    My screensaver freezes and i have to push the button on the front of the computer to turn it off. After the computer reboots the desktop items are rearranged mostly to the left. Any suggestions on these two things?

    LOL

    You could turn off your screensaver... which one is it specifically? Does it freeze on others too?

    Some screensavers i understand, that come with Windows can cause this problem, such as flower box and others. So i avoid those. However it is recommended by experts that screensavers be used. Cheers

    Screen savers were originally used to reduce burn-in on older monitors. An alternative to screen savers is going into power options and changing it so your screen turns off after a set number of minutes.
