Sreen saver not comming on

By byteside ·
I have two computers where the screen saver will not automaticly execute. Preview works. windows xp home and pro, service pack two. Screen saver set to come on in 1 - 10 minutes and will not auto execute. No virus, no spyware. Other computers with identical hardware and software work fine. Using microsoft 3D text screen saver on all computers. Any help would be great. Thanks.

Try another Screen Saver as there are known problems with the 3D Text one and they have been around since the Win 95 Days.

I ran into the same issue with a Dell Latitude D630. Removing PowerDVD resolved the problem.
