this has been driving me crazy for the past few days, I have a fresh and clean install of Windows 8 Pro 64Bit (Activated - Not upgrade).
I have about 50 JPEG wallpapers that I want to set as a slideshow - 10 mintes each on shuffle. my monitor is a big 27" hi res (2560x1440 resolution) so keep in mind that some images are big in size, my largest image is about 2MB, the whole collection is 46MB
The problem is, when I set all my images as slideshow and save, windows will maybe play only about 2 images, then it gets stuck on the third and never change at all, not even after a restart! Sometimes it would work but flip through images at a faster rate, about 1 minute each image for like 2-3 images then gets stuck again! - every-time it gets stuck at a random image, not the same image.
I dont have any problems setting one image only as a wallpaper, I only have problems with the slideshow!
Things I have tried:
- make sure slideshow in power settings is set to available and not paused
- deleted transcodedwallpaper and slideshow.ini files, they regenerate back automatically
- I even re-installed windows thinking maybe my install is corrupted, same behavior
- I do not RDP or use VNC
Programs I have installed (which by no means should interfere with the wallpaper process):
- Nvidia Control Panel
- Adobe Creative Cloud
- Steam (with some games)
That is literally all I have installed! I really hope somebody can help me out
Edit: Forgot to mention, this is a Desktop not a Laptop, It stays on the whole time. No screensaver.
