My printer crashed my computer. Got my computer up and running, but something messed up SETI. Had to get it started all over again.
But when I go into tasks & click on running, then click on show graphics, the graphics don't show.
Sure would like to get help with this one.
Never had anything like this go on before.
Thanks.

I am also having an issue with the graphics not showing while BOINC is running. I have tried installing an earlier version of the software as well as upgrading to the newest version that was just posted on 09/17/2011. I am still not able to get graphics to display

My screen saver got messed up when I upgraded to BOINC 6.13. I switched back to the 6.12. version when I saw that you had taken if off line but the screen saver still doesn't work right. When it starts, I get a flash of the graphic but the screen goes to black a few seconds later and all i see is my clock. I have trashed the whole boinc folder and re installed boinc and my 3 projects but no change. Is there a hidden file some where that is messing things up? The graphics work fine when I look at them in the boinc manager.

Check the version of the screen saver module.

It should be in HD/Library/Screen Savers/

I'm having this problem too. When I click the show graphics nothing happens. When the screensaver starts it just hangs on loading graphics. Does anyone know how to fix this?
