Maybe if you'd actually tell us something more descriptive than, "My screensaver doesn't work."

Like:
Which screensaver is it?
Did it ever work?
How are the parameters set?
What do you mean by doesn't work? Does it crash? Never comes up? Error message? Something else?

We might be able to help you, but give us a hint.

Go into the screensaver config and tell us how the parameters are set.

Some of those don't work with some hardware. What does the preview do? If nothing, then that's your problem. If that is your problem, try a simpler screen saver (one without 3D) and see if that works for you.

It works. The preview, that is.

Show us the screensaver tab on the Display Properties menu. It's got the picture of the monitor and a small globe with the word "energy" on top.

Should that make the screensaver come up? EDIT: Doesn't work.
