  • 2D graphics test - No operation reported in timeout period - solution

    During internal testing we came across this problem with the 2D graphics test.

    The test wouild work for a short period then display the message,
    2D graphics test - No operation reported in timeout period
    and the small 2D test window would appear to have locked up or partially freeze.

    There might also be some relation to the starting of the screen saver and the Windows automatic log function (returning the user the login screen). Both of which should probably be turned off for testing.

    The O/S was Windows XP SP3. The video card was ATI Radeon HD 3870.

    If you turn on Level 2 debug logging in BurnInTest then you can this additional detail in the trace log.
    2D test error, code: DDERR_CANTLOCKSURFACE
    (A Windows DirectX Direct Draw Error, which prevents BurnInTest from accessing the video card RAM, blockng testing, and then triggering the watch dog timer).

    This problem appears to be a device driver bug which can be fixed by updating the video card drivers. After the update of the video card driver the problem disappears.
