Two questions spring to mind:

What is the screen saver SUPPOSED to be?

Why on earth are you PAYING for a screen saver?

the screen saver is the Aquarium ver3, did try a free one but got fed up with the nag box...

How old are your graphics drivers only they may require updating.

Hi, my one is almost the same, being PC Aquarium deluxe 3.0, any way, the laptop is a rock quaddra Ti, only 18 months old, just tried it on this old Dell laptop which is about 4 years old and it runs a treat....

installed it and the screen is just a mass of coloured lines / says screen res needs changing in the program to me probably set to high for your graphics card maybe
