For some reason, my screen savers don't activate after pc has been on standby for a few minutes. It dosn't matter which one of the list I choose. Non of them activate.Not even the ones that came with windows xp! Have had this problem for last couple of weeks. Can anyone advise me on this. Thanks in advance

Does the sceensaver work when you preview it on Display Properties? Or have you perhaps inadvertantly increased the number of minutes wait before it starts?

It's often related to wireless mice or keyboards. Follow the update set out here. click here

Why do you use one? Do you site and watch it? Turn your monitor of when it's not being used save electric

Hi, Thanks for solving screensaver prob. Yes I installed a wireless keyboard&mouse a week or so ago. I done what you suggested and downloaded the recommended update&hey presto my screensaver came back on, thanks again, CJJeff

You could fit your old Monitor to make adjustments befor plugging the LCD in
