Prime95 worker won't start

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Good evening all,

I've got a question that's been irking me since I've been trying to OC my I7-870.

I've tried a couple different OC configurations and have gone back to stock (resetting the bios on my Asus P7P55D-E Pro to default multiplier, block, voltages, etc).

Anyway, my issue is, whenever I try to run Prime95, worker #4 (of 8) doesn't start at the same time as the other 7. It just sits there saying "worker starting" and never does anything. Does this sound like there might be some kind of hardware issue? If I recall correctly it's been doing that even before I tried any sort of OC.

Thanks much,

Justin

Have you tried any other stress test program?
Did you try downloading another copy of P95?
What OS are you running?

I've never seen this one before
