    Okay, sounds silly, but after multiple attempts to activate my screen saver on my new HP p6649c running Win7 with an ATI Radeon HD4200 graphics card, I can't activate it.

    I've rebooted multiple times. I've reset the screen saver settings multiple times, clicked on "apply" and "OK" and no dice. I've set the options to my own pictures as well as the default screen saver images. I have also checked the power management settings but they appear normal. Nothing seems to affect it so the monitor just sits with my desktop on perpetually.

    Are there some settings on the monitor itself I should modify?

    Any ideas?

    I removed your other post. Do not post multiple threads for the same problem.

    Next when you set a screensaver, are you using an account with admin priv?

    What pw management have you selected ie balanced, high performance, or a custom one?

    Thanks, couldn't find another post with this problem identified.
    No admin user is set up, just one sign in account for the whole family. PW management is set to balanced.
