STD Exception Error Message in 3DMark Vantage

I am receiving error message whenever I run 3DMark Vantage. The error message says: STD: Exception, full screen state lost. That error came out upon running this BenchMark. It used to run with my Forceware driver even after installing its latest version. This only happened after I have the latest ATI GTX 260 driver installed. I think maybe this is the reason why my BenchMark suddenly crashed. Or anybody have an idea on this? I used to work smoothly with everything until today when this error popped out.

You will need to check if by any chance you have a floating language bar on your desktop, because if it there then it is the one a responsible for the problem that you are experiencing and therefore you will need to remove it.

In case the problem is not with the language bar, you will need to check of you have a 'log me in' process running, because it may also be the one causing the error to occur. To fix the problem, you will need to close the process and end the process from the task manager. Thereafter you will need to check if the benchmark has started.

This problem with 3DMark Vantage is kind of common among its users. It seems the problem is not directly from the program but is caused by other applications currently running on the computer. One of the users who encountered it has an internet monitoring tool on his computer that runs together with Windows during startup. It is somewhat preventing 3DMark Vantage from going full screen.

There are no programs running except for the internet monitoring tool. When he closed the program, 3DMark Vantage went full screen successfully and the previous error message didn’t went off. So in your case check if you have a program running in the background. Check your system tray. Close all programs running in the background that starts with Windows during startup that are not important.

After this, try running 3DMark Vantage again then see if it works.
