Power Settings for Screen Display aren't working

Q: Power Settings for Screen Display aren't working

Before I deleted the Lock Screen with password sign-in (I thought this might correct problem); that when I hit the Lock Screen to bring up the field to insert password that it would fade-out a bit. Shortly after my power settings were no longer taking hold and my PC desktop screen would stay on for all hours.

Preferred Solution: Power Settings for Screen Display aren't working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Your graphics card might be dying. Not sure though. Does it say your drivers are not compatible or that your card is not compatible?

I have my power plan set to Energy Star with display brightness set around 40% when on battery and 100% when plugged in. It seems to get reset periodically to the default which 40% for both battery and plugged in. I haven't been able to reliably reproduce the problem but every few days the plugged in setting gets reset to 40%. Is this a known problem with Windows 7?

A:Power plan settings aren't persistent

Hello Goob, and welcome to Seven Forums.

I've had this happen to me on my laptop a few times as well. It seems to be either happening after a graphics driver update, or after some unknown Windows Update that seems to reset this setting.

You might check your Windows Updates history to see if something has been installed when it happens next to see if you notice the same thing or not.

Hope this helps some,

A:keys aren't working correctly(Using on screen keyboard)

Sounds like it could be a mechanical fault Keyboards work as a matrix of switches and if there is a problem with the interconnections it can sometimes cause apparently random failures such as yours. If you were getting the wrong characters I would suspect a software issue, (which of cause it still may be),

My best advice is to see if you can find a local Tech that gives free estimates for repairs and let them diagnose it for you, if you were dealing with a desktop it would be a simple swap out of the keyboard but laptops are not that easy to either get at the keyboard to check/change or to pick up a keyboard for testing.

Whenever I use any media player (windows, realplayer etc), my monitor will not go to standby in 10 minutes as I specified in my power settings after I stop using the computer and close all programs. If I log off of windows and log back on, the monitor will go to standby in 10 minutes again. Or if I go to display properties and reselect the standby time I want and apply the settings, the monitor will go to standby in 10 mins again until I use a media player and then I must do the above again every time.

A:graphics display power settings

those settings are set to put your monitor on standby after 10 minutes of your computer being inactive.
So if you have media player open, and playing music, it is not inactive, so it will think you are still using the computer, therefore it won't put the monitor on standby.

Do you just want to play music while your going to sleep or something? there are some programs you can download to shutdown/restart/change to standby mode at a specified time. This might be kind of what you are looking for?

Try this(its free):
Its called shutdown manager or something like that, but it gives you the option to make it automatically go on standby mode or hybernate, or shutdown entirely, at a specified time.

Hello all I have Samsung Displays in my room that is connected with my PC is a Question! and Display Consumption Settings Power Samsung LCD Monitor that has native x resolution and the nd one is a new Samsung LED Monitor that has a native x resolution that is just connected with my PS which I hardly use Now as I have noticed the power Display Settings and Power Consumption Question! consumption of my LCD is watts typical and LED is watts typical on official specs on the website I have a small factor UPS connected to my PC as we have frequent power outages black Display Settings and Power Consumption Question! outs in our country and I was wonder if I swap both displays Display Settings and Power Consumption Question! and connect the LED with my PC it will save at approx watts straight according to the official specs also not that the LED comes with a v adapter So will it help Also if I swap display will it shuffle my desktop settings as in icons gadgets etc just asking out of curiosity as I have some custom settings on the desktop which I don't want to mess around with for a time being

A:Display Settings and Power Consumption Question!

Ok BB mate I think as long as the machine's hardware supports the LED monitor / screen then there should not be an issue. Now that does seem like a fairly low res for monitors these days - any reason??

I don't see why the icons should be shuffled around either because the machine is generating them not the monitor that is receiving the signal.

Now you mention the LED does not come with a 12v adaptor and I ma wondering why that should be an issue as long as it is powered from somewhere it should have no relevance to it operating normally.

It is good though that you save on the power and I guess you know already but it is due to the use of LED's to light the screen as opposed to a fluorescent tube/s. Again you probably know already that the current draw of an LED is typically very small compared to other forms of lighting.

Does it actually turn off the GPU, or just the output of the GPU to the monitor so that your monitor turns off by itself.

So if your computer sits idle with a high-end GPU, will is still waste electricity from the GPU churning? Or only the CPU is working?

Hello Everyone,

I'm currently using an Asus Notebook G72GX series with Windows 7 Home Premium. This computer uses Kaspersky Antivirus 2011.

Not long ago, I misspelled a URL that sent me to a suspicious looking webpage. From that point forward, I began receiving fake survey popups on legitimate websites like "Forbes" and even Shortly after, my computer starting having a mind of its own. For example, my power options keep changing. Every time I make a change (even setting it to default), it reverts back at start up. Sometimes I can't change the plan at all. The same goes for my display settings.

Now Firefox is giving me "untrusted" warnings on safe sites, indicating that my browser may have been hijacked. These all sound like classic virus/malware symptoms but my antivirus is detecting NOTHING.

I've just installed a "GateKeeper" ( which locks/unlocks the desktop based on my proximity to my desktop PC.

It works beautifully, but is a little odd when my display has gone into power saving mode whilst the desktop is locked... I approach the PC, and the desktop unlocks, and is ready for use, but the display stays blank as it is in power saving mode. I have to move the mouse (or press a key, perhaps) before I can see what I'm doing.

Is there some way to automatically bring the display out of power saving mode whenever there's a transition from locked to unlocked? I suspect this won't be possible, as there's probably no API for the power-saving mechanism. I certainly can't find any settings in power management that would control this behaviour.

A:Tying the display power settings with the lock/unlock functions.

No settings in GateKeeper? You can ask them if no one here knows.

I use Performance mode, and set it to NEVER turn off ANYTHING, including the monitor.

I hit apply, etc etc.

It will hold this setting for a while, then after a reboot, or turning off at night, it loses this setting, and reverts to turn off monitor after 20 minutes.

Why is Windows 7 doing this?

BTW, Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit Signature Edition is what I am using.

A:Power settings in Win 7 not working?

Go into "change advanced power settings" where you choose to never turn off the monitor. Scroll down and make sure the "display" (and anything else...HD, etc...) setting is "never" there also. Be logged on as administrator when doing this.

I have noticed this setting not following what I set on a clients machine. That fixed it.

I am running win7 7000 x64 on a quad core intel box. Most things have been working great but I have been having one annoying problem, the screensaver won't start, and neither will the power saving settings (i.e. turning off monitor, computer sleep)

Basically I am wondering if anyone else has had a similar problem and figured out what software or hardware could be causing it or if anyone knows of a tool to check what input is keeping the computer out of the idle state.

With build 7000 you may need to find updated drivers for your chipset for this to work.

Alternatively, you could upgrade to 7048 or a newer build (7068 seems to be getting votes for the most stable, and 7077 as well)

A:Display Settings on Alternate Screen

It works fine on my brothers HP laptop. When you connect the HDMI, click on action center and then click on "project" Then make sure you select "second screen only". If it's just cloning your main display it will use the resolution from the main display.
Your Hdmi cable/tv may also not support transmitting the necessary info for the video card to change the resolution. But in any event you can go to display settings/advanced display settings to set it there. There's no real saving unless you install a driver for your tv. Everything is typically done via hdmi communication.

A:Display Properties/Settings/Screen Resolution

To change your display back to its original configuration, you need to reboot in Safe Mode. To boot in Safe Mode and reset the display, follow the steps below:

While your computer is booting, follow the appropriate instructions for your version of Windows:

In Windows 2000 and XP, when the Power On Self Test is complete (after the first time you hear the computer beep), press and hold the F8 key.
In Windows 98 and Me, when the Power On Self Test is complete (after the first time you hear the computer beep), press and hold the Ctrl key.
In Windows 95, press and hold the F8 key after "Starting Windows 95" appears on a black background.

Select the option to boot in Safe Mode.

Once in Safe Mode, go to the display settings by right-clicking the desktop and then clicking the Settings tab. Then you can change the display settings back to the original configuration.

To restore the correct settings, shut down and restart the computer by clicking Start and selecting Shut Down, then Restart, then OK.

Weird. It seems that you definitely have the wrong resolution.
Sorry if I am asking you old stuff but. Did you set the resolution through:
Right click desktop/personalize - Display setiings -
With your card, I would say also that you could set it to 72, although that is not a factor with your problem.

ANother area you might want to look in is Control panel/Ease of access(I'm using the Control panel -classic view) Look under "make the computer easier to see" Look particularly under "make things on the screen larger" It should be on 96DPI.

It works perfect.. I can set it to use both monitors or extend to the other monitor.. all perfect

Any sugguestions???

Basically I'm trying to get rid of the delay between pressing a key and being able to use the mouse When I pressing keys I can't use the mouse at the same time - there is a short delay until the touchpad kicks into action Very annoying when playing games I fixed it before but since updating the driver it's a problem again I went to settings gt devices gt mouse amp touchpad and underneath quot Touchpad quot it says quot To help prevent the cursor from accidentally moving while you type change the delay before clicks work quot I changed it from quot Medium delay quot to quot No delay always on quot I thought this is what I did to fix it before but maybe I'm wrong Doing that hasn't seemed to make a single bit of difference even after Settings taking aren't effect restarting a couple of times I messed around a bit and noticed that when I tried something as simple as changing the primary mouse button from the left to the right that didn't change either Even after restarting But the strange Settings aren't taking effect thing is that when I go back to settings it's still showing up that it is changed AKA the right mouse button still set as the primary button - despite the fact that the left is still working as the primary and the right is still right-clicking Which leads me to believe that maybe changing the touchpad setting to quot No delay always on quot IS the right setting to fix my problem - but it just won't take effect Please help me it's driving me absolutely mad Especially as I imagine hope it's a simple fix I can't seem to see any quot apply quot button so I don't know what I'm doing wrong Please and thanks

A:Settings aren't taking effect

Hi, have a look at this:
Recently installed Windows 10. Can't move mouse while typing. - Windows 10 Forums

If I press a key, and hold it down, I can still move the cursor with the touchpad. Not changed any settings to do that though.

I changed the settings in my computer regarding display. I have tried right clicking on the screen and readjusting everything to where it should be. The problem I am having is my even online my email is blurry and the colors are off. The same thing with my pictures for instance Picasa. Everything is off with color and brilliance. I have tried to go back to System Restore and have done that. Really all I want to do is to go back to the default settings. How do I do that??? Thanks for any help!

A:How do I go back to Default Settings for my display/screen/internet etc. Appearance?

To start your computer by using the Last Known Good Configuration feature, follow these steps:

Start your computer.
When you see the "Please select the operating system to start" message, press the F8 key.
When the Windows Advanced Options menu appears, use the ARROW keys to select Last Known Good Configuration (your most recent settings that worked), and then press ENTER.
If you are running other operating systems on your computer, use the ARROW keys to select Microsoft Windows XP, and then press ENTER.

This stoopid user had her computer crawling with viruses, opened the file common in MSN messenger and an angelina jolie video.exe

ANyway... removd the viruses and all that but it also installed a desktop background about the computer being infected and that it needs an antivirus and anti spyware to be installed.

ALso the screensaver is set to some kind of blue screen of death, logon screen windows startup screens that fooled me for a bit thinking the computer had crashed.

I want to change the SS and desktop background but those options are disabled in the display settings.

Any way to re-activate them so I can change SS and background?

Just curious if anyone knows of a quick way to change the power settings and/or screen saver without having to right click on desktop and choose properties. It's not that it's that hard to do it this way, but I was curious if there was some utility or batch file that could be created to quickly switch between settings.

I use a Logitech M310 wireless mouse on my Win 7 computer, and I prefer a fast speed. So I typically right click on my desktop and then go to the Personalize screen. From there I click on Change Mouse Pointers, Pointer Options, and then I select a fast pointer speed.

But each time I restart my computer, my fast pointer speed is lost and I'm back to where it started at medium speed.

How can I get my mouse settings to save? My settings for Desktop Background and Screen Saver are saved, but not my mouse pointer speed. Thanks in advance.......

A:Wireless Mouse Settings Aren't Saved in Restart

Have you installed the Logitech mouse software, if not, go to the Logitech website & find the M310 mouse & locate the software download for it making sure you have either the 32 bit or 64 bit version that your Windows 7 is. Download it & then install it.

This will provide you with a program that you can use to customise your mouse settings.

A:External display settings change when Power options change?

Check to see what resolution your laptop's display is at, what the external TV resolution is when you connect it to your laptop, and MAYBE what resolution the videos you're watching are. This just sounds like a resolution issue. If the TV is at a larger resolution than your laptop's resolution, change the TV's resolution to the size your laptop is at. Then try watching a video to see what happens. Hope this helps.

So I recently got a second monitor so I can work with two screens at once As I kind of expected I had to calibrate the monitors so their colors brightness and all everything else match each other But how much I may try I can't manage to calibrate them properly Worse both monitors seem to be calibrated from tests yet they still don't match It's hard to explain what the differences are so I included pictures of them in the attachments Take in mind that they're photo's from my phone since screenshots obviously wouldn't work The first one monitorDifference blackgrayOnSteam jpg is made by placing the steam same Dual colors/display aren't the showing monitors client over the two screens The left side is from the new monitor which seems to be more dark green and the right side is the old monitor which seems to be more light grey The second one are monitorDifference foxOld jpg old screen and monitorDifference foxNew jpg new screen which are from with a wallpaper The old one seems to be more dull and brighter while the new one seems to be more colorful warmer and darker Just for the sake of having enough information the old monitor is an Asus VH H which I have for almost two years and the new Dual monitors aren't showing the same colors/display one is a LG Flatron IPS which is just a few days old These differences aren't everywhere or not as noticeable but there are plenty things like the above two examples where the differences are big and annoying So the question is how can I fix this difference problem and make the monitors match properly

A:Dual monitors aren't showing the same colors/display

Are you using the sRGB colour profiles on both monitors?

It could be simply down to the age of the monitors - you probably didn't notice the changes with your old one until you hooked up your new one along side it. You might need to set the colour/brightness/contrast/temperature settings individually on one or both monitors to compensate for this.

Hello all. I recently decided i was going to re-install XP. installed the beginning files, rebooted computer, and decided it was going to be more of a hastle than I thought. I started up windows regularly, and all was well.

then i noticed there was something up with the monitor display. seems the drivers had uninstalled. no worries, I check the device manager, and the two display adapters had a yellow exclamation point near them. No worries! I uninstalled both, and restarted. windows found them, they re-installed, i installed my monitor drivers, and all was well.


I restarted my computer the next day. and the same problem. the display adapters aren't staying 'found'. and i'm forced to uninstall them, restart, have the comp find them again, and then re-install the monitor drivers.

whats going on with my computer? :(

A:Display Adapter problems - they aren't staying installed!

Did you try installing a different (possibly newer) driver(s)? Do you know what model/make your graphics card is? If so, go to the manufacturers website and get the newest driver for it. Sometimes Windows automatically finding drivers for devices doesn't always work perfectly.

One other possibility---though its a stretch--is that you possibly also installed software which doesn't allow any alterations to the os and rolls the system back after each reboot. I have Online Armor installed on one of my systems and I have to allow for any changes made to my system. It's unlikely that this is what's going on, but not impossible.

A:DVD-R Disks Aren't Working

I'm using a store brand of DVDRW.Click to expand...

Always buy quality media. Store brands usually aren't. Also, DVDRW media, isn't very reliable. Use DVD-R as you listed in the title of the thread. You can try this, but I don't think it's gonna fix your problem. I think your problem is the media you used.

Go into your Device Manager, and find your drive. Right click on it, and choose "Uninstall". After it uninstalls, reboot, and let Windows detect new hardware, and install new a driver for you.

I have tried to tell people that this is what happens when you use Memorex, Khypermedia, and most store brands of media (mostly any media made in Taiwan. Verbatim is the exception). They record ok, and look ok the first time or two you watch them. But when you go back, to watch them again, they may be unwatchable. When buying blank dvds, look on the package for "Made In Japan". It's usually near the bar code. That's not saying you'll never have problems. But you'll have a lot less problems associated with bad media. Sony, Maxell,and Fuji, are good brands, if you get the ones "Made In Japan" (MIJ). MIJ Fuji discs are getting very hard to find though. Verbatim is the only Taiwan made (MIT) media, you should consider.

If the reinstall of the hardware, through the device manager works, I'd copy your discs over to better media, while you can. If it doesn't, I don't think there's much you can do to save what you've burned. I think most software used to encode and burn dvds, puts the files in a folder, on your hard drive. You may find the files for one burned dvd. If you used the same software to do all the dvds, it uses the same folder and overwrites what's in it, each time you do another dvd. That's why I say you might find files for one dvd you burned.
Good luck!

I had this problem since I upgraded to Vista. All softwares I used before in Windows XP worked without any problem, but most of them now support Vista and they are giving me tons of problems everyday.
What is this happening?

A:Why softwares aren't working?

Software makers have got to rewrite their code to make it work with Vista. Keep checking the maker of the software websites for Vista updates.

So I have a laptop which is an Hp probook in which my webcam isn't working. It happened like 2 months ago. I started to check for every solution but nothing worked, then I bought a new webcam so that maybe it works but it also didn't work. I checked the device manager and it says that the device is working properly for both of the webcams but when I check it with the hp camera it tells me that the camera is either used by another software or is not connected. it also doesn't work on other stuff like skype and fb and others. Can somebody help me please.

I recently got given a Microsoft Wireless MultiMedia Keyboard 1.1 Model: 1014

So, my speaker drivers are updated and installed. My speakers are plugged in correctly ( I think). If I put the speaker at full blast I can hear the on, but no music or sound. Help please!! I can be reached on AIM at Illidansowner

Or you can just post here

A:Speakers aren't working :(

Two things to try left click on speaker icon in task bar and see if mute is checked for some reason this happens fairly often if it is uncheck it. Did the speakers ever work? Recheck all connections and try a system restore back to when they worked All this is assuming you're using xp.

OK, so I'll try to keep this as brief as I can,

I have a L4VXA2 motherboard and operate on windows XP SP3. (if that info is needed at all)

Currently, my usb ports have not been recognizing anything I plug into them.
I uninstalled and reinstalled the drivers twice, still nothing works.
When I try and fix it, it keeps telling me the INF is formatted for windows 95 or later (or something like that)

So now, I have downloaded a VIA USB 2.0 Host Controller, extracted the files, everything was going fine, but now the setup wont run! For the first few times I clicked on it, it kept saying "the setup has detected that unInstallShield is in use. Please close uninstall shield and restart setup Error 432". I rebooted the computer and tried again multiple times. Now the error message doesn't even show up.

I have NO idea what to do, please, PLEASE help :'(

Hi I recently had a new motherboard and lcd screen installed on my Dell inspiron After the tech guy installed the new reconditioned parts and left I went to move my laptop and the screen went black upon unplugging it I went into the bios and made sure that the settings were up on brightness on battery and it was all the way up If I plug it back in it is fine I called the tech that had just left my home and he said that due to him already closing that ticket I had to call Dell and open another The working screen power. not LCD battery on issue was that I was out of warranty that day this was his rd trip due to a faulty motherboard twice I explained to Dell this was an issue that only happened after the guy changed the lcd screen and it never happened before He told me I needed a new battery I knew mine was old but it had a little life in it i knew this wasn t the problem So I had to order a new battery and it obviously didn t fix the problem I called Dell back and they refused to help me due to being out of warranty I again exclaimed that it was due to the LCD screen not working on battery power. issue when I was under warranty He refused to help this was a manager told me I needed to ship my laptop to them to fix and a low cost of Anyway is there any other issue LCD screen not working on battery power. you could think of that could cause the lcd to not work on battery power yet be fine on ac power Also on battery power everything else works so I know it isn t everything effected Thanks in advance nbsp

You might check the power settings in windows control panel.

Months and months ago my computer started having a problem with running graphic-intensive games such as FarCry and KotOR I did everything I could and couldn t find out what was wrong My computer would shut down and a message over says detects one running, and fan ASUS AIDA fans Chassis aren't Power Probe the speakers would say I was overclocking it I kind of passed it off ASUS Probe says Chassis and Power fans aren't running, AIDA detects one fan for a bit but today I installed ASUS Probe from the CD that came with my motherboard and under Monitor Summary both Power Fan and Chassis Fan were unchecked for monitoring When I checked them they have the message quot Fan below threshold quot When I checked the Fan Monitor apparently only the CPU fan is working http img imageshack us my php image asus ln jpg Now I have a fairly new system so I m pretty sure there should be fans there I had no problem with games when I first got it last december It only started about April or May I have a Intel Pentium GHz with a ASUS P AD Deluxe Wireless Edition motherboard I have MB of RAM and a ATI Radeon X Pro graphics card nbsp

A:ASUS Probe says Chassis and Power fans aren't running, AIDA detects one fan

it is possible that your fans are not conencted with the motherboard. to acertain whether there is a cooling problem, check your cpu and gpu temps. also, this problem could be caused by a failing PSU.

Hi Guys,

My dual screen has suddenly stopped working on my laptop. Now when I hit 'detect' my laptop screen goes black and I have to force restart the machine and disconnect the second laptop. Is this likely to be a hardware fault? Or how would I diagnose the problem?

Hi new user here I have an issue with one of my monitors and or my graphics cards and or Windows just to complicate things I have been happily using Windows with a dual screen set up for months and both my screens have been plugged into my external graphics card Display monitor working setup screen dual on not At the beginning the graphics drivers Nvidia Geforce conflicted with the stupid Windows auto updates resulting in Display screen not working on dual monitor setup double black screen but I was able to sort it out by plugging one of the monitors into the internal graphics display and have had a stable system for over a month Yesterday Windows insisted on downloading an update and crashed the whole thing No problem I plugged the main monitor into the internal uninstalled what the Windows graphic drivers and refreshed the system as I had done previously The second monitor came on and I restarted the computer to allow me to replug the main monitor into the external graphics card No luck The main monitor remained off even though the second monitor was clearly working on the external graphics card The device manager said all the graphics cards were working with no conflicts I have tried every combination possible now I have deleted and reinstalled the graphics drivers several times I have tried the main display in both the external graphics card ports but it will only display in terrible low resolution on the internal graphics card The second monitor works in every slot in good resolution the main monitor will only work on the internal graphics card I am tearing my hair out here It is clearly not any of the slots and or connections that are at fault - every graphics card port works on at least one of the monitors and both the monitors clearly work However I am no longer able to run both the monitors on the external graphics card meaning one always the big main monitor is stuck in low resolution hell Has anyone experienced similar issues and has a fix nbsp

I am running a legitimate copy of Windows 8.
After I rebooted my laptop 3 days ago, when I open a program, it would take 3-5 minutes to load or it loads right away and once I click on the program it freezes and stops responding.
I have already ran virus scans, used CCleaner, AdwCleaner, MalwareBytes StartUpLite, ran hardware diagnostics and nothing works.
I ran my computer in safemode and all my programs came up and loaded fast.
By loaded I mean to be able to visually see it(GUI).
When I open something it'll be active in task manager but take forever to show up on my desktop.

I have the Philips MMS205 which consists of 4 satellite speakers and a subwoofer. My sound card is a Soundblaster Live! X-Gamer. My satellites are properly hooked up to the subwoofer. The line IN on the subwoofer is connected to the line OUT on the computer, and the surround IN is connected to the Rear OUT on the computer. However, the problem is that only ONE of the satelites and the subwoofer are working, the other three satelites are not emitting any sounds. Please reply if you know what is wrong and/or what i can try. Thanks.

A:satellite speakers aren't working

1) Can you try the speakers on another computer? They may be bad.

2) Try the front out to the surround speakers and see if they both work.

This should pin the problem down.

Yesterday, I upgraded from Windows 7 to Windows 10. All went good, and I'm fully satisfied with Windows 10, but when I called a friend on Skype, I couldn't hear him at all. Not in my headphones. I searched on Google and saw on a lot of forums that if I unninstal that "VIA HD Audio (Win 10) it will fix my problem, but it didn't.[/B] They're still not working, even after I updated the driver back. I also installed Realtek HD Audio driver, after seeing on other forum, but it still didn't work at all. When I click on the speaker icon, go to playback devices, it's not showing headphones, but only speakers. Do you guys know what I can do ? Do you got any idea? I don't want to go back to Windows 7 just because of this.

 If this happened to me, I'd restore from my last good full system backup.  If you don't have one, I'd consider this a learning experience.  Then save any data you don't want to lose, and try System Restore.  If that doesn't help,
restore your system to factory settings, and reload your software.
 Good luck.

How's it goin,
I seem to have a problem with games that i put on my laptop (Acer Aspire 3680, 64mb graphics card). They all install correctly but when I play 'Lord of the Rings-BFME II' it loads the black screen then comes up with a blue background and all these error messages and shuts the computer down. I also have 'Worms-World Party' demo which loads black screen thens returns to desktop and error message 'worms world party has been stopped, sending error report', even tho my 'dawn of war-wa 'demo works fine. I have re-installed both games plus running them both as administrator, can't seem to figure it out, all programs work perfectly on my laptop it's just games that are a hassle. Anyone have a solution??

It's like my computer doesn't even realize that the devices and drivers are malfunctioning, also i don't know if it is related but it seems like files, apps and folders are constantly being deleted without my consent and no one else has access to my pc. i suspect foul play hidden in my system.
