Windows 7: Desktop Frozen

15 Jun 2009   #1

Windows 7 x64
Desktop Frozen

I have the screen saver set to come on in ten minutes and the dual monitors and hard drive set to go off after twenty minutes. This problem only happens after twenty minutes when the monitors and possibly the hard drive go off. The problem: When I move the mouse to wakeup the monitor the desktop appears but everything is frozen, except the mouse (usually). After 30 seconds to several minutes everything returns to normal. The graphics driver was loaded during an update, but it is ATI 8.612, which is v9.5. CCC is not included in the download, just the driver. Should I go back the original driver that loaded when I installed the OS. My monitor resolutions are 2560x1600 and 1600x1200.
I installed all the programs I had with Vista and they are working. The only change I had to make to most of them was 'Disable display scaling on high DPI settings' on the 'Compatibilty' tab, since some of them were a little fuzzy.

Any ideas would be appreciated, Thanks.
