the click and drag feature was really great for us. I spent a couple of hours on 7 trying to arrange pictures in the order that i want and had no success. Please bring back the click and drag. If i could figure out a way to put xp on this new computer , i would do that.

Photos Will Not Rotate After Importing From Camera

Photos will not rotate when i copy them from my camera to the computer, however when i open them up in photoshop or other photo editors, the photo is rotated to the correct position already. This problem gives me a different orientation using photo editors and a different orientation using the windows default picture viewer.

Photos taken on the camera are automatically rotated based on how i was holding the camera. Then when i put them on the computer (i don't use an import program, i just copy and paste) they are shown in the wrong orientation (usually vertical pictures are horizontal). Now i rotate them to fix them until i open them up and photoshop and my pictures are actually upright to begin with.

Basically i rotate photos when it is already rotated to the correct position. The problem is that windows vista and 7 always show the wrong preview. This is frustrating because i can't find the correct rotation. If i do ps my photos will always be in one orientation and then when using windows to preview images it's in another orientation. What's the problem? I noticed this happens on my friend's computers as well.

Downloading Photos From Memory Cards

Windows xp was great for downloading pics, eventhough it would freeze at times. Vista was horrible. Windows 7 is very confusing. When i insert a cd-r to copy pics from memory cards, it promps to name the cd if you want, i don't so i just click next, than it gives me a blank/shaded screen, and a message at the bottom right saying there are pics ready to download, but when i click on it, it does not do anything. It send the photos to the c drive and there is where i can copy to the cd, horrible. Leave it like windows xp nice and simple. Tell me what i am doing wrong

Cannot Email Photos In Live Mail

I've just had a new pc with windows 7 and windows live mail, and am still getting used to it, so very sorry if i am just being plain thick! I can send and receive regular emails fine, unless i add an photo - then, they are sent but not received. I have a couple of email addresses and have been trying all day to send myself a photo from one to the other, but the only way it worked was by
Sending it from my hotmail address online (not from windows live mail).

Do you have any ideas what i'm doing wrong? I am using the 'add photos' button then selecting a photo from my pictures, clicking 'add' and 'done' and everything seems to work ok, but non of the emails have arrived back.

Sorting Photos By Dragging Within A Folder

I'm in shock ! I loaded windows 7 before going on vacation and now that i'm back, i wanted to sort my trip's 1000+ videos/pictures like i always did by dragging them around within a folder and then renaming them once in the desired order. This is step one before producing a slideshow or video and even the most amateur users know that .

It does not work in windows 7 ?

It is mind-boggling that i then read in your forum that this critical user feature was removed "by design" . Tell me there is a way to do it ! If not, this is as stupid as removing cut & paste . Whoever did this "by design" should be fired and quickly before he does other stupid things like that. I'm sorry about venting my frustration like this but this is unbelievable. It means i have to re-format and reload xp or vista back in order to be able to efficiently do my video/slideshow because of such a key feature missing in windows 7.

Please help by suggesting another way of doing it efficiently like before . If no other solution (and i am afraid this is the case from what i have read in your forum) , then please add this urgently at the top of your fix list.

Mechanical instructions that transfers a customized (windows media player) special upload link with facebook. I have a hang over from this. Help. I have tried all optional provided selector options.

I have opened, accessed all visible links and heve not a clue with transferring selected saved photos by activating and authorizing permission that meant i accepted their (microsoft media player) conditions.

Organize Photos By Date And Time

How to organize photos by date and time? I am finally at a a point in life when i am no longer at the bleeding edge of technology and believe it has passed me by. I bought a new laptop with windows 7 so i could organize my photos. However, i cannot find a way to organize my photos by date then time. For example, a recent trip to disney world i have over 1000 photos from 5 different cameras; all have correct date/time stamps and i want to put all of these photos in one folder and organize by date and time.

Each picture's file name begins with the letter of the person that took the photo, and are then number sequentially. All photos are also tagged w/ individuals, park, event, etc. However, i cannot find a way other than date. Once i get them in order i will then make a slide presentation in movie maker. I need help. How do i arrange my photos by date and time?

Error Invalid File Handle When Applying A Tag To A Group Of Photos

I am trying to apply tags to a group of photos. If i select about 10 photos in windows explorer, then go down to the bottom and enter a tag, sometimes i will get at least one error popup. The popup window has a title of "apply properties file" and the error is "invalid file handle". I am given an option to retry, and 90% of the time this succeeds. Any thoughts on what could be going on here?
