Screen Saver

Guest

I am using My Pictures as a screen saver. For some reason after some
undetermined time they are no longer displayed in color but black and white.
Has anyone else experienced this and know how to correct it? I would like to
see my pictures in color. I have a new Dell XPS 410 with an NVIDIA GeForce
7300 LE video card and a ViewSonic VX2235sm monitor running Vista Home
Premium.

I think the RANDOM setting does that. Haven't played around with it enough
yet

I'm a little skeptical of the My Pictures screensaver. On my Dell Inspiron 9400,
the display doesn't turn off when it's my screensaver (when the display off time
is longer than the SS on time, obviously), but any other is fine.

Hi, I had the same problem. I changed Random to another setting and the
colour returned to the pictures! As mentioned, I too think that Random has
this effect.

I will try that. Thanks.

I had another post which confirmed your suspicion. Thanks.


I'm a little late to the thread, but don't forget, one of the options is a
"Black and White" effect.

So I'd guess what's happening is that while using random, it's simply
choosing the Black and White effect and that's when you're seeing no color .
.. . not a bug or glitch, but the effect doing exactly what it's supposed to
do.

Mic,

You are absolutely correct. I had not even looked at the drop down list
below "random". I just thought "random" would be good and let it go at that.
I didn't know that there was a "black & white" effect option. Thanks for
finally enlightening me on this.

No problem Ron, just a simple case of forgetting to RTFM. :-D

It happens to all of us from time to time. Just don't let it happen again.

If the Photos screen saver is set to random themes some of the pictures will be
displayed in black and white.

Click Settings and view the options for themes.

I just cleaned out a spyshredder from my computer. Since this was attacking
my computer I have had a black screen for my screen saver and have not been
able to download a new screensaver?

I also had some unfortunate experience with this beast. Scummy crooks prowl
the Internet. I used Spybot S&D to clean it out from the registry. They set
up bogus websites to letch into your machine. My secretary wanted to check
something about her little dog's kidney problems and clicked on that trap
unsuspected. This ugly monster showed up.
