I have just had Vista OS installed in my PC and I can't get 'my pictures' to fill the screen when screen saver comes on. Sometimes it shows up as black and white too. When I look at the preview it is OK.

Hope you can help

Not sure what you mean. My PC had to be taken to computer shop as there was a corrupt file. I had XP on it but it was wiped and Vista put on it. The pictures show up sometimes full screen and sometimes only part of the screen on screensaver.

That's what I'm saying, if visual elements are not being displayed correctly, then it could be something to do with your graphics card.
Does any other visual element not display correctly, like visual style, wallpaper, videos, pictures, media player visualisation?

Well, it's annoying that I'm the only person helping you, and it's annoying because I have no idea what the problem is, sorry.

I'll look into this a bit more for you, and I'll keep you posted on what I find out.

Sorry I couldn't be much help.

Not much we can do without system specs either brand name and model of pc or hardware listing. Feels like weak or inadequate power supply but I'm only guessing.

Is the screensaver a program you installed or just normal Windows screensavers?

Sounds like a power or video card issue. Try updating driver to the newest on video card by online search from mfgr website.
