    ok, i can't the screen saver enabled on this pc i'm on @ atm. i've tried this:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
    if there is a DWORD value such as "NoDispScrSavPage" with a data value of 1 this will disable your screensaver tab, change the value to 0 and your tab will be enabled.

    and this:
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "ScreenSaveActive"="0"

    i've had more problems and can't remember them all atm, but as ppl help out on this i'm sure i'll remember. i've also tried 1-2 more reg changes, but can't remember what i did. help is appreciated. thx!

    Code:
    Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "ScreenSaverIsSecure"="0"
    "ScreenSaveTimeOut"="600"
    "ScreenSaveActive"="1"
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "ScreenSaveActive"=dword:00000001
    "SCRNSAVE.EXE"=-
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\Control Panel\Desktop]
    "ScreenSaveActive"="1"
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy bjects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]
    "NoSaveSettings"=dword:00000000
    
    [HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Group Policy Objects\LocalUser\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\Explorer]

    Before messing with the registry, did you at least go to display settings>screen saver and see if it was enabled?
