Since then.....Still have Linux Mint 8 and Windows 7 on it and up the ram to 2 gigs. Since I took the ram module out of the bad slot, I haven't had any more trouble.Try turning off quiet boot in the bios, then every time you start it up She called Dell and they told her to reformat her HD and that would solve the problem I think it might be hardware related, maybe a loose cable going from the eblackwell, Jun 16, 2009 #1 greasemonkey Private First Class Is there a background process which is preventing the screensaver from running?
