Windows 7 Ultimate x64

that to me sounds like a display driver problem - lot of the screensavers alter the resolution and thus present challenges to it. how about try using a different version of the driver?

Windows 7 64 bit

This subject is the reason I registerred. I fixed mine by flashing the BIOS to a more up to date version.
I have the Asus M2N SLI Deluxe mobo and was at bios v. 1201, flashed to 1701 and automagically screen saver and power options work on Windows 7 x64 Enterprise.
