Screen Saver does not work

I recently did a fresh instaill of my OS

And i want to use the "Ribbions" screen saver that windows came with, however it does not work.

My screen will show it for 2 seconds and then it will go black

On my old instaill it worked fine

Did you have Win 7 beforehand?
Check your graphics card for latest video driver.
Does this only happen with Ribbons. Do other screensavers work properly?
