RE: system freeze during Windows Experience Index rating
I'm also having problems with the refresh option. It starts going, and
freezes my computer completely up after about 15-20 seconds. I have Pentium
D 2.8GHz, 2GB RAM.. GeForce 7900GT OC video card.. I'm not really sure what's
up with it, I'm happy with everything else.. any ideas?
