Did you upgrade/add/remove/install/uninstall anything recently? Also, as someone already suggested, upgrade to the latest nvidia drivers, as new drivers (are designed) to improve problems

if you know the date that it used to work. try using the system restor to an earlier time feature. it is in the accessories, system tools, system restore. then select the date you want to go back to. Be aware you will lose anything that you have installed from that date to now. so if there is anything important. back it up or copy it to a cd or usb drive.

good luck

thanks I'll try it, but I will need to back a lot of things up, it has been a few months since I used the screen saver option as I had the PC go to sleep before the SS could come up.

thanks again

I found your thread searching for the same answer. Here's your problem: you're using Vista, and your Windows Experience index got reset. Refresh the index, and you'll get your feature back.:)

Right click 'Computer'. Select 'Properties'. You'll see your Experience Index listed there. Click to rate.
