Could someone tell me, We had our screen saver set to none, power schemes to Home/office Desk,,, Turn off Monitor: after 15 min, Turn off Hard disk Never,,,, System standby Never,,, and this has worked for a very long time. We also have our laptop set this way and do not have a problem with it working on laptop or pc.

We took out Pc in to have hard drive mirrored, to 80 hard drive, and SP3 installed. When we got it back this setting will not work, it will cause, lock up, blue screen. But it does not matter if we are on the computer working or away for a long period of time. As soon as we take it off and do the never never never, and set up a screen saver we do not get a blue screen or the lock up.

Our laptop is right next to me and it is set up that way and does not have a problem and like I said above before we had the pc worked on it was not a problem.

Thanks for any ideas you may have

Windows XP Home Edition 2002 - SP3 - CPU 2.40 - 512 MB of Ram - 80 hard drive - 17in monitor - IE7 - highspeed - AVG 8

Just a hunch. Reinstall/update your video driver
