 Screen Saver Freezing

I am using Windows XP on a Pentium 3 computer with 256MB
of RAM. My Microsoft screen savers were working fine until
a couple days ago when they began to freeze up. I checked
my video card and it seems to be working fine. I ran a
couple video clips. I reinstalled Windows with no luck.
Any suggestions?

 Screen Saver Freezing

Hi Barbara,

Does this only happen with 3D screensavers or all of them?  If the former,
XP SP1 has included a fix for this issue.

Other than that, I would suggest going to Start/Run and type in:
Dxdiag/Display and test DirectDraw.

If this is not the case, go into the setup settings for your card and set
antialiasing to No and reboot.

Good luck!

All the Best,
