    I tried in my Dell Latitude D630 with Quadro NVS 135m using Forceware 174.31 WHQL and 175.12, but I can’t get the score. It alwayas error at:
    -Both CPU Test error, the first seem ok, but after it done, it display error message. The second is not loading.
    - The third feature test that reported boosted by 175.12 but cause BSOD using 174.31, and failed back to desktop using 175.12.
    This is the worst 3DMark ever. The best one is when it still Madonion.
