If you are like the thousands who like to watch the screen saver and can't seem to get it working don't fret. I have come up with a few good ideas that you can use to get it to work.
Now this may sound silly but are you running the most current BOINC? If you are not, download the most current one, uninstall BOINC, (don't worry the settings won't be deleted) RESTART your computer and install BOINC.
Go to Windows Update, and see if there are any updates. Sometimes you might have to go to the Video Card Manufactures website to get the update for your video card.
In C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\BOINC
(if you have used the default install) look for a file called stderrgfx.txt. Open it and see if there is any error messages in it. If you don't understand anything that is in there, post it on the help forum and we'll try to help you out.
Remember if you are getting frustrated, just walk away from the computer for a bit.
If you still need help, don't drop the project out of frustration. Post your concerns up here on the forum
Hope this little writeup has helped you out. ;)
