It is outdated operating system problem. So kindly update your operating system.

thank you for the reply. windows 10 automatically updates when they become available.. but did you mean that I need to do some other kind of update ? thanks for helping me.

Have a look at device manager and expand 'Human Interface Devices'. If you find HID-Compliant white board in the list right click it and disable. Select 'yes' in the popup. Do not disable anything else and if 'white board' is not showing then close Device Manager as this won't be your answer.

If showing and you can disable then reboot afterwards and try your screen saver.

no, I do not have 'whiteboard'. unless it is hidden under another name. the strange thing is that the screen saver was working until a few days ago. I know using a screen saver is old school but I like to use mine because it has my photos. Thanks again.

When something that previously worked suddenly stops working it's possible that the problem is either an operating system update, or something that you have changed in the settings without realising the implications.

If you haven't made any settings changes, I suggest that you use system restore to choose a restore point that was made when you know the screensaver was running. That will reset your system registry, and it's worth a try.
