I know this is a very noobish question but when I try to start prime95 it will not start. I just downloaded it and unzipped everything successfully but when I try to start the program it automatically stops and windows flags that it has encountered a problem and must close.
Is there something that I am missing? There are no other programs running when I try to start the program.
Not oveclocked yet and I am running the 32 version as I am running Windows XP. I downloaded Heaven and Intel burn test as well and I got the same message. I know it is something that I am doing but I just can't figure our what (lol). I just built this system last week (2500k - P67 board) and my temps in Hardware monitor are around 28 degrees to 32 degrees but I still want to run Prime for safety's sake.
well if benchmarks wont run something is up for sure
are you running an old os from your last system or a fresh install ?
are all your drivers up to date ?
check your bios as well make sure your on the newest one.
