Currently Being ModeratedAug 23, 2008 3:54 PM (in response to Kim Markesich)Just encountered same problem. I can not change or view screen savers. Also ran disk utilities, an I tried removing/replacing Screen Saver files from MacHD/Library/ScreenSavers and MacHD/System/Library/ScreenSavers with no change in the effect.
When I select System Preferences > Desktop & Screen Saver, IF I click to Screen Saver THEN 'funk' plays and System Preferences disappears. Once this is triggered I can no longer access Desktop & Screen Saver (...except IF you quickly select Desktop before it crashes, THEN next time you open you can access Desktop...)
When my computer goes into Screen Saver mode, first 'funk' plays then the Screen Saver crashes and then the computer runs the Screen Saver again, and the cycle repeats. Then my wife asks, "Why is your computer making irritating noises?"
How do I change my Screen Saver settings without using System Preferences (...which crashes...).iMac (lamp version), Mac OS X (10.5.4), Apple user since 1977
