PassMark BurnInTest™ is a software tool that allows all the major sub-systems of a computer to be simultaneously stress tested for endurance, reliability and stability.
Some CPU speed information is now not collected when the command line parameter '-W' (minimize system information collection) is used. Some systems, e.g. a customer's Windows Embedded Standard system, explicitly flags support of the mechanism used, but doesn't support it. This leads to a BSOD on startup (STOP: 0x0000008E (0xC0000005, ...) intelppm.sys).
Corrected a crash on startup for a particular system (related to the collection of SMBIOS system information).
Corrected a crash in Preferences->Sound when a non existent file name is manually entered.
An explicit 1.5GB limit on the amount of video memory that 32-bit BurnInTest will test has been added. This is due to limitations with the default configuration of 32-bit Windows. On 64-bit systems, 64-bit BurnInTest should be used where this limit does not exist for BurnInTest and other applications.
Added a new video playback error for CPU usage exceeded for audio playback when certain sound effects are enabled. Added additional details for a set of audio events during video playback.
Improved the detection of the number of CPU cores when the "CPUID limit" BIOS setting is enabled (not the normal setting).
Corrected a minor resource (handle) leak with the Optical drive test when non-PassMark optical media is used and the test detects and reports errors. This could potentially cause system problems during the test if a very large number of Optical drive errors are found.
