    Windows Vista Screen Saver Problem

    In Windows Vista, I selected my screen saver. Clicked on "apply" than clicked
    on "ok.'
    Waited 3 minutes (my time setting), and no screen saver.

    Request your help in solving another Vista issue?

    Hello,

    Do you have a wireless mouse or keyboard?

    If yes, then see if these links to MS can help.

    The screen saver does not start after you install a wireless pointing device

    and

    The screen saver does not work when you use a Microsoft wireless pointing device on a Windows Vista-based computer

    Hope this helps,
    Shawn

    After downloading and installing the MS HID Non-User Data Filter, the problem was resolved. Thank you Shawn, I appreciate your willingness to help!
