    Re: Facing Problem while enabling Screen saver option in Windows 7

    Hello,

    1. Open the Start Menu, type regedit in the search box and press Enter.

    2. In regedit, navigate to the location i.e
    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop.

    3. In the right pane of the Desktop key in regedit, right click on the SCRNSAVE.EXE string value and click on Modify.If the SCRNSAVE.EXE string value is not there, then right click on a empty space in the right pane of the Desktop key, click on New and String Value, type SCRNSAVE.EXE, and press Enter.


    4. Type in the full path of the .scr screen saver file that you want as your screen saver, and click on OK. Be sure that the name of the .scr screen saver file does not contain any spaces in it. If it does, rename the .scr screen saver file
    .

    5. In the right pane of the Desktop key in regedit, right click on the ScreenSaveTimeOut string value and click on Modify. If the ScreenSaveTimeOut string value is not there, then right click on a empty space in the right pane of the Desktop key, click on New and String Value, type ScreenSaveTimeOut, and press Enter.

    6.
    Type in how many seconds (ex: 300 for 5 minutes) in minute increments (60 seconds = 1 minute) that you want for how much idle time must elapse before the screen saver is launched, and click on OK.

    7. Close regedit and logoff and login again. now apply the screensaver as normal.

    Hi,

    In order to activate screen saver in the system, take these steps:

    Start > Control Panel > in search box type Screen Saver > Turn screen saver on or off > here you will get options to activate desired screen savers from a list, select > Ok.

    In case you dont get activation right edit the registry to solve the issue, which can be hazardous as any mistake will render the system worthless.

    Thanks.
