Can anyone suggest a resolution to my problem?
When my BOINC screensaver starts, the graphics aren't displayed. All I get is a black screen. I'm using Windows Vista Home Basic SP1.

I have also had this problem with the mini apps. I have been hesitant to report it since I am using the test versions of the client.

I just started having this same problem that started Thursday. My screen saver comes on but no graphics--only black.

I thought a screensaver used the appication graphics? If this is the case then the mini tasks won't have much of a screensaver. If its a 5.96 then theres something wrong.

There's a bug in the current minirosetta screensaver that should hopefully be fixed in the next update. It is currently being tested on ralph.

Since I run all my servers/pcs headless and run the software as a service that does not interact with the desktop, I forget the screen savers are there! lol. I know how to make them work, but why bother bogging down the PC if it is crunching! :-)
