My screensaver doesn't start. I currently have the screensaver set to start after 10 minutes(default) and the power settings say to turn off display after 20. If I leave my computer neither happens. I can't figure out why. I know this is probably something simple, but I just can't see it. Can anyone help?
The following applications are known to interfere with the screensaver.
3. Power DVD
4. PCM service.
5. Dell Media software.
Also some cordless keyboards or cordless mouse.
The former you can stop running as background programs, through the Msconfig.
