Windows 7: Screen Saver won't start in build 7100 (RC)

19 May 2009   #21

Windows 7

Which brings me back to my original issue. There are no optional updates available to be via Windows Update! So I cannot choose the 'Microsoft driver update for HID Non-User Input Data Filter' update to install it!

Is there any other way to install this update outside of Windows Update? And why is it not showing as an available update to me?

Fix for screensaver

I've recently installed Win 7 and had the same problem with the screensaver not starting up. I have a wireless microsoft keyboard and mouse, but my wife who has a wired version had no problem with her screensaver starting. I've just downloaded and installed the latest drivers for my keyboard and mouse off the microsoft site and my screensaver starts up perfectly now.
I got my update here: Download Software

Hope this helps
