More info required. Operating system, standard or downloaded saver, what have you done so far?

I am running windows xp, have tried everything so far with no luck, have now took to download webshots and try their screensaver but still it does not want to play ball for me.

Sorry to ask this do you mean a screensaver or wallpaper?

A screensaver

Have you followed the route through control panel and set the screensaver that way? Is it password protected?

In control panel what is the route to take ?

Control Panel>Appearances and themes>Choose a screen saver. It should come up as the SS tab, if not choose the SS tab and select from there. Note the delay time you select but you can preview it,. Do not forget to click"Apply"

I have tried all the recomendations that have been suggested with no effect. Just been sitting here thinking, could it be that i am using an LG Monitor with a built in TV tuner.

Control Panel > Display > Screen Saver >.

If this is a Screen Saver that you have downloaded, where have you filed it?
