2. Under what operating systems will Beam Screensaver (v2.00) run?

Beam Screensaver should run fine under the following versions of Microsoft OSs:

   - Windows Vista
   - Windows 2000/XP

3. What 3D graphics card is best for Beam Screensaver?

Beam Screensaver (v2.xx) should run (theoretically) on any 3D accelerator card with at least 32 Mb of video memory and drivers with support for OpenGL 2.0 and GLSL (OpenGL Shading Language).

4. Installing Beam Screensaver...

• Use Explorer or any other file management programm to create a new (temporary) folder on your hard drive. Since it is temporary, the name is of no importance.
Move (or Copy) the zipped distribution file into the new folder.
Unzip the distribution file.
• From the Task Bar select: Start, Run, Browse...
• Locate your new folder. Click on "setup.exe" and hit the "Open" button.
• Hit "OK" and follow the prompts.
• Run Beam Screensaver using the Task Bar -> Start -> Programs -> Beam Screensaver...

Note: Once installation is complete, you can use Explorer to delete the temporary folder.

5. Uninstalling Beam Screensaver / Theme...

Go to ControlPanel -> Add/Remove Programs and choose Beam Screensaver or use uninstall icon in Beam Screensaver folder.


1. Beam Screensaver runs like a slideshow. Can you help?

If you find that the screensaver performance is poor then make sure you have the latest drivers for 3D video card installed on your computer.

If you are not getting good performance under Windows 2000/XP/VISTA but have a decent computer system then it is likely that you are using video card drivers that come with Windows OS which do not provide support for accelerated OpenGL.

If you know the manufacturer of your 3D graphics card, you can generally go to their website to download the appropriate OpenGL drivers.
