Windows 7 is extremely slow to return to the screen saver mode.

I installed upgrading Windows 7 on my computer and everything is fine.  However, when the system is idle and past in mode screensaver (with or without a password), the return of the screen saver mode are extremely slow (just a white screen).  It is sometimes quick, sometimes it comes back in 3-4 minutes, but most of the time it takes a long time.

The system is a low end, but more than enough to manage w7.  It consist of:
Pentium dual core (2140)
2 gig memory
NVIDIA 7300GT 256M

I tried to delete the zone alarm security suite, does not solve the problem
thought it was the HP 2610 print software, removed and still happens.
update the bios (MSI p4m900)

can someone figure this.  Is there something that prevents him to return to the desktop.

Note that, I try to reboot from the blank screen by pressing the windows, right arrow, return.  But I think also, it does not address key strokes.



I found a way to fix it! I did this:

1. Press win + r and run msconfig. Go to tools and brand to troubleshoot the computer, and then click Start.

2. then go to system and security and press electricityballance (not sure of the name in English because I have a Norwegian version..).

3. restart your computer.

4. my screen saver was not afterwards, but I gave it to display photos and now it works perfectly!

When I checked the general tab afterwards, it did not have the checkbox to use the... start (a last..) one has been verified and the second has a blue full mark.

  • Why when I click on file; then I click on file open does return to the screen saver?

    In the upper left corner is the word leader; When I click on it, and instead of opening my files it rises to the screensaver where I click on Mozilla for everything again. He is a recent problem.

    It sounds as if 'something' is corrupt. This can be the result of an add-on, or it could be that reinstall Firefox will help. Here are a few suggestions of diagnostic:

    First, make a backup of your computer for more security. For backup of Firefox, see back up your information.

    Then, try to start Firefox in Firefox
    Safe mode. Be sure to not "reset" anything permanently if you have no back upward.

    What is fix? If not, try to create a new (empty) profile: profile management.

    If the new profile works, then you can work to track down the problem with your old profile, or the key parameters of travel as your damaged profile to the new profile bookmarks, see: recovery of data from an old profile.

  • Windows Vista Ultimate EXTREMELY slow

    OK, so I installed Windows Vista Ultimate on my computer, I like it, but it is extremely slow.

    The shape of plug the computer are as follows:

    AMD Sempion 1.64 Ghz processor

    480 MB of RAM

    HDD 40 gig

    This should be enough to start. I wonder how can I speed up a bit I've run Diskcheck and defrag and Dick Clean-up with very little progress. Just don't have the money for the extra RAM right now either so if there is a way to speed it up without buying extra RAM, I would like to know.

    It's no surprise that it is extremely slow. You have * way * too little
    RAM and you will never get a decent performance with this amount. 1 GB
    is the minimum necessary for performance * beginning * become
    acceptable for people whose needs are very light (because their)
    using the application is light). But for almost everyone, is at least 2 GB
    really need or that you are satisfied with the performance.
    In addition, a 40 GB hard drive is * small *. This isn't a performance problem,
    but unless you do not do much with your computer, you will be running
    more disk space very soon. You should have at least 160 GB or more.

  • HP 15 ba-015na with Windows 10: Customizing the screen saver

    Hi, I would like to customize the screensaver of my brand new HP 15 ba-015na that came with Windows 10.

    Problem is when I go to the screen saver settings all I have is the screen savers (no more six screensavers of Win10) and the selection button is not highlighted. I tried the mwnu of customization, but there is nothing that I see that would help. OD did I miss something?

    Screen saver of my laptop Toshiba Satellite old made default to the photos on the laptop and they arose at random, which is what I would have on my new HP.

    Grateful for any help. TIA.


    You can do the following.

    Right-click on an empty area of the desktop and select Personalize.

    In the next window, select the screen lock in the left pane, then scroll and select the screen saver settings.

    In the next window, select Photos in the menu drop-down, then click on apply to save the change.

    If you want to change the location of the images are selected, click on the button to the right of the drop down - menu parameters here, you can also select the slideshow speed or activate random playback.

    Kind regards

  • How to activate the screen saver in windows 7?


    Impossible to activate screen saver like menu drop-down is dimmed.

    Need help! This is a very serious problem. Imagine that you watch videos from your laptop connected to HD TV via the Port of the display, the screen is HD and suddenly screen goes black because the screensaver is already activated. Then, you must get up and touch something to recover the picture on your screen. And must repeat the operation every 20 minutes!

    I have Canon set up or do anything with the settings on the screen saver as menu drop-down is dimmed.

    Hi Deyett,

    In Windows 7, the local Group Policy Editor will be available in the professional, Ultimate and Enterprise editions.

    If you have any edition of Windows above, then you can try to open the Group Policy Editor as follows:

    a. click the Start button, type gpedit.msc in the Search box and press ENTER .

    Then you can follow these steps:

    (b) in the left pane, click to expand User Configuration, model of administration, Control Panel, and customization.

    c. in the pane, click with the right button to Activate the screen saver and click Edit.

    (d) to activate the Screen Saver select not configured or enabled.
    Note: Not configured is the default setting.

    It is now the eyes of the Local Group Policy Editor:

  • Windows 7 freezes after the awakening of the screen saver.

    Windows 7 has recently been gel after the awakening of the screen saver that works all night.  This does not happen after shorter periods, to be in screen saver mode.

    I use a (empty) delivered screensaver.  When he wakes up I can open the Control Panel, but I can't open anything else.  If I try to open a Web browser first browser does not open and I can't open the Panel configuration or any other application.  I can't even restart the computer without hitting the power button.

    This is a new Windows machine and it worked fine for several months.  It is a series of of CM5571 ASUS desktop PCs. Pentium E5400 Dual Core CPU. 6 GB of ram 64 bit Windows 7 Home Premium operating system.

    In the event logs, I see errors repeated for SideBySide and volmgr.

    My advice is that you should update the BIOS and motherboard drivers:

    Have you tried updating the BIOS yet?  'freeze upwards after the awakening of the screen saver'-c' is very similar to a problem faced by Vista users with motherboards Asus 2/3 years ago:

    Hope this helps, Gerry Cornell

  • You can set the password to the screen saver different password that the password system on Windows 7

    I want to set the password for the screen saver to something else that the network password that I use. Is this possible in Windows 7?

    It is not possible. When the screensaver starts and then interrupted, the login screen appears. Then, of course, it cannot be a different password.

  • Palm Treo Pro trouble: Windows media player passes each time the screen saver updated

    The treo Pro is an excellent application of low power consumption screensaver that displays date, time and info missed calls. However, the disappointment is that when you listen to music while in screen saver mode, windows media player ignores all the minutes when the clock on the screen saver updates / refreshes.

    Since the clock updates every minute, the player skips a beat with unerring accuracy.

    It's the solution to this problem. Please, do not respond to a 'solution' to disable the screen saver. I who have already tested and am aware of it. I don't want to disable the default screen saver.

    Agree. I discovered that letting Windows media player running on the screen prevents the screen saver from kicking in (which she does if the phone is on the screen today). The screen always shows the player running but will drive according to the configuration.

    With that, the problem is solved when I play music in a car, but it will be a pain when walking or jogging.

    So I guess the only solution is to disable the screen saver with a single operation... desire, I had an app for that!

  • Windows Live Mail extremely slow

    Read your own posts, but they offer no concrete solution.

    Windows Live Mail is extremely slow on all actions, such as selection, type, transmission, reception, everything, to the point where it is impractical and unusable.

    I have a brand new HP Elite, Windows Vista Home Premium x 64, to this day, virus scanned, etc.. All programs work well, including Windows Mail. But Windows Live Mail service is really too slow to be of any use.

    I have not agreed to update to IE8 because of many problems posted with it, that's why I continue to use IE7.

    Is there a real fix to the extremely slow problem Windows Live Mail? The plethora of forums and posts on this specific topic, it seems that we, potential users are out of luck. Please advice and correct.
