Help! My screen turns black when the screen saver wakes up?

This forum has proven to be invaluable to me so I naturally thought of it when this problem appeared.

I've recently installed some new software...and then started noticing that when my screen saver "wakes" up...the monitor goes black. Everything seems to still be running...but no graphics. I can click the mouse and open applications (in the dark)..but just can't see anything.

To get the screen back, I've been able to hit the "sleep" button on my keyboard, wait for the computer to hibernate...then hit any key to successfully wake it up.

If I turn the screen saver off...then no problems since it only seems to happen when the screen saver wakes up.

my os is win XP pro.

Whattaya think?

I would suggest leaving the screen saver off. Since your computer works fine with the screen saver off, it's just not worth the time and aggravation of trying to figure out what the problem is. Set a nice picture as your desktop background and don't bother with the screen savers.
