Screen Saver will not come on

Brand new HP and the screen saver will not come on, I have gone to CP and set it  up. Any ideas?

Please identify your notebook/pc .

Look at the base/rear/side of the notebook/pc at the barcoded sticker.

 

Post item number 2 as seen on the following example of an HP notebook's barcoded sticker. The barcode on your HP product may be slightly different in appearance, but will still have the important information needed for us to help you.  

 

###Do not post the serial number as it is personal information.###

Post the installed operating system version ( and whether it is 32 or 64-bit )
Is the CPU an AMD or Intel product? 


Not posting all of the information as requested will delay our responses and slow troubleshooting of the issue that led you to author a thread.

 

 

Best regards,

In Windows 7 (Vista is similar) just right click anywhere on the display and select Personalilze.

Select screen saver. If you see is as the following image you now know why there is no screen saver active. In the Screen saver dropdown as in the following image you can select what you want as a screen saver.

Re: Screen Saver will not come on

I did all of the above. thanks  thou.

 I contacted HP and they said it was the wireless Microsoft mouse. I have been using this mouse with another HP and NEVER had a problem. BUT, I changed the mouse to a Logitech wireless mouse and the screensaver works.
