Windows 7 photo screen saver delay RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have Win 7 installed on two computers, a desktop and laptop, both of which have delay issues when coming out of the photo screen saver.  There is no 3rd party screen saver software installed.  The delay only happens with the photos screen saver, and have happened since day one of the install.

    The desktop:
    CPU: AMD 9550 (quad core)
    Memory: 8GB
    Video card: 512MB Radeon 4350

    Laptop:
    CPU: AMD Turion 64 ~2.2GHz
    Mem: 2GB
    Video: some crappy onboard SISm760gx chipset 64MB shared.

    Seeing as it's two computers that have the same issue, it seems to be a Windows related issue.

    Any thoughts?

  • Hi,

    How long approximately is the delay? I would like to know if both PCs use the same photoes as screen saver? Do they have exactly the same span before returning to desktop? Do they have the same software installed?

    What happended if using the windows buildin screensaver or use small set of photos? Personalize->Basic and High Contrast Themes->Choose one

    In addition, the onboard video driver on the Laptop is kind of out dated. Download the latest driver to check the result.
