I am running Windows 7 Home Premium Service Pack 1. Some screensavers work when I click the preview button, but when I click the apply button it won't work. Can somebody please help? I am getting very frustrated.

Thank you in advance,
Ronnie.

Some screensaver depend on the 3D capabilities of your graphics card. In some cases, you will encounter errors that the screensaver does not support the current graphics card installed in your system or no errors at all. In some cases, certain screensavers don't have the possibility to be configured and such when you press the config button it does nothing. Also, to see the screensaver in effect, try to set up a small timer, like 1 minute and then don't move anything on the screen.

Hi! Try to use a old screensaver, that do not require most of your graphics card. One like http://www.screensaverspc.com/Animated-Screensavers-Desktop-Effects/screensaver-dark-water.htm

That's can work!

Best regards!
