Exclamation 3D Windows XP Screensaver STARTS/STOPS

My OS is Windows XP Home, SP2, Processor: AMD Athlon(tm) XP 1800+, MMX, 3DNow, ~1.5GHz, 2048MB RAM, Monitor: DCLCD 17” Plug and Play Monitor - Max Res: 1600,1200, Display Memory: 256.0 MB, ATI RADEON 9600 Series AGP, DirectX 9.0c.

The problem I'm having is that I've downloaded the above 3D Windows XP Screensaver from www.microsoft.com - Microsoft Download Center and installed it correctly. However, when I select it as the current screensaver and attempt to preview it, it appears briefly (3 or 4 seconds) and then abruptly cuts off as if the keyboard or mouse was touched. So I clicked on "APPLY and OK" anyway to use it as the current screensaver with a 5 minute delay, (there are no property settings for this particular screensaver). Now, whenever the screensaver activates after the 5 minute delay, it does the same thing. What is the problem? I’ve had absolutely no problems with any other screensaver other than this one.
