    I agree.
    What I find troubling is having to support Vista and there is nothing
    available that says "This is what you have with this version and this is what
    you have with that version". I mean, what if I got a service call from a
    customer that said "I don't have this ability" and I show up and sit there
    like a monkey for a couple hours trying to figure it out? I look on the web
    and I find nothing; I search microsoft and find nothing; then I tel the
    customer that it must be a Vista version issue and slap them a 200.00 bill
    for doing nothing.

    Microsoft had their heads in their A$$ when they made Vista and the people
    in charge should go in the field servicing it for a while to get a real idea
    of how troubling it is to have 4 different versions.

    I am an IT guy and I have had it with Vista. I am frustrated every single
    day with this crap.

    Hi there,

    I had the same problem as described.

    In the screensaver settings screen it said ' youre video card canno
    play themes' (or sth like that)

    After lots of searching I changed the nvidia 3d settings to (I have th
    dutch version so I have to translate) 'use advanced 3d displa
    settings'.

    After doing this I can now choose themes in the screensaver setting
    screen

    i forgot to add that you can change the 3d settings on the nvidia
    configuration screen (right click on desktop and it should show the
    nvidia configuration screen item).

    Hi, I'm sorry for the thread necromancy but I'm having the same problem
    of no themes available. The problem is that this wasn't previously the
    case. For the past 2 years I had been using a folder full of videos as
    my screensaver without problem until I got the black screen of death and
    reinstalled windows. It's Vista Ultimate 64, and my video drivers are up
    to date. I don't seem to be able to get my "gaming graphics" rating
    above 2.4 .

    Is there any registry hack for this or any other solutions to the
    missing themes?

    Has anyone else had the same problem as me where they could previously
    access this feature and now cannot?
