Problem with 3Dmark06

post #1 of 46
Thread Starter 
Hello all, im new so bare with

i did try to find similar threads with this issue but results were inconclusive.

I installed 3Dmark06 and ran the test, first time i ran it, it froze at the start of the second test (about 20 seconds in) that was with no OC on anything.
I just ran the OC profile in the bios of 15% and re-ran it and it froze up durning test 1 (60 seconds in)....now i would hardly call myself knowledgable when it comes to overclocking but im picking it up as i go along....

here is the spec:

ASUS P5W64 WS Professional i975X,
Intel Core 2 Duo E6600, Socket 775,
520W Corsair HX Series Modular PSU,
256MB Sapphire Radeon X1950Pro, x 2
2Gb (2X1Gb) CorsairTwinX XMS2, DDR2 800Mhz ,RAM

thanks is advance

His card shouldnt have any Driver issues.

Now these are the Usual Fixes for your issues.

1. Update your Motherboards Chipset Drivers
2. Update your G-card to the latest drivers here www.ATI.com

However When instlling new drivers Follow this to avoid issues.

Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below.

1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:
http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers.
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure )
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them.

Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.
