Screen saver does not account settings in Windows Media Player when you watch a movie...


Does anyone know how to solve the problem with the screensaver kick watching a movie using Windows Media Player (WMP), even though I unchecked the option to "allow the screensaver during playback" in WMP?

I found that if I start Windows Media Center (WMC) first and watching TV for example or even listen to music in WMC and then then quit, then load WMP to watch an AVI, after the specified time, the screen saver starts, and the film is no longer visible until I move the mouse to stop the screen saver.  I know not if I reboot WMP works perfectly and no screensaver will start, which is not so much that I restart WMC, then switch back to WMP...

Ah yes, guess what, in Windows 7, this problem is solved!

    1. what happens when you set a screen saver? What screensaver you have defined on the computer?

    2. you receive an error message?

    3. did you of recent changes on the computer?

    Method 1

    It is possible that some third-party programs installed on the computer is causing the screen saver does not to work.

    I suggest that you perform a clean boot and check.

    To help resolve the error and other messages, you can start Windows Vista by using a minimal set of drivers and startup programs. This type of boot is known as a "clean boot". A clean boot helps eliminate software conflicts.

    See the link below to learn more about how to clean boot.

    Reset the computer to start as usual

    When you are finished troubleshooting, follow these steps to reset the computer to start as usual:

    (a) click Start, type msconfig in the search box and press ENTER.

    (b) If you are prompted for an administrator password or for confirmation, type your password or click on continue.

    (c) under the general tab, click the Normal startup option, and then click OK.

    (d) when you are prompted to restart the computer, click on restart.

    Method 2

    If the previous step fails then I would suggest that you update the driver for graphics card on the computer visiting the site of graphics card manufacturer.

  • Portege M400: screen saver does not work

    Hi all

    like many of you, I think, I need the screen saver protected by start-up automatically when I let my M400 unattended for some time.
    Everything works fine if the bluetooth is introduced to the wide. Otherwise... the screen saver does not start automatically.

    Site Microsoft learns something about the problems related to (Microsoft mouse) wireless devices that do not allow the screen saver appears.
    The proposed solution is to kill a process called PCMsomething, or download an update windows named KBsomething and install it.

    I actually a bluetooth wireless (non-Microsoft) combined with my PC mouse, but no PCMsomething process is executed and, although my mouse is turned off, the screen saver organizers can't work until I turned off the bluetooth of the M400 too. In addition, windows update does not suggest a KBsomething patch to install (maybe because my mouse is not a Microsoft one?).

    Any idea to solve my problem?
    Thanks in advance.

    Well, usually the common screensaver that are pre-installed on the operating system to work properly. I put t know what screensaver you use, but I guess that you have installed a 3rd party screensaver. In this case you should check these settings. For the most part a screensaver 3rd party has a parameters.

  • Screen saver does not start automatically


    My screensaver stopped automatically to come if I use an excerpt it's turns on and will remain lit.  How can I fix or can uninstall and reinstall?

    It becomes a problem growing with the screen savers. The issue is background programs and services that are enough tasks that the computer never thinks that it becomes "inactive". Programs cannot do any real work, but are cycling through their operations individual enough to keep the computer "awake".

    Try to start your computer with a "clean boot", (see Microsoft Support articles below). If this resolves the issue and you definitely want your screen saver, you'll have to discern what substantive programs and services that you can live without being active all the time, and turn them off.

    How to troubleshoot a problem by performing a clean boot in Windows Vista or in Windows 7

    Perform a clean boot to determine if background programs interfere with your game or program

    For what it's worth, the systems that I watched recently with this problem were 'smart phone' synchronization software recently installed and who is constantly looking for something to synchronize with regardles to know if they are connected to what whether or not. Change the start of these programs and services 'on demand' to 'always' solves the problem in these cases.
