  • New 9800GT Error 2 during Performance Test run

    Having a strange problem - I installed a 9800GTX in my PC with Windows 7 RTM (64bit). Installed the latest drivers and it crashes when I run Performacne Test. During the 3D Graphics Mark - when I try and run 3D Graphics - Complex" I get the following error:

    "The DirectX 9 test was interrupted or there was an error during the rendering of the 3D scene. The results for this test will not be used

    Error Number: 2"

    The machine is a fresh install with 8gb ram. I upgraded from an EVGA 9400 GT to the 9800 GT and the test was fine with the 9400. Anyone have any ideas?

    This is a known problem, error code 2 on Windows 7 is caused by using a multiple monitor setup. We are working to address this problem. In the meantime you should be able to run the tests succesfully by disabling all but your primary monitor during testing.

      Your knowledge is magical. Infact I am running dual monitors. Thanks! I'll give it a try!
