My PC changes to themes when I run Prime95 Tags: CPUs Windows 7 Last response: January 17, 2013 4:15 AM in CPUs Share andy_pandy January 16, 2013 11:51:27 PM I was running Prime95 and 30 min into the test the Windows theme changes from Windows 7 Aero theme to Windows 7 Basic theme. Than, it changes to Aero to Basic. Vice versa... Is this normal? Does this happen to anyone else? I don't get any errors or warning ...
