  1. I've installed Novabench on a Windows 10 version 1809 system. As soon as I start any test I get an error "There was a problem running this test. Please try again, or reinstall Novabench". I've re-installed it but still get the error. Are there any log files I can look at?
  2. Hi everyone, A few months ago, I made a post re. my computer performance slowing whenever it was plugged in/unplugged (copied text below). Well, with further testing, I realize the performance drops any time I adjust my screen brightness. I have an HD 3000 graphics card, which I see is not compatible with Windows 10. I tried reinstalling the driver, and even using old drivers to no avail. However, I've had W10 for a while, and this problem just started. Do you think I could solve my problem by reverting to Windows 7? Thanks! (quoted text from old post) Hi everyone, I'm new to the forum, so please excuse any lack of etiquette. For a few months now, I have noticed that my laptop's performance decreases SIGNIFICANTLY when I unplug my laptop (from 620s-240s). Everything is very choppy - especially video playback. This problem is NOT reversed when I plug my laptop back in; however, a restart solves the problem. Task manager shows no change in resource usage or availability. I have the power settings in Windows 10 set to 'max performance' both while plugged in, and on battery power. If I start my computer unplugged, the performance numbers are in the 620s. However, if I then plug it in and retest, the numbers drop back into the 240s. So, the problem seems to manifest itself any time I plug in or unplug my laptop. Does anyone have any thoughts about what could be the cause? Thanks! edit: I just noticed one of the results says it was run on Windows 7, the other on 10. I am running 10, and this is the (oddly) the only test I have done where it shows I am running Windows 7.
  3. NovaBench on Windows 10 Pro only shows the base clock speed when I am overclocked. Does NovaBench actually test anything or does it just read basic information about your computer (ie. Control Panel > System and Security > System Info - because that's what it's basing it's test on for me. Windows 10 x64 - Version 1511 (OS Build 10586.318) And I did pay $200.00 USD for this. My build specs can be found at the following link. NovaBench bases my score on the base clock of my i7 5820K CPU which is 3.30GHz - I am overclocked to 4.2GHz @100 x 42 I have to be doing something wrong here, or is this a bug with the program and Windows 10? Super frustrating! Is Windows 10 messing up the entire test by reporting the base clock instead of the overclock that NovaBench is supposed to read but can't?

  4. I ran NB on my computer several times over the last few years and for some reason my results are very slow with windows 10. I got an 1822 back in 2011 and a 1510 with windows 10 beta in May of this year after I overclocked my machine. I turned off the overclock and tested with windows 10 beta and got a 1432. I ran again with the beta a few days ago and got 1148. I installed the full version of Windows 10 pro and got 1201. Is my computer getting worse or is this something Windows 10 is causing?
