Screensaver Unavaiable

My son & i have just built a new system for a friend - top spec with XP media Centre. Everything is fine except we cannot get a screensaver to run. We can select it and preview it without a problem but if you click on Apply and then OK nothing happens. Ant ideas anyone??

I don't know about XP Media Centre, but most screensaver not running problems seem to stem from the mouse.
click here for an XP resolve and see if it helps.
If you have a USB mouse try unplugging it just to see.

If you go to the microsoft knowledge base there are several causes.

Just a thought, are you logged on as a administrator or other user? If other user, the administrator may have disables screen saver for others.

Outstanding service !! Many Thanks

Will not see friend for few days but will let you know how we get on
