Unhappy Problem with screen sommand under normal user


I'm new here and also I'm new to linux

I'm trying to use screen command for my VPS CentOS 6.2 (screen ver.4.0.3-16.el6.i686)but as a normal user the screen just close.

1-logged in as my normal user using ssh client
2-typed in “screen” and hit enter
3-console went blank for 5 seconds
4-previous content returned, along with “[screen is terminating]” and my normal command prompt.

Screen didn’t work for any regular users, however it did work for root.
Please remember I'm a linux total newbie
