Re: Screensaver is playing on Windows 7

Search your in harddrive for
?*.scr?
then right click on file,click TEST.
observe if they work. If they are not working well, do a proper installation.
If they do, then check out what is initials up at boot time. Sometimes you will observe wireless mouse will send ping to the Operating System showing that a movement has been occurred Media Center may be causing it also.

Re: Screensaver is playing on Windows 7

Re with the help of MSCONFIG I have solve this problem offending software which runs while boot time. The softwar are
DVBDream and MS Intellitype
use DVBDream software to decode my satellite pay TV . This same software did not prevent the screensavers from starting in build 7000.
MS Intellitype is the software for my MS bluetooth keyboard. Interestingly the MS Intellipoint software which manages my MS bluetooth mouse do not restricts it from starting screensavers .

Re: Screensaver is playing on Windows 7

when I start my computer in Safe Mode

It says unable to run 3D text screensaver because it require s 3D video or graphics card
But when I started the computer normally and clicked on settings in the screensaver box it said that it was able to use the 3D text and was compatible.
Is it possible it's saying that my monitor was able to use the 3D text? Please help me ???

Re: Screensaver is playing on Windows 7

the main thing is window 7 does not work if having mouse and keyboard connecting via bluetooth You can also try system restore to a point in time that may make it work.? Will the Screen Saver will work in a after a clean boot?
