    Low cpu performance in 3dmark

    Hello guys

    3 months ago i build a pc for my mom.I kept having problems with xp.The explorer.exe ect kept crashing.So i installed vista 64 bit and the performance was very bad and switched to the 32 bit version.It runs very good and fast but when i run 3dmark 2006 (cpu test) i get 0-1 fps.Can someone help me determine if there is a setting i should adjust?Maybe the frontside bus of the cpu is under clocked?Or 3dmark 2006 only uses 1 core of the cpu?Please help this nub to understand or solve this.Thanks greets ToBbErT!

    Perfectly normal, it isn't supposed to run fast

    this is normal. Some of the most powerful processors would not even be able to get the cpu test in 3dmark06 above 5 FPS. there is nothing at all wrong with your PC. Perfectly normal.
