screensaver stops working

    Date: 04/03/05 (Computer Help)    Keywords: software, virus, antivirus, spyware

    I'm using a Dell Inspiron 4000 laptop that's running Windows XP Home w/SP2, and I've been having issues with my screensaver. I didn't change my screensaver settings or anything recently, and about three days ago my screensaver stopped working. I had my screensaver set to turn on after 10 minutes, and when I noticed that it wasn't starting automatically, I changed the settings so the screensaver would turn on after one minute. I tried changing my screensaver from 3D pipes to Starfield. It still didn't work. I also have my settings such that my screen is to turn off after one hour, and it doesn't do that either. I've tried using XP's Help and Support with no luck, and I've tried Googling to no avail. I've done spyware scans and I've run my antivirus software as well, and I found nothing wrong. I just don't understand how my screensaver could just stop working when I've done nothing to change the settings. If anyone has any advice or solutions, they would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
