Getting error message while running 3DMark Vantage CPU test on Windows 7

Hi experts,

Recently, I have installed and ran 3Dmark vantage on my new updated system. When I did this to the CPU test the system crashed to a blue screen. These are my specs.

CPU 4004.5MHZ
QPI LINK 3603.35mhz
Multiplier 20.00
BCLK 200.20mhz

I set my system to stock clocks and ran the 3DMark Vantage CPU test again. I get a black screen and then an error message on the desktop (Win 7 64 bit RC). Please help with my Core i7 3DMark Vantage. Thanks.

Hello Sidney

I am aware of this error given by 3DMark Vantage. Also, I think I can help you get rid of it.

What you must do, is go to C:Program DataFuturemark3D Mark Vantagecache and delete the content of the folder, not the folder itself.

In case you do not see the folder Program Data when you access your C: partition, you must enable the "Show hidden files and folders" option. Go to My Computer, and then go to Organize – Folder and Search options. In the View tab, Check the box that says Show hidden files, folders and drives. And you will see the Program Data folder when accessing C partition.

Below you have a pictures attached, in order for you to solve your problem.

I hope you will find this information useful.
