Has anyone had this problem before? attachment.php?attachmentid=6279&stc=1 This is the first time that Windows did this, the program will not run a benchmark at all, and reinstalling 3DMark hasn't done shit. If anybody knows where the cause of the problem may be, suggestions would be appreciated.

Disable any other applications that are running.

What setting are you using, 3dmark03 can overstress even the high end cards, iv done this to my 5900 ultra.

Ok, so i set the resolution to the same as Windows (1280x1024) and started the benchmark. It ran fine till the cpu tests, then "Windows Lost Focus" again. Heh, Windows with A.D.D. Anyway, i reinstalled windows and now it runs great. :rolleyes: Thanks for the help tho. I have never seen windows pull anything like this, just wondering if anyone has experienced a similar problem.
