    I just successfully installed Leopard 10.5 on my Quicksilver 933mhz, but
    now I have a new issue, when I try to open/change to a new screen saver I get this message: " Cant load screen saver. Screen saver ."Mac" did not load properly. Please select another. Error-cant load bundle. I tried to change to other screen savers but get the same message on all of them. The only one I get is "Flurry". I hate Flurry!
    What should I do..??

    Did you run disk utility?

    I would also delete the screensaver plist file.

    Are you using any third party screen savers?


    Cheers

    I think I solved this screen saver this caper. I think it was the video card. My existing card had 16mb of memory. I took it to work where there is a Mac running Leopard, so i check the video memory on it and it has 32mb and the screen savers work just fine. So i replace that video card with my 16mb card reboot and i cant get the screen savers just like at home. So i try another video card that also has 16 mb of memory and still cant get the screen savers. So i buy a 32 mb video card take it home put it into my Mac and bada bing bada boom now i have screen savers and my Mac and its screen savers appear to be working fine. So is this possible????!!

    Anyway to make a long story short if anyone ever encounters this same issues this solution worked for me!!!!!!!!!!!!!
