  1. The last time this program would run to completion was last April.Now the screen freezes half way thru second test.
    I formatted the hard drive last week--but still freezes.Using a GF6600gt with latest driver--also have had a "sync out of range " error.

    Have you overclocked anything?

    Try running MemTest, if the RAM is in the least bit dodgy it'll lock up every time.

    Yes it was overclocked to 500/900 and ran okay (in April) After formatting I ran at Default setting 300/900 and it froze.

    Also computer occasionally restarts on its own---every other day or so!

    Yup--You were right! I changed settings to 400/720 and ran test no problem!
    I now have the slowest of comparable systems and 11th from the bottom in performance overall!!(LOL)
    Thanks for the advice--I think I'll slowly bump up settings from here until it fails again!!
