Strange thing is, I know the screen saver used to work.... not sure when exactly it stopped though :/

Thinking I just need to maybe refresh my WI score... this is what happens when I try.. the plot thickens...

I've tried re-installing my Nvidia drivers.. no luck.

Any ideas... tried sfc scan too. no luck.

Edit: Just for the record, everything else is running great on the rig. Ultra BF3 settings 40+fps.

Screen savers are getting pretty resource intensive these days. Time to upgrade maybe?

That screensaver runs for me on a GeForce 4 Ti 4200 under Windows XP on very old drivers (granted it does so with a Black background and not the desktop, but I think that's either a function of it's 64MB VRAM amount or it's lack of DirectX 9 maybe; my GeForce 6800 GS AGP with 256MB VRAM would run it fine). Something is amiss, and the fact that it won't generate a WEI score might be related. I've no idea what it could be though. Do you have a second drive you could temporarily quickly install Windows on to see if it happens there?
