Hi, thanks for the suggestion, I've got no screen saver nor anything, any more ideas? I've been in trouble again 3 times this morning, we just can't find out what the problem is! lol Christine. ----- Original Message ----- From: Jackie Cairns To: access-uk@xxxxxxxxxxxxx Sent: Wednesday, January 02, 2008 11:26 AM Subject: [access-uk] Re: Problem with Jaws. Hi Christine As a first try, go to Control Panel and check the display settings your laptop is set to. I keep things like wallpaper, screensaver and other stuff basic. It would drive me mad too, so I sympathise with your frustration,. But the version of JFW you mention should support XP Home. Good luck.

Hi all, I swaped laptops with my son a month ago, he reformatted it first, installed the windows xp home then jaws 6.0 The spec on here is better than the other but its the same version of jaws. When I turn on the computer I hear the usual musical sounds, press the windows key and get, start, start menue, I arrow down to email and off I go. all is well until I decide to do something else, follow a link to a website, when I come off the website and decide to go to my music I press the windows key, it only says Start and won't read anything else to me, I can't find my way back to outlook express nor explorer, I can't do anything because my jaws won't read anything until I shut down jaws, press the windows key and J to restart jaws, its ok again then until I change programms which is making me very reluctant to do anything much on my computer now, any ideas please what I can do to rectify this problem? Its driving me Crazy, as its not always easy to select to close jaws and often the whole computer shuts-down on me! Thanks for any help. Happy new year to everyone, from Christine W.
