Default wondering if someone can help me?

i got windows XP , a newer Dell model. I have some screensavers like aquarium and Jungle, and such. And i cannot get them to work no more, they used to work fine. But now when i go to select them they just show a black screen, and it says Cannot find any compatible direct 3d devices. But they worked before, and i made no changes to the computer.....anyone know what the problem is?
