I am running Windows XP and my screensaver won't kick in. I am just using standard windows "My Pictures Slideshow" screen saver. I have tried several others as well with the same result. All of them will work if I click the "Preview" button, but if I set the timeout to 1 minute and come back 1 hour later it still has not kicked in.

Everything used to work fine, but about 3 weeks ago, something must have gotten corrupted. I have gone through the step of a "repair" booting with the windows reinstellation CD provided with my computer, but that didn't seem to have any effect at all. I have also checked the basic screensaver parameters in my registry and they appear to be correct.

Help.
