Re: ScreenSaver doesn't come on

Hey

I was wondering if anyone had solved this. I am using Mint 19.1 Tessa on my laptop and having this issue. Instead of the screensaver activating its just a black screen. Even when I use Ctrl+Alt and L to lock.

Cheers

Re: Asus Vivobook e200ha Audio Issue

I will reinstall mint and give this a try then, don't want to get rid of the machine so if I can get it working that would be great. Will let you know how I get on.
