Go to Control Panel>Power Options and report back what the display and sleep timeout is. Reset to Default.

next rightclick on desktop, choose Personalize, turn off Screen Saver, set an Aero theme, set up your Desktop slideshow.

Check the logs for the time the problem occurs and use the other system resources to track down the problem by following these troubleshooting steps
