Windows 7: User Experience Rating crashes at Direct3D 10 Texture Load Assessment

User Experience Rating crashes at Direct3D 10 Texture Load Assessment


I just finished building a new computer last week. It runs very well, and it scored a 7.8 out of 7.9 overall on the Windows User Experience Rating. The problem I am having is that I had to reinstall windows (I messed up the first installation) and now when I try to run the assessment again it always crashes on "Direct3D 10 Texture Load Assessment."

I have all the latest drivers and DirectX 11 installed. Any idea why it would do this when it did not on my previous Windows installation?

My i7 990X is currently at 4.65 GHz.
I was using MSI afterburner to overclock my GPU, but I confirmed that it is not the problem.

The obvious suggestion is to make sure the video driver is up to date. Try this, run the winsat formal and see if it shows any errors

Start> In search box type cmd> Right click on cmd.exe in results above and choose Run as administrator> In command prompt type

winsat formal


Post a screen shot of any errors encountered.

Windows 7 64-bit

This late, but just for the record to anyone who comes across the same problem. I bought a Gigabyte Nvida GTS 450 GDDR5 and had the same problem when running the test. Apparently the card speed are set higher than the speed the motherboard currently set at. I downloaded a utility called Easy Boost from the Gigabyte website. I downclocked the GPU speed by adjusting the shader speed and memory speed down and re-ran and passed the test.

Windows 7 Ultimate x64

I had this issue and found only one post in another forum that actually helped. The post was regarding a setting with their Geforce card. I found that the issue was similar enough to what I was exprriencing to try the fix.

The issue was Morphological anti liaising was disabled in the and catalyst software. All I had to do was enable it. I hope this helps anyone else having the issue of direct x freezing your computer. I could not even run the window assesment (froze on direct x 10 batch).
