    OK, first time using a message board, don't really know how this works. I've looked at a lot of other messages though and have not found a solution to my problem. My screen savers do not activate. Neither does my monitor automatically turn itself off. I can preview my screensavers just fine, but they will not turn on by itself. I have even made a shortcut to my screensaver on my desktop, but when I open it an explorer window comes up with a little page icon with a couple shapes in it appears in the upper left corner of the explorer window. All of the actual .scr files for my screensavers do not have pictures of the screensavers anymore, they are now just a white page with a little blue explorer e inside. I have been searching for a problem for a while now and have just recently discovered another problem (it may have been there before also and I did not notice) that could be related. When I open up my nvidia display properties and tell it to activate nview on start up an error message comes up about having to shut down "run dll as an app". I don't know if its related or not, but I tried downloading the latest driver from nvidia but it solved neither problem
