Screen blacks out every 60 sec or so

Hi. My screen blacks out every 60 seconds or so if I am watching either a CD or the market via on-line broker. So, I have to jiggle my mouse so that I may view again. Under "Power Options' (dell computer) "Turn of Display" = Never, same with "Sleep". Please Help. Thanks!

Check your Screen Saver settings.

Type screensaver in the Start Search box and click "Change screen saver"
