Customization :: Screensaver Not Working After Update

Dec 14, 2015

I updated today from Windows 7 to 10, and everything seems to be working great except for a screensaver I purchased a few years ago. I know it's a relatively minor problem, but it worked fine on 7.

The screensaver worked by taking a screenshot when initialized, and displayed various effects over that image.

Now when I attempt to run the screensaver I get the following error:

I'm not running any other programs whatsoever, so I wonder if a core Windows process is now interfering with this?

Screensaver Doesn't Work With Pictures

Dec 6, 2015

I know some people have had issues with the screensaver not working. In my case all the screensavers work, except the one I want -pictures. I have always used pictures as a screensaver with other windows os with no problem.

What happens is I can see the pictures scrolling in the mini monitor it shows you, but when I hit preview or when it goes into action, the screen goes black. I have tried using different folders in different drives and using different pictures, but still nothing but black.

All Screens Are Small When Returning From Screensaver

Sep 25, 2015

I use a 32" LED TV as a monitor. I have for the last 4 years happily through Windows 7 and 8.1.

Since moving over to Windows 10 if I walk away from my desktop for an extended period my screen is switched off as I expect but, when i jiggle my mouse the screen wakes up okay but ALL my screens have been resized much smaller.

This effects Firefox (full screen), Skype and even my 4 screens on my Arduino microprocessor IDE.

I have my display setting to "turn off after 30 minutes" and "sleep" never. Strangely it has to be much longer than that for the effect to happen. If I go away for, say, 50 minutes. Come back, jiggle the mouse - everything comes back okay. But if I go away for 90 minutes or more, for instance, all the screens are semi minimised when I jiggle mouse and the monitor (TV) wakes up.

Very annoying to have to resize all my screens every time. I have checked all my settings (they are unchanged for years) and it never happened before I updated to W10.

Screensaver Does Not Work With Dual Monitors

Jan 22, 2016

I've read pretty much all of the solutions offered up the the screensaver issues in Windows 10 [and the variety of issues indicates Microsoft has some work to do], but none of them seem to work for me.

I don't care about saving my monitor, or watching pretty pictures, or saving power. I need the screensaver for security reasons to lock the screen after an unattended time period. Apparently nobody else uses this feature, or if they do they haven't posted the problem on the web, or I simply haven't found it.

1. This is a clean install of Windows 10 Home. The dual monitors were installed AFTER the initial install, and the screensaver worked fine with that configuration. I'm now using an Nvidia Quadro NVS 295 graphics card with two identical Dell monitors. The latest driver is installed (dated Oct 2015).
2. I have no HID devices other than a wireless mouse and keyboard. I have tried a different mouse and keyboard to no effect. I have tried disabling the HID devices one by one to no avail.
3. If I disconnect one monitor at the computer, the screensaver still doesn't come on.
4. I have the screensaver set to "Blank", and the preview function works perfectly well, blanking both monitors.

No further way to try, other than buying a new graphics card and seeing if that solves the problem. The fact that the preview function works dissuades me from thinking the problem lies with the card.

After Upgrade No Screensaver Or Sleep Mode

Aug 4, 2015

I upgraded from 7 to 10. The upgrade was smooth and I didn't see any issues immediately. But, after setting the power and screen saver settings, the monitor never went into standby and screen savers won't start. I did not try hibernation because I never used it before. I discovered that didn't work either. So, I regressed back to 7 and everything works as before. So, as a test, I installed a spare HDD and did a clean install from USB. Same issues as the upgrade. Maybe I'm nit-picky, but I want the monitor to go to power saver after 5 minutes.

Screensaver Won't Activate - Display Won't Shut Off

Aug 1, 2015

I just upgraded to Windows 10 from Win 7, and am having the following problem:

After sitting idle for several hours, the screensaver never activates and the display doesn't go into power save mode. I've tried numerous settings to resolve it, but with no luck so far. Currently the settings I'm using are the same as they were in Windows 7, where everything functioned correctly. These settings are:

Power options: High performance (modified)
HDD set not to turn off
USB selective suspend disabled
PCI Express link state power management disabled
Minimum CPU state 100%

Screensaver to activate after 15 minutes
Display to shut off after 30 minutes

These may not be the optimal settings, but they worked in Windows 7, and even using more restrictive power settings hasn't resolved the issue since the upgrade.

Speakers Not Working After Update

Nov 28, 2015

I have a 5.1 surround sound speaker system connected to my computer, which has always worked fine when running windows 7, however as soon as I upgraded, windows 10 will not play any sound through them.

- The volume is turned up on the system as well as the speakers
- Not on mute
- Have tried reinstalling the drivers

I can't think what else it would be. When I open up the playback device menu, it says that sound should be playing through the speakers, however I get nothing.

What baffles me is when I open realtek HD Audio manager to test all of the speakers, I can make them play a sample sound through that, however no other applications will play sound.
