    I just got a new HP Pavillion dv6119 with Media Center. No matter what
    adjustments I make to the screen saver, it will never turn on. I've got it
    set to 1 minute, yet it never turns on. Any suggestions?

    Thanks, Andre

    Thanks - these were all set properly.

    I found another article talking about how a MS wireless mouse was causing
    the problem, and sure enough I have one. I unplugged the USB receiver and
    the screen saver started working. Bummer - I like this mouse. :(

    I have a dv 8301nr had the same problem, go to start, run, type msconfig,
    click the startup tab and uncheck EabServr, its a quick access keyboard
    button, if you wonder about it, google search EabServr. My screensaver works
    fine now

    Yes.I am aware about that KB Article; but in the first post you didn't
    mention that you have a MS wireless mouse.
    I am delighted to know that you fixed the problem.Happy computing.
