Well when you go on properties does it say screen saver? You might have locked it.

Have a look in here
KEY: HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\System
DWORD: NoDispScrSavPage =
Should be a value of 0 (zero)

george jones, If you mean that the Screensaver tab is missing from the Display properties and are not comfortable editing the registry go to the link below and scroll down to line 285 (right column) and click on "Restore All Display Tabs" to download a reg file fix. Save the REG File to your hard disk. Double click it and answer yes to the import prompt. It should correct your problem.
