    Screensaver won't start


    For whatever reason my screensaver stopped working recently.

    I have it set to display photos but when the time I've set it to (30 mins) runs out nothing happens.

    I did some Google searching and quite a number of people with similar issues seemed to get different kind of error messages such as 'Screensaver x could not be started' or things like that. In my case nothing happens, the screensaver doens't start and I don't get any error messages nor any other kind of indications what's wrong.

    I've tried adjusting the time, checking and un-checking the option to show the lock screen, picking a different screen saver but all to no avail...problem persists.

    I've also tried running dism /online /cleanup-image /restorehealth and sfc /scannow but they both finished successfully with no issues found. I've also searched for new Windows updates but it says I'm already up to date.

    I'm on Microsoft Windows [Version 10.0.17134.81]

    Any tips how to get my screensaver working again highly appreciated!

    :)

    N97 Bluetooth disappeared, won´t start again

    Today without any reason the Bluetooth disappeared, and it won´t start anymore from the connections menu. Any clue where to start looking. Software V20, and no new update available.
