All screensavers for all users?
If you have not tried more than one user/screensaver - do so or specify the
screensaver that does not work.
Change the options (timeout, lock/return to welcome screen, etc) as well.

none of the windows screen savers work on any of the settings on any of the
times or users and none of the downloaded screen savers either

Posting from another user by the name of David:
�I figured out what the problem is. It's the Microsoft Wireless Mouse. If I switch
the mouse to one with a tail the screensaver works.�
then David posted again
�I got a fix. I changed to connection to the computer using the USB to PS2 adapter
that came with the mouse. Now I get the screensaver. I would be interested to find
out why this works.�
