screen saver not coming on

I searched for this and I read through the first 11 pages and didn't find exactly what I was looking for.

This is the computer I have: Toshiba Satellite A205-S4639

The screen saver is set to come on after 20 minutes. At that time it just goes to a black screen. One time the screen saver did actually come on for a few seconds but then went back to the black screen. I read in one of the threads that the NVIDIA may have something to do with it.
