windows 7 screensaver does not work

Hi there,

Neither my windows 7 screensaver nor any other internet screensaver will work on my computer. I don't want to set my screen to shut off and see a flat black screen. How do I make those screensavers work in windows 7 ?

Thanks

Has the screensaver ever worked for you whilst using Windows 7 as your operating system?

He means downloaded screensavers, as he had problems with them changing the google chrome home page.

This worked for me. I manually put the computer to sleep using the "sleep" option to the right of shut down, off the Start button. After I manually put the computer to sleep, the screensaver started working normally as well as the monitor off and automatic sleep and hibernation functions of the computer.
