I am surprised an old Packard Bell would even run WinMe but then computers seem to age like dogs. 1 year = 7. :D At any rate, do you have a recovery CD that came with it? If I remember, one of the problems with P/B was that they never gave you any disks or CD's. You had to make your own backups. You might also try this: Go to the Control Panel/ADD-REMOVE icon and then to the Windows Setup tab. Locate the screensavers in the Accessories (I think) and uncheck the box. Shut down and then go back and check the box back. A word here, if you don't have the .cab files on your hardrive the computer will bark for your Win95 CD. This might cure your screensaver problem and maybe the power management problem to also!
