Sorry College Girl We need a bit more information What operating system are you using ? Are you using a built in Windows screen saver ? Are you trying to use a freebie screen saver / bought screen saver ? What happens when you try to use it ??

i have windows xp home. i have webshots and that screensaver won't work but also just the normal screensavers don't work. basically i have it set but it never comes on. my guess is that i have some program that makes the computer think that it's never taking a break. even if i set the screensaver to come on after one minute it never comes on. it's annoying. any more questions? i was really vague, it's true. thanks!

You might try removing web shots and then just try a screen saver that is bundled with windows. You can always get web shots again . Same as wall paper . Use one that comes with windows to see if there is a difference. Go Start>control panel> Display > click the screensaver tab --- select a screensaver and click preview . If you can see the preview Ok set the time Reboot and see what happens .

Also go Start> Control Panel > Power Options . Make sure the timing for the monitor/ computer to go to standby / hibernation is set to a greater time than your screensaver .

i did all of your recommendations and to no avail; do you think it could be a program running that makes my comp think it's active constantly thus not causing the inactive setting to start?

Do Ctrl/Alt/Delete to bring up the task manager and see what is running . You can" end task " if needed from there .

i already tried that too... there's like 40-something things going and some i know not to stop but other stuff i don't know what they are... could i maybe run a hijack this and get advice on what i can get rid of? My comp also loads really slowly when i first turn it on and it didn't until the last month or so. it's only like 7 months old and it's a pretty fast machine but it takes forever to get started when i turn it on.

Go here http://forums.techguy.org/t110854.html this is a page of security tools by Rollin Rog Download and set up according to the tutorials on the page and download the latest updates for each program before using . --- Ad-Aware SE , Spy Bot Search and Destroy , and Spyware Blaster . Do an online virus scan with Panda Active Scan or one of the others listed . After doing this and fixing / quarantine / removing anything these programs find then download Hi Jack this to its own folder . Do a scan according to the tutourial and post it here . I am not qualified to analyze a Hi Jack This scan but after posting , please be patient and someone will come on here to read it and assist you with any problems .
