Hello all, with vista, I use the Windows Photos Screen saver. However, in the settings if I use any other theme besides "classic", the screensaver will not close when I move the mouse or hit the keyboard, it just sticks there. The system isnt frozen, I can can ctrtl-alt-delete out of it and everything is fine. It is just kind of annoying. Anyone experienced this?

Hi,
I have a Dell 1750 Inspiron laptop that I use "as a desktop" as every piece of hardware is connected to it.
It runs with Windows 7 Home Edition. It has a 4gb memory and a 450gb hard drive which is less than half used.

I have the screen saver set to Photos and usually have a cut-in time of 1 hour idle.

The screen saver cuts in exactly when it should and scrolls through my photos for as long as the laptop is left idle.

However, as soon as I touch the mouse/keyboard, instead of reverting to the "normal" screen the photos disappear, the blank screen fades for a few seconds and then a message appears in a box, saying that the Photos Screen Saver is not responding, and gives the options of either close the program or wait for the programme to respond. Waiting doesn't seem to work so I have to click on close the programme and then cancel the statement that Windows will try to find a solution, because it doesn't!

I have tried to vary the time before the screen saver kicks in, anything from 1 minute to several hours but it doesn't seem to make any difference.

Can anyone help please?

A:Photo Screen Saver wont revert back to live screen

Have you checked the timing for when the HDD turns off or Sleep or Hibernation kicks in [I disable both of those and lengthen the time on the HDD to several hours], Control Panel, Power Options?

The reason I mentioned the HDD is the symptoms you mentioned seem to apply. The screen saver could be in memory and not affected by the HDD until it's asked for something.

Running Windows 7 64Bit Pro here...

When I put an SD card, or USB stick into my PC, the drive letter that is assigned is totally random. For example, I put the SD card from my camera into the PC yesterday and it appears as drive F:. Today I put a USB stick into my PC and now IT is using drive F:.

I would like each reader port on my PC to have a specific letter. My SD card should always be F:, CF reader G:, XD card reader H:, USB ports I: up to whatever.

If necessary I can install extra software on the Windows PC, but I don't want to have to put specific files on the memory cards themselves.

I just bought an external burner since the burner on my laptop is dying, but I can't get iTunes to use the external to burn. It can read the CD's that I put in to play/import but when I click on burn the laptop's drive pops open and iTunes asks me to insert the CD, even though I have a blank CD in the external.

My system Froze up and went to a black screen; upon reboot it wouldn't get past the BIOS load screen. I reset the CMOS and now everything works fine except an issue with the photo screen saver. The other screen savers work, but the photo screen saver will not. When I try to go into settings with the photos screen saver selected it looks like it loads something but nothing pops up, and then the screen saver window becomes unusable. It doesn't freeze but it acts like there is a second dialog box open and it's waiting for you to finish with that dialog box (if you know what I mean). I can't preview with photos selected either, but it doesn't become unusable.

A:Photo screen saver won't work.

I would be more concerned with what caused the major crash than little problem with the photo ss.

For that you can try running

If you can find a c:\windows\minidump folder and zip the contents of it and attach it to your next post that would be great.
If there's nothing in there or the folder doesn't exist nevermind, I'm just curious what caused the hard reset.

A:Vista screen saver wont show photo titles

If I remember correctly, the XP screensaver you are referring to doesn't do that (I don't have an XP machine up and running to verify). And for that matter, I don't think the Vista one works any differently (odds are, I'm seeing the same thing as you in my 32bit version of Home Premium, and the closest I see in the settings for that screensaver are 'tagging' options, which I'm pretty sure won't do what you're asking for ).

Are you sure you're not mistaking it for a third party screensaver perhaps? I know Google's Photo Screensaver lists details like that.

This was originally posted in the Server 2012 forum, but perhaps it's more applicable to Windows 7.

            




I've joined the Windows 7 Pro workstations to the Domain using the SERVER2012/Connect app and that seemed to work fine.  I made the Users all Standard, not Admin, and access to the Shared folders is working fine too.  Users appear to be in the
Administrators group on the local machine, which is what I need.
However, a number of our applications aren't working correctly ... one writes changes to HKey Current User and those changes will not stick.  Some IE sites that require changes have to be made each time; those changes don't save.  Some
of the ODBC connections to SQL databases are behaving strangly as well.  I tried checking permissions on the Windows Registry keys, and they looked OK.  Turning off User Access Control did not help either.
If I log on to the workstation not using the Domain Account I don't have this problem.  And, one of the workstations which had performed the Windows 10 Upgrade while connected to the previous Domain Controllder works fine.
Any direction would be greatly appreciated!   Thx DMiller

I remember a general rule of thumb with any NT server, but especially one that is used as a file/print server. That rule is that you don't set a screen saver on it. If you did this would there be a noticeable performance drop in the network? My reason for asking is because there's a very small network (1 NT 4 server, 8 workstations (nt and 95)) that was (is) having some network problems with incredibly slow performance. Among other things I noticed a screen saver was set on the server. I turned it off and am running perfmon all day today to see what happens, but I'm wondering if that one thing could have been the main problem. What do you think?
 

A:Screen saver on NT server - BAD, right???

There is really no reason for a screen saver on any PC or server in my opinion. They look neat and that is about it. My experience has been that they obey Murphy's law when it comes to the timing of demand for system resources with other necessary applications. The very first PC (Windows 3.11) I ever had on a network (Banyan) would lock up and give "out of environment space" (despite having the shell command in config.sys set upwards of 2048) at the moment the screen saver kicked on. Since then I've seen many users both on and off networks, running Win9x and NT on either Banyan or NT NOS with regular repeating unexplained "blue screens", "lock ups", "slow downs" and so on that amazingly coincided with the idle time their screen saver was set for.

If you want security and a screen saver, NT has a great one built in, press CTRL+ALT+DEL to login.

Hope that helps,

All of my "Idle" settings take effect despite not being idle. I have set my power managment settings to turn off my screen after being idle for 20 minutes. Rather than turning the screen off after being idle for 20 minutes, the screen turns off every 20 minutes regardless of whether or not I've been idle. The screen immediately comes back on as it typically turns off in the middle of my typing an email or a forum post. I have tried this on various time settings, as low as a minute and as high as 20 minutes. It seems that my system activity is not recognized (i.e. my typing and mouse usage) unless the system is specifically looking for activity, such as when the power management system has taken affect and the screen saver has come on, or the display shuts down, etc. This isn't a huge deal except that, when my settings included going to my lock screen I had to put my credentials in every time that the system shut off the display. I've read the solutions that suggest setting all of my power managmeent options to "never". This is simply not an acceptable solution. If I am using my computer in a public place and I get up to get a cup of coffee, I want my computer to lock itself after 5 minutes of inactivity.

It also changed my Screen saving into a short loop of a blue screen saying a problem has been detected on this computer and needs to restart... Then it shows the Windows vista start up screen and loops back again.

So what I did was fix the boot record (just in case) and I also tried to manually fix the registry by going to the winlogon place and setting the shell value to explorer.exe. The problem is that the value keeps changing back to cmd.exe /k start cmd.exe. I am going to check on the value of userInit. If I can't get a solution im going to try and do a reapair install. I know RDPing can help but I can't do that. Anyone have any idea of how to fix this?
 
ALSO: I had a nanocore backdoor that I removed from my computer right before restarting.

Hello there,
I am a newbie here and would appreciate any help here. I had removed and subsequently re-installed the SONY Home Network Multimedia software that was pre-installed on the my SONY laptop.
The change I did was to installed the Multi-media software on my 'D' drive instead of the default C:\Document Settings\All Users\Photo Server\VAIO Media. The reason for the change was that I want to store the photo images on the 'D' drive instead of the 'C' drive . The hard-drive is partitioned to two drives i.e 'C:\' for the operating system and program files and 'D:\' drive for data.
However after re-installing the VAIO Media photo server on the D drive, I am not able to 'see' the photo server..How do i get the photo server on the D drive to work. or be visible to the VAIO Media net work..?

Thanks for your help...
 

A:Sony Vaio Photo server -Installation to 'D' drive

Most systems that have dual partitioned drives are seperated for a reason, I have a compaq and the "D" drive is just for system specific drivers I/E ..don't mess with it !

I would suggest you reinstall the multimedia content back to the "C" drive and leave D alone, just make a folder for your pictures and back them up occasionally...Rhett

I have a drive that has a lot of information on it that I need. A user left our company and all of his files are on this drive. I was handed it and asked to build a VM with all his information on it. When I plug the drive in it loads the drivers and shows
up just fine in Computer Management (shown below), but not in Computer. So I think, ok, I'll just add a drive letter but that option is greyed out and won't let me. The disk is initialized and appears to be healthy. I have gone to device manager and made sure
there were no problems there as well. It was also an external drive so I removed it and made it an internal drive on my machine but got the same results. It shows up in BIOS but obviously can't boot off of it since it is not an OS drive.
Deleting/formatting the drive is not an option. Is there a way to get this drive accessible without that? Deleting it is the exact opposite of what I want done here. 
Thanks!

A:Change Drive Letter and Paths... greyed out. Can't assign drive letter.

That looks like a mac formatted drive, that's why it wont work on your PC. Try installing Paragon HFS+ for Windows.
