Why the screen saver does not work in the two screens?

I have a monitor connected to my laptop using the VGA connector.
Laptop LCD is set as the primary display and the additional monitor is defined as the extended desktop. When the screen saver appears, it shows on the main screen. How can I make it work on both? (without setting the external display as a clone of the hand).
The OS is Vista Home Premium

Thanks for any help!

In dual screen extended mode, Win7 screen saver stops working after unpluging external monitor

I have problems of this kind.

I have listed what I've done to illustrate how to reproduce this.

My OS is win7 32 bit.

The replication steps are

1. start on OS with integrated display (it is the system of n. b.)

2. attach the HDMI (external monitor).

3. turn on the extended mode and HDMI monitor as the primary device.

4. set the screen saver 3D to be active and preview.

Screensaver 3D drawing now works on the main screen.

the secondary monitor (built-in monitor) working with black screen.

5. hot unplug a HDMI monitor.

6. the display of the 3D screen saver is changed back to the built-in screen.

7. BUT the drawing of 3D on the built-in screen screensaver is STOPPED (= NOT updated).

8 move the mouse, built-in monitor escapes from the idle screen status (operating system is still alive)

Is this an OS behave as expected?

    Hi garybuyit,

    Thanks for posting your question in the Microsoft answers Forums.

    Just so I'm clear, updated you the graphics cards in Device Manager? You have access to a Windows XP installation disc. If so, follow the steps in this document to make a scan of the SFC. This analysis will attempt to repair or replace any missing or corrupted system files.

  • screen saver does not work when magic jack is pluged in. unplug mj it works

    screen saver does not work when magic jack is pluged in. unplug taking magic, the screensaver works properly.

    09/05/10 the MagicJack has released an update that prevents the screen saver and "standby" mode. They are aware that people are upset on this issue, but they seem not to care.

    Here is a simple solution to the problem. I've used it since 10/09/10 and it works perfectly.

    Restore the functionality of screen saver / display after MagicJack diverted these features...

    Click on the Start button in Windows 7

    type cmd in the search box

    Right click on cmd and run as administrator if you are not running as an administrator it will not work!

    type: powercfg /requestsoverride PROCESS magicJack.exe DISPLAY

    Make sure that you type the capitol letters and lowercase no look of magic make 'J' ack it's capitol as well!

    Press enter

    Now unplug your magicjack

    Restart your computer and let the unplugged MagicJack

    Once the computer starts together your screensaver for a minute then let it sit for a minute activate screen saver...

    Now plug your magic let sit for one minute Alto screen saver is now active!

    If you want to activate the sleep as well, follow the same instructions as above, but simply type this line instead.

    type: powercfg /requestsoverride PROCESS magicJack.exe DISPLAY SYSTEM

    If you follow these instructions, your sleep/screen mode will work as before.

    Kind regards

  • Screen saver does not work in the new update of El Capitan

    Comes through the new update to El Capitan (10.11.2) and now the screensaver will not automatically start using one of the hot corners.  I checked the preferences and assigned for each of the 4 corners screen saver and it does not work.  What is going on?

    Remove the screen saver preferences file. com Apple.Screensaver.com

    This file is located in the Preferences of your user library folder.

    In the Finder, select go from the menu bar, press the option/alt key and library should appear in the drop-down list.

    Click to open it in the Finder, go to Preferences, then move the screensaver in the trash preferences file. don't delete yet.

    Restart the mac. Enter the preferences you want to screen saver in system preferences.

    I hope it should work.

    Hello

    Functions of the screen saver and sleep depend on the computer to detect an idle state. An idle state is reached when the computer detects no activity on the system. Once reached the idle state, it must maintain a State of rest for the period that you define in the element.

    If you have any device connected to the system that periodically checks for a specific action, this device can cause the system to achieve or maintain an idle state.

    Some devices, such as a device of VOIP phone that checks for incoming phone calls is an example. If you have a MagicJack or any other similar device, try to remove them and check if this solves the problem.

    Another culprit is an e-mail or instant messaging program that periodically checks for new messages.

    Tell us what you find.

  • 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.
