I'm using DivX Plus Player on Windows Vista. I already ticked "Disable all screen savers while playing videos" box on DivX Player preferences and "(None)" my screen saver setting on Personalize but the screen still turn black while i'm watching movies.
What should i do?

Thnks...

I don't think that is a screensaver issue as much as it sounds more like your power saving options are turned on.
Go HERE and read the page on how to change power saving options about half way down the page. .

Power and not Screensaver?

Yes, the link did help me solve the problem. I change the "Choose when to turn off the display" setting and my problem solved.
Thanks again...
